Northwest Montana Travel Region

Kalispell

Kalispell, located seven miles northwest of Flathead Lake and 31 miles southwest of Glacier National Park, serves as the center point to some of Northwest Montana's best recreational opportunities. There are more than 10,000 square miles of parks and national forests scattered throughout Northern Montana's Rocky Mountains. Situated just south of the town of Whitefish, Kalispell is bordered on the west by the Kootenai National Forest and on the east by the Flathead National Forest. Both are known for their glacier-carved mountains and inviting beauty.

Established in the early 1890s as a result of railway expansion, Kalispell enjoyed a moderate growth throughout the 1900s, serving as the commercial center for much of the county. Since 2000 however, the city has more than doubled in size and now benefits from a flourishing art community with more than two dozen art galleries and studios spread throughout the city. Antique stores and gift shops offer additional opportunity for shopping. The city features two museums: the Hockaday Museum of Art, featuring exhibits, lectures, classes and events year-round and the 1894 Central School Museum, Kalispell's first school, which now serves as an historical museum.

Accommodations include bed and breakfasts, cabins, campgrounds, hotels and motels, RV parks and vacation rentals. State parks feature camping and RV facilities, and there are additional private lodges and RV parks within an easy commute of Kalispell.

Located at the northwest tip of the state, Kalispell is intersected by US 2 and US 93 and lies 7 miles from Glacier International Airport, the region's major airfield. Interstate 90 is the city's closest interstate and is approximately 100 miles south of the city.
