General Information

Description - Troops of the 7th U.S. Cavalry clashed with Sioux and Northern Cheyenne Indians in the famous Battle of the Little Bighorn, June 25-26, 1876, Lt. Col. George A. Custer and all of the men of five companies under his immediate command, more than 260 soldiers, were killed. Custer National Cemetery, containing nearly 5,000 interments, lies within the park.

Climate - The climate in Montana varies with the terrain. The western region of the state receives storm systems from the Pacific Ocean, which tend to be temperate. Because of its mountainous topography the region receives significant snowfall amounts, with winter temperatures usually below freezing. Summer in this region is mild with high temperatures reaching 85 degrees F. Nights are cool in the mountains during the summer. Bring warm layers, hats and gloves if camping. High country roads usually do not open until mid to late June, due to snow accumulation. Thunderstorms are a daily occurrence in June, July and August, so be prepared for rain in the mountains.
