Things to Do in Ennis, Montana

The spirit of the West is alive and well in Ennis, Montana. A tradition of supplying local ranchers and travelers that began during the western expansion and Gold Rush of 1863 continues today. Ennis can provide all the necessities for visitors including a full-service grocery store, laundry, ATM's and service stations. Heck, we even have gourmet coffee!
Stroll on Downtown

This is no ordinary small western town. Our Main Street is host to excellent restaurants, colorful western bars, shops, and galleries. Fishermen can find the latest "hot" fly and get information on current area river conditions at one of the tackle shops.

Ennis also boasts an amazing display of outdoor sculptures from our Cowboy soldier at the Veterans Memorial to "A Wreck Waiting to Happen" at Rose Park from noted western artists Dave Lemon, Jim Dolan, and others. Galleries feature jewelry, baskets, gourds, prints, and original oil and watercolors. The Riverstone Gallery is home to Bern and Lexi Sundell—both award-winning artists.

Fish and Canoe on the Madison River

Few places offer as amazing of a fishing trip as Montana does. The Madison River flows through Yellowstone National Park, making it a beautiful location to sit down, relax, and wait for the fish to hop in your boat.

Fly Fishing is massively popular in the river as well. Make sure your Montana fishing license is up-to-date, and get to fishing!
