In 1878, near the site of this campground, a battle between American Indians and cowboys over horses ended the life of one cowboy. Consequently, the skirmish provided the name for Battle Ridge Pass and the campground, both of which could easily be named today for peace and beauty—or wildflowers. The campground sits on a slight tilt toward the west, providing a splendid view of the Bridger Mountains, a north–south subrange of the Rocky Mountains with a serpentine ridgeline. Bozeman Pass, located on I-90 between Livingston and Bozeman, separates the Bridger Range from the Gallatin Mountains, distinguishing the southern edge of this range, named after mountain man Jim Bridger.
