Sanders County covers a diverse area. Spanning 130 miles of the lower Clark Fork river valley in Northwest Montana the county consists of forested valleys and mountain ranges on the west end and open grasslands towards the east.
Thompson Falls, the county seat, lies in the west-central portion of the couty. While areas of western Sanders County receive in excess of 36" average annual precipitaion, locations near Niarada and Lonepine may experience less than 10", making them fairly arid. The agricultural and natural resource base of the area follows a similar pattern. Traditional farming and ranching communities occupy the eastern third and a mixed small farm-logging economy is found towards the west.

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.

In addition to Thompson Falls, Sanders County is home to Plains, Paradise, Trout Creek, Noxon, and Heron, Montana. For more information on Sanders County and the Thompson Falls area, please visit the websites below, or contact the Thompson Falls Chamber of Commerce at 406-827-4930.
