WILD WEST EXPERIENCE

Welcome to the real west.

The Sheridan area is home to one of the highest concentrations of Indian War Battlesites anywhere in the U.S. – flanked by Ft. Phil Kearny to the South near Story, and Custer’s Last Stand/Battle of Little Bighorn National Monument to the north.

Combined with an authentic cowboy heritage and the majestic Bighorn Mountain range looming large over the entire area, you can be sure that a visit to Sheridan will treat you to some of the most amazing experiences the West has to offer!
