Roosevelt County, situated in the northeast corner of Montana, covers 2,639 square miles and has a population of 11,059. The North Dakota state line forms its eastern border and the Missouri River is its southern border. The Fort Peck Reservation, home to the Assiniboine and Sioux people, makes up over half the county’s area. Most of the county consists of upland glaciated plains.
