The whole nine-mile area is amazing in history. This ranger station is an historic ranch where the Forest Service mules are raised. If you go on up the Nine-Mile you will come to a Water Restoration on the river. It is a reclamation project with...More

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

The visitor center was closed but they have a well done self guided tour. We were glad we drove out to see the center and the mules in residence. We also went further up the hill to see the old CCC site - also worth...More

The Remount Depot is an historic ranch where the Forest Service Mules are raised and stabled. They are mostly parade and show mules now, but they are wonderful to visits. The reception center has lots of free Forest Service goodies for the kids and offers...More

This little National Park jewel off Hwy 90 near Huson Montana is the USA's only mule remount depot facility housed in a part of the 1930's CCC (Civilian Conservation Corp). The mules are used to fight back country wildfires in the American West in situations...More

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...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...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.

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
