About the area
Broadwater county was officially designated by the Montana Legislature around 1897. It is marked by the Big Belt Mountains to the East and North, the Elkhorn Mountains to the West, and the Horseshoe Hills to the South. Canyon Ferry lake, just to the North of Townsend, covers close to 25 miles and has Bureau of Reclamation maintained recreation sites around the reservoir with boat access available at all of the campsites and other selected sites. The lake is open for boating, ice boat sailing, fishing, camping, sightseeing, picnicking, hiking, hunting, waterskiing, nature study and swimming. In early June, the annual Townsend Cowboy Entertainer Gathering is held at Broadwater high school and in August you might want to visit Holloway park for the annual production of Shakespeare in the Park. The Broadwater County museum, in Townsend, has a large number of artifacts related to the county on display. A new addition has on exhibit a half-scale model of a dugout canoe of the type Lewis & Clark built on their voyage along the upper Missouri, an authentic sheep herders wagon, a horse drawn carriage and a buffalo skin.
