Scattered marble markers record the approx. locations where the 7th Cavalry, scouts fell in the battle against the Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho on 25-26 June, 1876. This is also where Gen. Custer fell. There is also a monument & horse cemetary from the 7th Calvary horses that lost their lives, as well. Attached to the property is a small National... More

Please read the story of thr battle before you visit. In particular: The Last Stand: Custer, Sitting Bull, and the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Then walk into the battlefield and stand quietly. You will relive the battle and be very sad. A very moving experience.

My generation grew up hearing about Custer’s Last Stand which occurred at this site 65 miles south of Billings MT. It was one of those serendipitous visits that open an all new insight to what you thought you knew and you find it is only the tip of the iceberg. This exemplifies the Indian wars of the latter part of... More

It is very easy to picture Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull and Gen. Custer riding horses on this terrian.Our guide, Lee, from Montana Fun Tours, was exceptional. He made history come alive with tales of the battles at Little Big Horn. The white monuments represent where the calvery men fell and the red stones represent where an Indian died. They are... More

This is not to be missed. It is a serene, spiritual place. So much is still being learned about what happened here that it is a dynamic experience. If you can read Nathaniel Philbrick's "The Last Stand " you will find your visit enhanced. ( I read the book and then we listened to the audio version on our drive.... More

Great stop. Park is well organized, plenty of information and help from the park rangers. We spent over an hour here, and considering what there is to see, that is pretty short. You can drive the park which is 5 miles long, but parking along the way is limited to handicap parking spots. So if you are into history, this... More

I was hesitant to stop but really enjoyed the experience. We were blown away by how large the cemetery was. The rangers were very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. It was really hot that day and very little shade so we did not stay as long as we would have liked. It was amazing to see all the stones... More

Visited this site in July 2014 while travelling through Montana. It's an excellent site to visit with a good interpretive centre and lots of information about the battle and those who fought there. We took the Apsaalooke tour which took about an hour. Our guide was very good - his great grandfather had been an Indian scout with Custer. Travelling... More

It was everything I expected. It is unchanged and remains the same as in 1876. You get a real feeling of the atmosphere on June 25- 26 1876. You can see where the indian encampment was the hill on which Custer first saw the village, the route he took along the river and where he was forced to retreat to... More

We didn't have a lot of time but enjoyed what we did see here. It's a peaceful country setting which makes it difficult to imagine the chaos and battle that took place here. What made it easier to imagine was the really great interpretative talk given by the ranger as he explained the entire battle. The visitors center also has... More
