Fishtail sits midway between Billings and Bozeman at the foothills of the rugged Beartooth Mountains on the West Rosebud River. This farming and ranching community offers area camping, hiking, fishing and plenty of authentic guest ranches. Find good food, the historic Fishtail General Store (which has been serving the community for well over 100 years) and creek fishing access at Rosebud Isle. Don't miss Fishtail Family Fun Day, held annually in June.
Visit the Tippet Rise Art Center, a unique arts venue set on a 10,260-acre working sheep and cattle ranch. Tippet Rise features films, musical performances and large-scale art installations–which all makes sense in a place where artists can't help but find inspiration in Montana's natural beauty.
