About Red LodgeAt the base of the Beartooth Mountains, Red Lodge is an all-year resort town. Winter sports include downhill and cross-country skiing, while summer pursuits range from trout fishing and boating to water skiing on Cooney Reservoir.

Local legend attributes the town's name to a tribe of Crow Indians called the Red Lodge Clan, who covered their tepees with the local red clay. Coal-mining operations later drew many Europeans to the area.

The Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery, 11 W. Eighth St., displays the works of local and regional artists in the 1889 Northern Pacific Depot building; phone (406) 446-1370. A red Northern Pacific caboose sits on a section of restored track adjacent to the depot.
