Northwest Montana Travel Region
St. Regis, Montana

St. Regis Montana is a small town, population only 319 according to the 2010 census, but a handy waypoint if not a destination. There is more here than meets the eye when seen from I-90. You may even want to make it a destination for a night or two or more.

St. Regis is somewhat of an oasis along the high-speed ribbon of gray that is I-90 when traveling either east or west in a hurry to get somewhere else. The town is small in size (only 510 acres) but big in potential. So, slow down and take a break from the rush and enjoy what this little village has to offer.

St. Regis also is a popular waypoint for travelers driving to Glacier National Park when driving I-90. The St. Regis exit, Exit 33, is located at the junction of Montana State Route 135 with I-90. The exit is 33 miles east of Lookout Pass and about 71 miles west of Missoula and provides access to one of the more popular routes to Glacier NP. The town also is located at the confluence of the St. Regis and Clark Fork Rivers
But whether exiting here to drive to Glacier, or driving straight through on I-90, a stop in St. Regis is well worth the time. There is much to see and do.

Stop in St. Regis for Food and Rest

Looking for food? Then you have found the right place for a burger and a milkshake, a steak or even seafood.

Talking Bird Restaurant and Casino in St. Regis

The St. Regis Travel Center is a complex that includes a restaurant, gift shop, minimarket and a Conoco service station. Dine in, grab supplies for a quick picnic at a nearby park, or just pick up snacks for back on the road. Note, however, that the St. Regis Travel Center is not to be confused with the state visitor center, which also is located in St. Regis on Highway 135 a short distance north of the main intersection.

Jaspers Restaurant, a couple of doors down from the “Travel Center”, is connected to a casino and might suit the traveler wanting to while away some time at the slots, enjoy a beverage of choice or a more leisurely meal. Next to Jaspers is the Talking Bird Saloon.

Then, a few blocks northeast of the main intersection on Highway 135 you will find the OK Cafe & Casino, which is a dinner that also is popular with travelers.

If you are looking for groceries, then stop at Stangs Food Center, which is located just east of the main intersection, and is open 9AM–9PM.

Attractions

St. Regis offers a large community park and annually host several events. One is the Memorial Day Weekend Parade and Flea Market. The year 2017 marked the 41st year of the Memorial Day parade.

Flea Market in St. Regis

John Cheesman, a long-time resident of St. Regis and a member of the Resort Board and the Community Council, says, “The Memorial Day flea market features more than 200 vendors and draws crowds of 5,000 or more people from all over the northwest.” In the most recent year, 220 vendor spaces all sold out three weeks prior to the Flea Market. The cost charged for a 20-foot by 24-foot space is $90.00 for the three-day event.
Cheesman noted that vendors participating in the flea market come from as far away as Seattle as well as from such places as Spokane, Coeur 'd Alene, Sandpoint and Moscow, Idaho as well as from Billings, Bozeman, Kalispell and Missoula, Montana. He added, “There are probably more out-of-staters than there are Montanans that set up booths.”

Money from the event goes for community projects and a scholarship for high school kids. Cheesman explained that qualification for obtaining a scholarship is based on community involvement and community service rather than grades.

To accommodate such large crowds, the Community Council runs a shuttle every 30 minutes from parking areas to the main event.

Another big event is the Fourth of July parade featuring 100 or more vehicles and floats. Following the parade is a big fireworks display.
