Historically significant in that William Clark carved his initials and the date of his visit into this rock outcropping. This was the only physical mark left by a member of the Lewis and Clark team as they traveled to the Pacific Ocean and back. Samples...More
Nicely maintained park on the small side so easily covered jn an hour. Visitor's Center was delightful and educational without bring overbearing. Well maintained landscaping snd buildings. Opportunities for locals or pre-planners to enjoy lectures snd fun days.
I'd read Undaunted Courage about the Lewis and Clark expedition, but somehow this site, located about 20 miles east of Billings, escaped me. The site of Clark's signature is wonderful, and the visitor center is informative and enjoyable. If you're interested in American history, this...More

We were in Billings and heard about this place, about 28 miles to the northeast. I was not too enthusiastic about driving out to see Captain William Clark's signature from 1806 he carved in a rock on the return trip of the Lewis and Clark...More
Pompey's Pillar is a hidden gem, which is nice in that it is not too crowded. A nice visitor center with exhibits and an exhibition on animals from Montana is nice. Aside from the historic significance of William Clark's signature, the view of the Yellowstone...More
