Highlights of this Trip
DO: FORT PECK THEATER
Built in 1934 as a temporary movie theater, the structure reflects fine artisanship. Now a venue for summer theater, enjoy a live musical in the summer and check out a treasure in the lobby!
EAT: EUGENE'S PIZZA
Take a stop at Eugene's Pizza in Glasgow for thin-and-crispy pies! Eugene's is truly family friendly - kids can watch pizza makers toss the dough high into the air.
STARTING POINT: MALTA
More than 1,520 miles of shoreline await at Fort Peck Lake in Missouri River Country. Montana's Largest body of water is even longer than the coast of California. We've mapped it all out, so you can put the phone away and be distracted by the epic views and hidden gems!
At Great Plains Dinosaur Museum and Field Station in Malta, join a dino dig and meet Leonardo, the world's best-preserved dinosaur (with fossilized skin intact). Next door, tour the Phillips County Museum, home of Elvis, a 33-foot Brachylophosaurus (named for his pristine pelvis), and H.G. Robinson House, an 1898 mail-order home shipped via rail and built on the frontier.
FORT PECK & GLASGOW
About 90 minutes away from Malta, Peck's Rex, a life-size replica of a local Tyrannosaurus rex, greets you at Fort Peck Interpretive Center. Grab dinner in Glasgow at Eugene's pizza in the evening, and enjoy a live musical at the Fort Peck Theater. After a day of adventure, rough it a bit at The Pines Campgrounds on Fort Peck Lake.
JORDAN & SIDNEY
With the darkest night sky around, Hell Creek State Park near Jordan makes a heavenly place for stargazing. It's game on at Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge, about 60 miles southwest of Glasgow. Spot pronghorn, mule deer, red foxes and coyotes. Near Sidney, float and fish on the Lower Yellowstone River.
