Savage is an unincorporated community in Richland County, Montana, United States. Savage is located on the Yellowstone River and Montana Highway 16 20 miles (32 km) south-southwest of Sidney.


Savage is named for H. M. Savage, supervising engineer for the U. S. Reclamation Service. For many years it was a busy shipping point for grain farmers and river-bottom beet growers.[2] Sugar beet farms benefited with the opening of a sugar beet factory in Sidney in 1925.


Basic services are available in the community and boating access to the Yellowstone River is nearby.


According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Savage has a semi-arid climate, abbreviated "BSk" on climate maps.[3]
