Home Ranch Bottoms is a family-friendly cafe, bar and campground located next to Glacier National Park. Next door at our "sister" property, Polebridge Ranch Cabins, you can find cabins and cottages starting at $50/nt and walk to our cafe for dinner and drinks. If you are camping you are already there. We have hot showers for our campers and for walk-ins. All this is in a valley called the North Fork, thirty miles north of Columbia Falls (45 miles from the Glacier Park International Airport near Kalispell, Montana). Home Ranch Bottoms becomes a highlight and backcountry home of your adventure to northwest Montana. Join us for dinner, drinks, beer tastings, wine tastings, huckleberry frostys, music and fun. Bring your guitar, banjo, mandolin, etc. and entertain the patrons. Share your days adventure in the park with other travelers and locals alike. The North Fork of the Flathead River is at your access along our road for twenty five miles in either direction. We are in the middle of a destination for fly-fishing, river rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, backcountry excursions, mountain climbing and more. Bear (black and grizzly), moose, elk, wolves, mountain lions, wolverines, deer (white tail and mule), bald eagles all can be seen on your visit to the North Fork. We are located north of the Camas Road entrance to Glacier National Park and five miles before the Polebridge Ranger Station entrance. Come and camp with us or visit for food and libations(full bar). It will contribute to making your trip an extraordinary vacation.

We stopped by on our way back to camp from Bowman Lake and were hit with some amazing smell. When we asked what smelled so awesome, we were told it was "Taco Tuesday!" Having just eaten, we had a shot of Huckleberry moonshine and made up our minds to come back the following Tuesday (on our way up to Kintla... More

We had a long painful day kayaking on kintla lake and the kitchen at Polebridge was closed. The folks at this oasis were a godsend. They opened up for us and the story has a happy ending. Fantastic food especially the bbq ribs and pulled pork. Have had bbq all over including St. Louis KC Memphis this was as good... More

This was a small bar and grill but great food. I felt like I was in a western movie in the Polebridge area.

We stopped by since there were new owners and had some great pulled pork. Friendly waitress and great stop if traveling to North Fork.

Came across this oasis on the continental divide trail and found Sean and Angie waiting with open arms (and bar)! The best ribs and smoked pulled pork I've ever had and these folks are COOL! I would make this a destination if I didn't have to continue on the bike south... Camped behind the main cabin and will never forget... More

We have been stopping in every drive we take for the past couple years. Both the ex owners and the new owners really make u feel welcomed and like family. Love the Huckleberry milkshakes. Have to have one every time. Can't wait for the next drive up.

With something on the barbecue every day--pork ribs, brisket, wings--the food is very good! Servings are generous and tasty--add some local brew and end it with homemade huckleberry pie. Located in sparsely populated Polebridge, Home Ranch Bottoms is great, especially after a day of hiking. On cool days, the wood stove keeps the place toasty warm. We ate their several... More
