Big Timber Creek - Swamp Creek Watershed Group

Presentation of the Organization

Swamp Creek and Big Timber Creek originate high up in the east side of the Crazy Mountains. The two creeks total nearly 50 miles of stream that join together about six miles north of Big Timber and flow into the Yellowstone River just east of Big Timber. The confluence site was made famous as the "Rivers Across" site where the Lewis & Clark exploration group camped during their trip. The two streams that make up this "Rivers Across" are the Boulder River on the East side of the Yellowstone and almost directly across is the Big Timber Creek coming into the Yellowstone on the West side. The Big Timber Creek and Swamp Creek are smaller streams that serve agriculture and recreation.
