I was staying in Missoula, and the drive out was lovely as we got out of the flat barren lands and into the trees. This property is lovely and well maintained. I enjoyed the small visitors center and the short walking tour, and of course some of the mules came up to the fence for attention. The history of the... More

We stopped in last week with our grandchildren. Tim, in the visitor center, gave us an excellent background and history of the center and pack mules. With a stroke luck, Smoke Elsner was teaching a class on packing mules and horses to a group of summer interns. He is well known in the west. Kids loved it!

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 beautiful and you can hang out after the tour.

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 of a detailed explanation. We volunteer at a national site and fully develop our area.... More

While out looking for destination start/stop points for our rzr riding groups we came upon a very nice find, a actual working Historical Forest Service Ranch. This place has a visitor center and numerous out buildings along with signs explaining the proceeders and events that make up this place. Very informative and a blast for families with kids that love... More
