About

Located just 45 miles southeast of Billings on 1-90, Hardin is situated on the banks of the Bighorn River. The Bighorn Canyon and Dam allow a majestic view of the water below. Due north of Hardin are other great locations on the Yellowstone River. Hardin also sits on the edge of the Crow Indian Reservation. The reservation offers two mountain ranges, the rugged Pryor and Bighorn mountains, with rolling hills and semi-arid plains surrounding the peaks. Nearby lies the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation. The Hardin area is rich in history. Each year the Crow celebrate their heritage at the Crow Fair with a pow wow that is the largest in the state. In addition, to the south of Hardin is the Little Bighorn Battlefield, where the Northern Plains Indians defeated Custer and the U.S. Army.
