Taking I-15 North 16 miles will bring you to the Gates of the Mountains, 406-458-5241. Here you can follow in Lewis and Clarks' footsteps on a guided boat tour, which comes highly recommended by one of our American Journeys RVers or take a self guided wildlife spotting hike.
While in this Great Falls area, you'll also want to visit the C.M. Russell Museum of Western Art, the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art, the Ulm Pishkun Buffalo Jump Education Center, and the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center at Giant Springs State Park.
If you are more into winter sports, plan your trip during ski season and head 20 miles northwest of Helena to the Great Divide Ski Area, 406-449-3746. Here you'll discover 60 trails on over 70 acres. If you're planning to take a side trip to Yellowstone you'll find it only 176 miles away from Helena.
History buffs won't mind driving one hundred and thirty miles to Fort Benton, MT where they will find the Museum of the Upper Missouri, the Museum of the Northern Great Plains, foundations of some of the old fort buildings at Old Fort Park, historical statues and a replica keelboat at Levee Park along the Missouri River, and wilderness float trips covering some of the same territory as Lewis and Clark.
