Elkhorn State Park & Ghost Town

Search Visit Montana

This park is an excellent example of frontier architecture during the silver boom of the 1880's. The once-vibrant town had its own mill and smelter producing $30,000 worth of ore per month. Many of the buildings are dotted with bullet holes, as mute testimony to the wild and lawless era in which the town thrived. The cemetery still evokes the memory of those who lived, worked and died here. The park is open seasonally for day use only and is located 18 miles northeast of Boulder on Highway 69. Visitors are asked to respect private land.
