Overview

Description

Located at an ancient crossroads of commerce and culture, Travelers' Rest embraces the cross-cultural history that has shaped the Bitterroot and Missoula valleys. This National Historic Landmark, located just 8 miles south of Missoula, is the only archeologically verified campsite of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the nation. The exact location of their campsite was validated through a unique archeological investigation completed in 2002. Less well-known is the fact that the site that is now Travelers' Rest State Park has long been used by Native peoples, notably the Salish. The ancestral homeland of the Salish encompassed the Bitterroot Valley; their oral tradition includes a creation story about this place that they call Tmsml'i, which means "No Salmon." Bisected by Lolo Creek, Travelers' Rest is also an idyllic spot for a short stroll and offers rich bird habitat, with more than 115 species recorded within the park boundaries.
