Big Horn River Wyoming History

Big Horn River Wyoming Tags: ,

When you explore properties in the Big Horn Basin, your agents at Running Horse Realty will also inform you about local Wyoming history in the area, including the Big Horn River canyon outside of Lovell Wyoming.

The Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area is a national park unit established in 1966, following the construction of the Yellowtail Dam. It straddles the border between Wyoming and Montana. The dam, named after the famous Crow leader Robert Yellowtail, harnesses the waters of the Bighorn River by turning that variable watercourse into Bighorn Lake. The lake extends 71 miles through Wyoming and Montana. About one third of the park unit is located on the Crow Indian Reservation. Nearly one-quarter of the Pryor Mountains Wild Horse Range lies within the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area.
