Missouri River Country Draws Tourists to Region


Missouri River Country is Montana’s northeastern tourism region which covers Garfield, McCone, Phillips, Valley, Sheridan, Daniels, Richland and Roosevelt Counties along with the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. The organization is managed by a Board of Directors that is appointed by their respective County Commissioners.

To draw visitors to the area, Missouri River promotes Northeast Montana as an ideal destination for the outdoor adventurist, geo-tourist, history buffs, Native American Culturists, Dinosaur Trail followers, hunters, fishermen, and the overall recreationist.

As part of their marketing strategy, Missouri River Country puts together a travel planner every other year that is both informative and attractive. The organization started the design process for the upcoming travel planner in July of 2016, and it will be completed and printed later this year.

To make the planner attractive, the group uses a variety of photographs taken from our area, and encourages you to share your amazing photos for future editions.

To share your photos email them to [email protected] To be eligible to appear in the publication, the photo must include photo permission and be in high resolution of 300 dpi or greater. Submitted photos that are used in the flyer will give credit to the photographer.

Travel and recreation by visitors to Northeast Montana is a vital contributor to the economy, so help promote your community and show the beauty and many attractions and events that make our part of the state worth visiting.
