Nestled in the Northeast corner of the spectacular Flathead Valley lies a community which boasts Montana hospitality and family fun like no other. With a central location just minutes from Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake, numerous golf courses and the Whitefish Mountain Resort, you'll find year round attractions, accommodations and dining with honest Montana flavor and value. Not only is Columbia Falls "The Gateway to Glacier National Park," it is the pathway to a rustic and scenic alternative route to the park at the Camas Creek Park Entrance. County Road 486, also called the North Fork Road, follows along the North Fork of the Flathead River. This river is the Western boundary of the park and has been designated a Wild and Scenic River. It is about 20 miles to Camas Creek Park entrance. The last nine miles of this roadway are not currently paved. There are many recreational sites along this rustic route. The residents pride themselves on maintaining the "small town" family-oriented character, which is the backbone of this community.
