Gateway to Glacier National Park

Columbia Falls might serve as the gateway to Glacier National Park, but it's much more than just a place to lay your head. The town of about 5,000 people offers access to a wealth of things to do outdoors, such as golfing, fishing, hiking, canoeing, rafting, skiing, and snowmobiling. Most visitors come here for convenient access to the lesser-traveled entrance to the park, which brings them along the North Fork of the Flathead River. Entertainment options abound in summer, with live music, waterslides, and mini-golf. Plan the details of your Columbia Falls holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use United States trip itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Columbia Falls

Lodging right in Columbia Falls remains limited, but look for numerous inns, bed and breakfasts, motels, campgrounds, and guest ranches just outside town that offer plenty of places to take your evening rest. Staying on Route 2 east of town provides more convenient access to Glacier National Park, but establishments to the north, south, and west get you away from the road traffic. Book early if you plan to visit in summer.
