Things To Do

Fun things to do while vacationing on Rock Creek.

Horseback Riding

Spend the day horseback riding in the Rock Creek valley with JM Bar Outfitters. Saddle up and ride through the valley and along the river. Bring a camera along on this scenic adventure. Choose from a two-hour ride on the ranch or a full or half day trip into the mountains.

The horse corrals are only 4 miles from the cabins. Contact Cowboy Jeff to schedule a trail ride at 406-544-5249.

Things to do - National Bison Range

National Bison Range

Just an hour and a half from the cabins in the National Bison Range. Located in the Flathead Valley below the towering Mission Mountains is this very special spot. Here you’ll see bison, antelope, elk, whitetail deer, and many species of birds. In summer, take the Red Sleep Mountain Drive to the summit for views of the Flathead River, the Mission Mountains, and the sweeping Flathead Valley. On site there is a visitor center and picnic area along Mission Creek. The Bison Range is open year round, however, not all roads are open in winter.

Garnet Ghost Town

This well-preserved ghost town lies high in the Garnet Mountains, about an hour from the cabins. Garnet was named for the semi-precious ruby-colored stone found in the area and it was a good place to live. The surrounding mountains were rich in gold-bearing quartz. There was a school, the crime rate was low, and liquor flowed freely in the town’s many saloons.

Learn about the history of this mining community and take in some beautiful Montana scenery on the drive. Garnet Ghost Town was named ‘One Of The Coolest Ghost Towns’ by Travel and Leisure

A Carousel For Missoula

A Carousel for Missoula is a volunteer-built, hand-carved carousel in Missoula, Montana, located on the Clark Fork River in Missoula’s downtown Caras Park within walking distance of the historic Wilma Theatre, Jeannette Rankin Peace Center and Osprey baseball stadium. The carousel is accompanied by a volunteer-built park, Dragon Hollow. This is a great spot to bring the family year round.

Downhill Skiing

There are two awesome ski areas close to the cabins. Discovery Ski Area is located in Philipsburg and is a family friendly mountain. In summer, Discovery has a Bike Park on the mountain.

On the outskirts of Missoula lies the Snow Bowl. Spend the day skiing and then return to the cabin and relax by the fireplace.
