Hello there all! I'm a writer who is looking for some info about Wolf Point. I have a story I'm working on that is set there and I wanted to get a feel for what it's like from people who live in or around the area. What's the weather like? Do you have a lot of cloudy days? What are the people like(I thought they were all wonderfully nice, but then again it could have been because I was just a tourist)? Is it close to any heavily wooded areas? What are the popular hangabouts in the town? Any information about the area would be extremly helpful. I want to make sure I get it right. Thanks

I grew up about 50 miles north of Wolf Point, and the weather up there was very frequently windy, extremely cold in the winter and hot in the summer. We occasionally got thunderstorms with intense lightning/thunder, which is something I really miss.

The area's economy is agriculturally driven. Wolf Point has a high population of Native Americans, so that culture is definitely prevelant there.

For the most part, I rarely ran into extremely friendly people in Wolf Point. However, people like that definitely are there. The town is a bit "ghetto" with crime rates higher than you would imagine for a small Montanan town.

As for heavily wooded areas, there really aren't any that I can think of. Fort Peck Reservoir is nearby, and I'm sure there are some "wooded" areas around there, but not heavily.

I don't know anything about Wolf Point, but I can offer some information on the lower cost of living in Montana. Oftentimes in these small towns you may not earn enough to go to the movies or eat out very often. That's ok, though, because many small towns in Montana have a 1 screen theater and only a couple restaurants to choose from. So you may not make as much but also don't have the same opportunity to spend it.
