Enjoyed visiting this with my mother and sister-in-law. The ranger/guide was very knowledgeable on the history of the ranger station, and since we were the only ones there at the time, got a personal guided tour. Loved the old buildings which were in remarkable condition....More

This is a good place to take the family on a Sunday drive. Just a few miles west of Missoula you can learn about this important and historic ranger post and see the herd of mules they still use.

We spent several hours here. This is a working Forest Service Ranger Station not just a visitor center. You will learn about pack animals, firefighting and more. Kids will love this place. They get to see horses, mules and fire fighting equipment. The grounds are...More

Interesting site. The interpretation presentation is not very detailed and the tour of the area is limited. A couple of the shops, like the saddle shop and the barn areas are quickly viewed. The background is interesting but the interpretation people need to develop more...More
