Trout Creek

Located in the Clark Fork Valley approximately 115 miles NW of Missoula, and 65 miles East of Sandpoint, Idaho, Trout Creek Montana is an oasis of Montana hospitality. The sparkling waters of the Clark Fork River are full of trout and bass. The surrounding scenery is fantastic and attracts browsing wildlife, while the rushing mountain streams and sparkling blue alpine lakes are purely exhilarating. Trout Creek is surrounded by millions of acres of National Forest providing endless recreation opportunities for camping, wild life viewing, berry & mushroom picking, and much more! The Clark Fork River, a tributary of the Columbia runs the length of the Valley in Sanders County, and is made ideal for water sports by three reservoirs open to the public. The county encompasses the cabinet Mountain Wilderness and three national forests. Within close proximity are Glacier National Park, the Ross Creek Giant Cedars, Flathead Lake and Lake Pend Oreille. This quiet portion of Montana with its lush green Valleys, rugged mountains, lakes and streams offer a lifestyle of tranquility away from the centers of large industry, congestion, and pollution. Quaint Communities lie nestled in the valleys and along the banks of both the Clark Fork River and the Flathead River close enough for comfort yet far enough apart to feel uncrowded. 

Trout Creek offers many of the services of a large center with a nice selection of businesses and unique shops. Know as the Huckleberry Capital of the world, Trout Creek is home to the Huckleberry Thicket, a family owned business/restaurant that serves great food and sells just about any huckleberry product you can imagine. Another popular stop, The 'Naughty' Pine  bar/restaurant, has the best fried halibut around, as well as a large selection of additional scrumptious menu items. A variety of other small town businesses make Trout Creek their home, including 2 motels, 5 restaurants, 2 gas stations, 2 convenience/grocery stores, and more! Just 15-20 away in Thompson Falls, you also have access to Harvest Foods  for those bigger grocery shopping trips.
