This friendly town along the Rocky Mountain Front features dinosaur digs, wildlife and scenery.

Choteau offers everything the visitor could want, from specialty shops and restaurants, to art galleries and gas stations. Here you'll find facilities for picnicking, tennis, golf and bowling. Accommodations range from campgrounds to motels, to guest ranches and bed & breakfasts.

Choteau offers a wide range of experiences for people of all ages abilities and interests. Opportunities for sightseeing, horseback riding, hiking, fishing and mountain biking open new vistas.

The areas around Choteau may look familiar to you. Choteau is one of the most popular places in the US to shoot scenery for car commercials. Just about any north-south road will do, paved or gravel. Bring lots of film. You'll burn through it quickly.

From their tepee camp along the Rocky Mountain Front, watch real-life paleontologists excavate the largest dinosaur site in the world. This site has yielded two new species and the first known dinosaur nests.
