Cameron, Montana sits in the middle of a lush valley that has nourished ranchers since the 1880s. Named after the founders of the town-brothers James and Addison Bovey Cameron-since 1919 the town has sat on US Highway 287, one of the gateways to Yellowstone National Park. The rich hay and pasture lands around Cameron reach almost all the way up to the Madison Mountains and their most distinctive peak, Sphinx Mountain. A jagged, ten thousand foot slab of red rock, Sphinx Mountain juts out of the valley, its red sides contrasting beautifully with the lush golf-course green ranchland.

Montana's largest national forest, the 32.2 million acre Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, occupies land to both the east and west of Cameron, making the town a perfect place to start a wilderness adventure. The Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest offers an abundance of hiking, camping, fishing, and wildlife viewing. In addition, the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest contains the Lee Metcalf Wilderness Area. The Lee Metcalf Wilderness Area offers over two hundred thousand acres of pristine, untouched wilderness, perfect for the adventurous wilderness trekker.

Cameron also offers ready access to the blue ribbon fly fishing of the upper Madison River and the hunting and wildlife viewing of the Bear Creek Wildlife Management Area. Elk, mule deer, black bears, grizzlies, mountain grouse, sandhill cranes, raptors, songbirds, and numerous small mammals all find habitat in the Bear Creek Wildlife Management Area in the Madison range.
