Located on the northeastern side of beautiful Montana, Plentywood has previously acted as a trading post for Montanans, North Dakotans, and those on the Canadian border.
Named after nearby Plentywood Creek, it serves a unique place in history as the location where Sioux Indian Sitting Bull eventually surrendered to the US army! But even more than its storied Old West and Native American history, Plentywood lives up to its name of plenty.
Visitors to the area will find welcoming locals, family-friendly and fine dining, as well as nearby state parks and campgrounds. And an added bonus…
It’s just a short drive to the Canadian border for all of your moose-related needs! Plentywood may be smaller than towns like Missoula or Billings but read below to discover everything it has to offer – from historical sites to pristine campgrounds.

An interesting fact: while residents of Plentywood mark 1912 as the town’s birth year, this area was previously prime hunting grounds for the Assiniboine indigenous people!
