Columbia Falls

Columbia Falls might serve as the gateway to Glacier National Park, but it's much more than just a place to lay your head.
Explore Columbia Falls' surroundings by going to West Glacier (Hidden Lake, Glacier View Golf Club, &more), Glacier National Park (St.Mary Falls, Going-to-the-Sun Road, &more) and Libby (Libby Dam Visitor Center & McGinnis Meadows Cattle and Guest Ranch). Spend the 4th (Fri) exploring nature at Glacier National Park. The adventure continues: kick your exploration up a notch at Glacier ZipLines, explore the activities along Flathead Lake, identify plant and animal life at National Bison Range, and look for gifts at The Shops at Station 8.
