The Wahkpa Chu'gn Archaeological Site is located west of Havre, Montana on US 2, at the base of a hill behind the Holiday Village Mall and on the banks of the Milk River. Note: There is also a Holiday Village Mall in Great Falls, don't make the mistake of going there instead. The buffalo jump is in Havre, Montana.
There is a display on US 2, in the Holiday Village Mall parking lot, marking the site and providing some information. The entrance to the site, and the Interpretive Center, are located behind the mall.
In 2012 the Interpretive Center opened.
The view from the entrance of the buffalo jump is an incredible view of the Milk River Valley and the badlands to the north of Havre. It quickly becomes apparent why Native American's chose this site for a buffalo jump. The hill is steep, there is a ready supply of water and they could camp in a sheltered area.
