Bozeman Information and Statistcs

Bozeman, Montana prides itself in offering small town atomosphere with big city amenities to residents and visitors alike. Nestled in the Gallatin Valley, encompassed by the majestic Rocky Mountains, Bozeman is considered to be the prime spot of Montana. The city sits in a high mountain valley at an elevation of 4,795 feet and is surrounded on three sides by the Bridger, Gallatin and Tobacco Root mountains. Home of Montana State University, Bozeman is a community of friendly people, and a center for recreation throughout the year. Agriculture continues to be the number one industry for our area, and wheat and barley fields dot the landscape.

Bozeman was established in 1863, in Gallatin County which is 2,517 square miles in size. To put this in perspective, Gallatin County is larger than the states of Rhode Island or Delaware. Much of the county is fertile farm fields, and over 40% is managed by the U.S. Forest Service which provides excellent recreational use.

Outside Magazine has rated Bozeman on of the 15 best sport cities in the U.S. The community received this recognition because of outstanding opportunities for fly fishing, downhill skiing, hunting, hiking, camping, climbing, canoeing and kayaking. Bozeman is an angler's paradise with several outstanding streams and rivers within an hour's drive.

The mountains offer an escape from "city life," and with a short drive, you will find yourself in a whole new world. Camping, hiking, fishing, and biking are common weekend activites, with families and individuals taking advantage of our close proximity to the mountains and camping areas. In the Spring and Summer, wildflowers accentuate the beautiful landscape along numerous trails, and these same areas offer miles of cross country skiing in the winter.
