Greycliff is named for exactly that—a cliff east of town that's made of grey-tinted, conglomerate rock. Ten miles east of Big Timber, Greycliff was once a thriving railroad stop, and is now a close-knit community for farming, ranching and Yellowstone River recreation.
This little community of less than 100 residents is home to the 98-acre Greycliff Prairie Dog Town State Park. Watch the entertaining black-tailed prairie dogs sound their famous "chirps." Interpretive displays help to tell the story of these small mammals and their role in the prairie ecosystem. Bring your binoculars!
The Harrison Homestead is one of the oldest homes in Sweetgrass County. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the recently renovated home Victorian Farmhouse was built by a sheep rancher in 1878 and can be rented for family vacations. The homestead is set in the middle of the 800-acre Vermillion Ranch. Yellowstone River traverses the property for two miles, where you’ll find world-class fishing no matter what time of year it is.
