General info

The only hot springs along Montana’s highline is actually a 3,500 foot deep well that produces more than 700 gallons of 108 degrees F. water per minute. There is an admission charge to soak in the three pools that are on private property. Chose from pools that range in temperatures from 90 to 110 degrees F. The resort is open year-round with a restaurant, lodging, gift shop, golf, baseball, and volleyball. The well was discovered in 1924 when a wildcat oil driller struck a highly pressurized mix of hot water and natural gas. The area is named for Sleeping Buffalo Rock, named by Native Americans, because of it’s resemblance to a buffalo sleeping on the prairie.
