Springdale was a railroad station and a stopping place for people on their way to Hunter's Hot Springs. It was named for the many springs which originate in the region. Near this place in 1806, Indians stole all of Capt. William Clark's hoses, forcing him and his party to travel down the Yellowstone in bull boats. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company) Springdale is on the Yellowstone River, and Springdale Bridge is a state fishing access site along the river. The town is in between Livingston, which is known for its art galleries, and Big Timber. Springdale is also not far from the Greycliff Prairie Dog Town.
