Store sits at 9400 FT. along the 69 mile scenic Beartooth
Highway (US 212) which is designated as an All-American
Road.. It is 38 miles from Red Lodge, Montana and
25 miles from Cooke City, Montana (which is 6 miles from
the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park.)
of the highway is open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day.
It is deemed "America's most beautiful roadway"
by Charles Kuralt of CBS news.
The store was
built on Beartooth Lake and moved to its present location
in the early "60s". It is located on the Shoshone
National Forest, which has ample amounts of camping, hiking,
4- wheeling, and fishing opportunities through the summer
season. When the highway closes in October, the recreation
changes to ice fishing, snowmobiling (some years through
May) X-country skiing, snow shoeing, and snow boarding.
