Top of the World Store sits at 9400 FT. along the 69 mile scenic Beartooth Highway (US 212) which is designated as an All-American Road.. It is 38 miles from Red Lodge, Montana and 25 miles from Cooke City, Montana (which is 6 miles from the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park.)
This stretch of the highway is open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day. It is deemed "America's most beautiful roadway" by Charles Kuralt of CBS news.
The store was built on Beartooth Lake and moved to its present location in the early "60s". It is located on the Shoshone National Forest, which has ample amounts of camping, hiking, 4- wheeling, and fishing opportunities through the summer season. When the highway closes in October, the recreation changes to ice fishing, snowmobiling (some years through May) X-country skiing, snow shoeing, and snow boarding.
Open Memorial Day – Oct. 15. Motel and general store with gas, fishing licenses and grocery supplies.
