Montana ain’t called Big Sky Country fer nuthin’! On a clear night, you look up and can see to forever, and then you realize forever is mighty wide!

Broadus, MT is a stargazing haven. Walk out of your room or step out from your tent and you’ll see a sky lit up with more stars than you could have ever imagined. If you walk south of town to the river, you can gaze at the stars with the musical accompaniment of the Powder River and cricket song. A slow, night breeze will keep you cool as you trace the constellations as they roll west behind the picturesque buttes and sandstone hills. So far away from light pollution, you get a firsthand look at the same sky the Native Americans and early settlers saw in the days of the Old West.
