The town of Rosebud parallels the south shore of the Yellowstone River, ten miles east of Forsyth on Interstate 90 and .  Rosebud County was formed in 1901 from part of Custer County.

This area was explored by fur trappers and traders, with nearby Rosebud Creek (after which the town of Rosebud takes its name) especially popular for beaver. This is also near the spot where Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer camped along the banks of Rosebud Creek on the way to his ultimate defeat at the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876. North of Rosebud on MT 446, Far West State Recreation Area, along Yellowstone River, offers swimming, fishing, boating (a boat ramp is provided) and tent camping.
