Big Hole National Battlefield preserves a Nez Perce War battlefield located in Montana, United States. The Nez Perce fought a delaying action against the 7th Infantry Regiment (United States) here on August 9 and 10, 1877, during their failed attempt to escape to Canada. This action, the Battle of the Big Hole, was the largest battle fought between the Nez Perce and U.S. Government forces in the five-month conflict known as the Nez Perce War. In 1992 the park was made a part of Nez Perce National Historical Park, which consists of 38 locations in five states, following the flight of the Nez Perce tribe from the U.S. Cavalry, the route of which was designated Nez Perce National Historic Trail in 1986.

Big Hole National Battlefield is located on 1,010.61 acres (409 ha) (including 355 acres/144 ha privately held), 10 miles (16 km) west of Wisdom, Montana on Montana state highway 43. A year-round visitor center is located in the park.

  • First of all, driving 43 east to west felt like moving through "The river runs through it". I have mixed impression of the exhibit and the park, but there is one item that really got our attention...

  • Informative, was not expecting to come upon this on our drive. Loved having the history lesson. Staff was friendly and happy.
  • It was a beautiful place filled with so much US history. Good and bad history. The staff was so helpful and gift shop had some cool stuff. This is a must go when you are near that area of Montana. A great detour off the interstate 15.
