It is hand-pumped from a spring that you can hear underground, and it has a lovely taste. It can be found on the west side Little Yellowstone Park. There is also a campground that you can spend the night at. The spring has a parking area and a walking trail. A beautiful creek flows through the grounds. You can hike up the beautiful hillside that leads to the park, which is located in a large valley.
According to a local geneology researcher, the spring used be free flowing. When the old highway used go straight past it, everyone would stop to fill water containers. The water is still great, although I'm not sure why they installed the pump device. Fargo (ND) is approximately one hour and 20 minutes NE.
