Summer in Columbia Falls and the Flathead Valley is simply, well, perfect.

Long sunshine-filled days up to 17 hours long (sundown as late as 10:15pm in June), warm (but not too warm) days with low humidity start with cool (but not cold) mornings and evenings that are perfect for rest and relaxation after a long, exciting day.

No matter what kind of summer excitement you like, we’ve got it. Hiking, camping, fishing, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, photography, bird watching and much more await you in the greater Columbia Falls area, as well as in the Flathead Valley, Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier National Park.


Columbia Falls and the surrounding areas offer numerous camping opportunities.
