Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument is a memorial to famed U.S. General George Armstrong Custer, located on the site where he fought and lost his final battle. The monument, however, is not just for Custer but is a symbol of how two cultures clashed, the results of that conflict on both sides, and the effect the conflict had on an emerging American nation. The memorial is a combination of exhibits and artifacts; the story of the battle is told through the photographic images and other items. The monument is open year-round but closed on certain holidays. Book an RV rental near Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, and you'll have complete access to the area and a chance to experience it at your own pace.

Once you're on-site with a Big Horn County motorhome rental, begin with the visitor center; you can gather information before heading further into the monument. Following this, there are three main areas you should see, the Deep Ravine Trail, Custer National Cemetery, and the Tour Road. The Tour Road is perfect for a cruise in a rental campervan; stop at different checkpoints to listen to the audio tour and hear the story of what happened at each location. If you need to stop for a meal, there are restaurants and other urban comforts just down the road in the town of Hardin. You can dine in or ask for takeout and eat your meal back at your Hardin camper rental under a clear Montana sky.

Getting Outdoors

East Pryor Mountain is a part of the mountain range that was named after a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Sergeant Nathaniel Hale Pryor. The mountains are signified by the presence of flint, which was used by natives to craft arrowheads and by the presence of limestone deposits that have been here for almost three hundred million years. The limestone deposits have been dissolved away until they formed caves; do some hiking here, and you're more than likely to see them. You'll also probably get a glimpse of the wild and feral horses that live on the mountain. The Pryor Mountains are home to a free-range horse preserve.

The Wolf Mountains are both scenic and historically important, having been the site of battles during the Great Sioux War of 1876. General George Custer sent scouts into these mountains just before riding into battle at Little Bighorn. There is speculation that Wolf Mountain was first ascended by prospectors seeking gold; the mountain is remote and challenging to climb, but the scenery it provides is reason enough to get a closer look.

Tongue River Breaks Hiding and Riding Area is a section within the Ashland Ranger District; it is considered a sacred area by Northern Cheyenne tribes, and if you decide to hike here, you'll discover why. The area is comprised of tree stands that line the area's rivers, high cliffs, and upright sandstone pillars. The land still has the remains of an old wagon trail that you can follow as you progress through.
