Prairie County is steeped in western history and loaded with charm and hospitality. Visit us and discover the rugged beauty of eastern Montana.
Prairie County is home to an abundance of flora and fauna, including pronghorn antelope, whitetail and mule deer, as well as a plethora of bird species. The county also serves as the gateway to the Terry Badlands Wilderness Study Area, which features the magnificent Calypso Trail. The trail presents stunning, unspoiled views of the rugged prairie just as it was 100 years (+) earlier. Brochures for the trail are available. Please fill out a contact form with your request and address if you would like a hiking brochure mailed to you. More brochures are also available at various places throughout Terry.
Along the Frontage Road, once part of Old Highway 10 just outside Fallon, is a well-maintained boat ramp with public access to the Yellowstone River for fishermen, kayaks, and canoes. Experienced river enthusiasts with small watercraft can also put in along the Powder River underneath the railroad bridge west of Terry.
Not to mention, Prairie County is prime agate hunting territory. Agate is a form of chalcedony, which is one of the many varieties of quartz. “Agate season” begins in the spring, after ice jams and winter’s snow melt have churned up a fresh selection of agates along river banks and sloping hillsides. However, reaching great locations can be difficult and treacherous. Searching for agates in the fall is often more rewarding, when accessing trails is easier and water levels in rivers and creeks are lower.
