The Town

It’s no surprise Red Lodge is in Outside Magazine as one of the '30 Best Places to Live and Play," and that National Geographic Adventure named it to its "Top Adventure Towns" List.


Far from the noise and congestion of the city and nestled at the base of the Beartooth Mountains, this historic western town is famous for the Beartooth Pass, being a gateway community to Yellowstone National Park and is genuinely one of the "Last Best Places." Red Lodge’s historic downtown area features locally owned shops, a local brew pub, restaurants and an abundance of recreation options right outside your door. Oh, and did we mention that it has more dining and après options per capita than any other place in Montana?


The warmth and hospitality you encounter when visiting Red Lodge and Red Lodge Mountain Resort is paralleled by none with this quintessential western Montana town and laid back attitude of our locals. So, leave the suits at home and relax, you’re on vacation in Red Lodge, where every night is a Friday night!
