Travelers' Rest

Travelers' Rest is located on Lolo Creek 2 miles from the mouth on the right hand side as you face down stream. Located at an ancient crossroads of commerce and culture, Travelers' Rest embraces the cross-cultural history that has shaped the Bitterroot and Missoula valleys. This National Historic Landmark, located just 8 miles south of Missoula, is the only archeologically verified campsite of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the nation. The exact location of their campsite was validated through a unique archeological investigation completed in 2002.

Bisected by Lolo Creek, Travelers' Rest is also an idyllic spot for a short stroll and offers rich bird habitat, with more than 115 species recorded within the park boundaries.In 2009, a new visitor center and museum opened at Travelers' Rest. With a wide variety of historical items from western Montana, the museum is truly a trip through time.
