Summer Fun – Glacier National Park Activities

Blue sky against tall pines, long drawn out sunsets, a million and one stars – you will soon discover why they call Montana ‘Big Sky’ country! With summer temperatures possibly hitting 100 you will find the perfect opportunity to head off into the cool air of the mountains or to take a dip in the lakes and rivers. The beauty of Montana at the height of the season is unsurpassed and you will return from your travels with a photograph album that will become the envy of all your friends!

The Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins offers, within a five-mile radius, an array of activities appealing to all ages and a wide range of interests. The Flathead National Forest right outside our back door provides miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking and ample opportunities for fishing and hunting. Nearby KalispellWhitefish and Bigfork have plenty of boutiques and antique shops and, in the summer months, there are ample opportunities for water sports whether touring the Flathead Lake, rafting on the rivers or shooting down the slides at the nearby Big Sky Water Park.

Of course, there is always Glacier National Park, only 8 miles away and open year round, its our main attraction and with good reason!  Visitors to Glacier National Park enjoy the park’s 1 million acres of lakes, sweeping valleys and glacier carved mountains. Glacier is 40 miles wide from east to west, and 50 miles long north to south. A complete suite of wildlife that includes wolves, grizzly bears, lynx and other natural predators sets it apart from nearly every other national park, a park so naturally beautiful it is known as the “Crown Jewel of the Continent.”

Snowshoes and fishing equipment are available for rental from the lodge.

When you are done exploring for the day enjoy dinner at our resident Oso Smokin’ BBQ, try dining at one of our many local restaurants, or cook on the grill at the lodge and enjoy a game of horseshoes or volleyball in our backyard.

Regardless of the weather, season, or activity there is always spectacular scenery. With Montana’s Rocky Mountains as your backdrop, the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins will provide you with the perfect setting for your next family vacation, corporate retreat, or weekend getaway.
