We actually visited Crystal Park in the Pioneer scenic Byway of Montana. The quality of crystals found was outstanding. If you have ever dug crystals you know it is dirty work. We went to nearby Elkhorn Hot Springs to soak and clean up. We were...More

Outside pools were a bit too cool for winter weather. Changing rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly.

Nearly 100 years of serving the public at the locals' favorite lodge and restaurant. Enjoy the authentic rustic atmosphere, good food, and friendly service. Try the bacon bleu burger. Great. Don't be upset by the critters hangig around watching you eat.

My mother and I had 2 separate rooms in the lodge. The walls are so paper thin we could have a conversation with each other in our separate rooms in our normal voices. There are no locks on the doors either. Then, while we were...More

It's best to give them a call and check availability. They don't really have service up there, so it might take a while for them to answer here.
