    Passing through town on our way back to Washington. Watching a movie made our list of things to do based on recommendations and reviews. This theater was a great place to watch a movie. The interior was incredible (ornate) and there was a balcony that you need to check out. A definate must if you have the opportunity.

    My son's bucket list was to fish in Montana. We stopped here on our way to Philipsburg and the sapphire mine. Beautiful area and we hiked while he fished. (unfortunately his luck wasn't good) We saw many boats out enjoying the water.

    I almost don't want to write this review, because I feel like I'm giving away a secret. This mountain has a lot of pitch and wonderful steep terrain (with trees) on the back side. It was an easy experience to ski here, the food services were great, and we appreciated that people were wearing masks. Heads up: make sure to reserve lift tickets on weekends and a place in the dining area--everything is limited this year because of covid.

    Great atmosphere and yummy beers. I love the patio area—lots of shade & outdoor dining areas. The taco truck is there W-Sun and is delicious. I loved the rhubarb beer and my husband loved the pond monster hazy ipa. I’ll definitely be back

    We had hoped to get a lot closer to the smoke stack, which we had been seeing for years driving I-80. That was a bit disappointing; the information we got though from the view point was great!
    Plenty of parking, free of charge and we spent about 45 minutes there.

    My husband and I volunteered as camp hosts at Lost Creek State Park during the summer of 2019. We loved it—it’s a small and less-visited State Park, with around 20 rustic campsites (no hookups, with water available at a central pump). There are a few sites suitable for larger rv’s near the entrance to the park; though the shadier sites, on a loop a mile up the road, are fine for midsized trailers, class c campers, vans, etc. Campsites have fire rings and picnic tables, and are large enough to feel private and uncrowded. The pit toilets (4 spread throughout the park) are absolutely the cleanest you’ll ever experience, thanks to Duane- the friendliest and most diligent caretaker imaginable!

    The park follows along Lost Creek, which tumbles over a beautiful, 50- foot waterfall at the top of the park, before being dammed by numerous, industrious resident beavers. You can usually watch them if you walk along the road just before nightfall. We also saw lots of birds, including a golden eagle family whose baby we watched grow from a fierce, downy newborn to a fully grown juvenile soaring over the cliffs.

    The park is home to other animals: bears, cougars, deer, moose, ground squirrels, chipmunks, pack rats, bats, pikas in the talus slopes...according to the locals (very friendly folks who regularly visit the park for picnics and hikes), bighorn sheep used to climb along the cliffs, but none have been spotted recently. We didn’t see any cougars, and only saw one moose in the early spring; we did see bears at the end of summer (they like the dogwood berries that ripen in mid-August!). We also saw lots of butterflies, and tiny garter snakes and frogs.

    In addition to the pleasant walk up the road, a well-maintained forest service trail leads from the upper campground, along an old logging or mining road. This trail generally follows the creek, and connects to a trail that goes over the cliffs and ends near a Job Corps center just outside of Anaconda. There’s a parking lot for cars and horse trailers near the trailhead.

    Probably the most spectacular features of the park are the massive cliffs that tower 1200 feet over the canyon. Seeps trickle down the rock in an area near the entrance; huge veins of quartz are visible in others. There are some routes established for climbers, whom we’d occasionally see clambering over the rock face.

    If you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful, beautiful area to visit or to camp in, Lost Creek State Park is hard to beat! It’s located about 7 miles outside of Anaconda, Montana, so it’s an easy stop on the route between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks.

    We visit Anaconda regularly and one of us grew up here. Even so, we had a few questions about specific backroad conditions and directions. All our questions were answered and we were able to find our way to some old haunts. The knowledge level of the staff is appreciated!

    It was worthwhile to visit the St. Timothy's Chapel.

    It is open all the time and they close it when the sky becomes dark.

    This church is named St. Timothy's Memorial chapel.

    Timothy Dillon Bowman died at the age of 18.

    The benches are made of wood.

    There are stained-glass windows behind the altar.

    They have sunday services at 11:00 A.M.

    The cross is at the top of the church.

    We have a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains.

    Fun place to stop and shop for antiques. They had good sales and a huge variety of items. I would definitely stop again when I'm in the area!

    This was an unexpected delight. I didn't realize how great this historic library was. The stories and history were quiet a suprise.

    Our first visit. Giving this resort a three because it was a 7 hour drive for us and the location is very remote. Outdated but very clean, and nice staff. Onsite restaurant was good and ample plus cost effective. Golf course onsite was great. Pools and water slide are ample. Disk golf and mini golf are minimalistic. If you are a family that likes to sightsee and not stay put, this may not be the vaca for you.

    I was not surprised to find this church locked, however I did not know it was under major renovation. I did run into a parishioner who filled me in. The outside had been recently pained by professionals and is a stunning red. The inside is void of all items having been removed during the renovation. The church is suppose to open for Easter 2020, but there seemed to be a bit of skepticism about that. The church was built in 1898, but I don't know if this is the first renovation.
