Tucked along the banks of Rock Creek, bordering National Forest lands, just outside of Red Lodge, Montana, is the tranquility of the Rock Creek Resort. Moments from the Beartooth Highway and the nearby northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park, the Resort occupies a prime commercial location in one of the world’s most spectacular settings.
With over 38± deeded acres in multiple parcels, bordering the Custer National Forest on the west and east boundaries, a spring-fed stocked trout pond, and with .36± miles of Rock Creek meandering through the property, the Resort grounds perfectly capture the majesty of the Beartooth Mountains. In addition, the property includes the established & approved Mountain Shadows Subdivision on the southeast corner of the property consisting of five 1+ acre lots – with two creek-front lots and three hillside lots.
Rock Creek Resort is excited to announce the upcoming completion of major septic system upgrades. Through collaboration with Interstate Engineering and Peak Water Systems, the existing septic lift station and force main will be upgraded in the spring of 2023 to a state-of-the art DEQ-approved system capable of servicing the Resort far into the future. This upgraded system is valued at over $860,000.00 and is slated for completion in early May 2023.
This established resort operation consists of varied guest accommodations of 84 rooms, the historic Old Piney Dell restaurant, pool and sauna, wedding and conference facilities, and transferable liquor and gambling licenses. The Resort offers the next owner the option for immediate use and almost unlimited possibilities for future expansion in a location that cannot be duplicated.

LAWN AND GARDEN
Rock Creek Resort is an established business providing immediate cash-flow opportunity through current bookings and events. However, should the next owner desire to expand and upgrade the Resort, the possibilities are exceptional on the 38.33± deeded acres in 21 individual parcels. Several options may exist to develop the vacant lots into either additional resort accommodations, individual cabins, employee housing, or even residential housing. The future vision for the Resort could include individual guest cabins nestled in the trees, resort trails along Rock Creek leading guests to explore fire pits, cozy teepees and tranquil hideaways. Expansion of the Old Piney Dell could include outdoor creek-side seating. Possibilities are limited only by the vision of the next owner to further develop this very special property.
“When I first came here forty-five years ago, I fell in love with these mountains. With the beauty of this area, it amazes me that Rock Creek remains virtually undiscovered. And I tell you, that is the most wonderful thing of all.”
“For both Pepi and I, an American dream came true.”
Resorts are often located in the world’s most beautiful settings and Rock Creek Resort’s location along the banks of Rock Creek captures the essence of what a mountain resort locale should encompass. When the Resort was first only a dream of the Gramshammer family, they chose a location that would fill the senses with the natural beauty of the Beartooth mountains. Seldom do established resort properties become available for sale – even more rare is the combination of a cascading creek, National Forest boundary, proximity to a gateway to Yellowstone National Park, summer and winter guest traffic, excellent existing facilities and an established historic restaurant. The Resort is further enhanced by the amount of deeded acreage and possibilities for future expansion and development of this amazing property. Rock Creek Resort affords the next fortunate owner all the necessary attributes to provide guests with a premium resort experience in one of the most beautiful settings in Montana all while continuing the legacy that began with the first resort vision so many years ago.
