Moore, Montana 59464
This is the country that Charlie Russell painted and loved so well.
Like all the towns in the Judith Valley Moore, Montana started as a railroad town. Some Montana towns faded away as the railroad changed over time. Moore and Moccasin, Montana were granted a new lease on life when the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railway (BNSF) decided to continue using the two towns as sites for large grain terminals.
There are recreation opportunities in the nearby Lewis and Clark National Forest and Judith River Wildlife Management Area. The Judith River Wildlife Management Area, at the edge of the Little Belt Mountains is a good place to view large elk herds in late fall and winter.
South of the Big Snowy Mountains, there are camping and hiking opportunities at Crystal Lake, 20 miles south of Moore. Ackley Lake State Park is southwest of Moore. Ackley Lake offers diverse water sports opportunities. Stocked with rainbow trout, the lake is often good angling for 10- to 15-inch fish. Info courtesy of Visit Montana and Montana Pictures.
