COLUMBIA FALLS, MONTANA
Often called "The Gateway to Glacier", Columbia
Falls is the last major town on U.S. Hwy 2 before Glacier National Park
from the West, and the beginning of the North Fork Road alternative to
Glacier Park through the Camas Creek entrance.
It is also the first town on the main Flathead
River after the Middle Fork, South Fork and North Fork of the Flathead
River combine, making it a major stepping off point for rafting trips and
a stepping on point for main Flathead River excursions.
Area activities include Heritage Days, golf at
Meadow Lake Golf Resort, fishing, rafting, summer outdoor concerts,
hiking, biking, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and more.
Columbia Falls is just 15 minutes away from Big
Mountain Ski Resort.
If you are ever in the area around dinner time, be
sure and try the Back Room restaurant. They are known throughout the
valley for their ribs and rotisserie chicken.
