There's an attractive municipal swimming facility at the west end of Main Street.

Fishing & Boating

Miles City isn't classic Montana fishing country, but there is plenty of access to the Yellowstone and Tongue rivers for walleye, sauger, catfish, crappie, and, occasionally, the unusual paddlefish. Fishing throughout the area is best in late spring and early fall. Twelve-Mile Dam, 11 miles south of Miles City on Mont. 59, then 1 mile south on Tongue River Road, has camping facilities, a boat launch, and a handicapped-accessible fishing platform.

Luring in floaters with Yellowstone River access, Pirogue Island State Park (tel. 406/234-0926; www.fwp.mt.gov) is just north of Miles City. Go 1 mile north on Mont. 59, then 2 miles east on Kinsey Highway, then 2 miles south on an unnamed county road (look for a sign for the park). Stop by Red Rock Sporting Goods, 700 S. Haynes Ave. (tel. 406/232-2716), for gear and information.

Golf

Miles City has the Town and Country Club golf course (tel. 406/234-1500) running along the banks of the Tongue River southeast of town. It's relatively short -- 3,280 yards. Greens fees are $27 to $32 for 18 holes; carts are $14 per rider.
