Southwestern Montana has been known for its never-ending possibilities for recreation and adventure. Dillon is no exception! You will never find yourself searching for something to do, rather you will find yourself looking to extend your vacation just to fit in all the fun.
Dillon is the headquarters for the Beaverhead Deerlodge National Forest, laying claim to dozens of mountain lakes, great fishing rivers and streams, and wildlife in every nook and cranny of the surrounding area. Explore hundreds of miles of hiking and snowmobile trails, dig for crystals, experience a little piece of the old west by visiting a ghost town, or wet a line in the West’s big fisheries…the Madison, the Beaverhead, and the Big hole. It’s all within reach, right here “where the Old West began”, Dillon and Southwestern Montana.
If outdoor adventure is your game, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find yourself surrounded on three sides by the beautiful Continental Divide. With access to four different mountain ranges, the Beaverhead Mountains of the Bitterroot Range, the Tendoys, the Centennial Range, and the Pioneer Mountains, the outdoor enthusiast will find themselves perfectly at home.
And if you’re looking for a good place to wet a line, then you might get lucky in the seemingly endless riffles and pools of blue ribbon rivers, mountain lakes and valley streams meandering though this region’s lush meadows. Nationally famed fly fishing waters such as the Big Hole and Beaverhead Rivers continue to produce fighting three to six pound Brown and Rainbow trophies. Clark Canyon Dam, only 20 miles south of Dillon, attracts anglers both summer and winter to explore this “land of lunkers”. Stop in to one of the Area’s sporting good stores for any questions you may have, they are ready and willing to provide you with needed information designed to the individual’s preference. Looking for more? Guides afford exciting and educational float trips as well as lake and stream outing.
