Three Forks is a city in Gallatin County, Montana, United States and is located within the watershed valley system of both the Missouri and Mississippi rivers drainage basins — and is historically considered the birthplace or start of the Missouri River. Museum-lovers will appreciate Castle and Carriage House and J.Spencer Watkins Memorial Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Missouri Headwaters State Park and Ennis RV Village. Get out of town with these interesting Three Forks side-trips: Nevada City Ghost Town (in Nevada City), Virginia City (Virginia City National Historic Landmark & Boothill Cemetery) and Ennis (Willies Distillery, Cliff Lake, & more). There's still lots to do: immerse yourself in nature at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park, get engrossed in the history at Headwaters Heritage Museum, witness a stunning natural landmark at Norris Hot Springs, and explore and take pictures at Red Rock Mine & Garnet Gallery.
