View of mountains and green pine trees along the Clark Fork of the Columbia River

Blue Slide Lodge

In the Northwest corner of the Big Sky State is Sanders County; well known for its reservoirs and mountains along the Clark Fork of the Columbia River. West of the town of Thompson Falls the Blue Slide Road follows the river downstream to a scenic landmark of natural color called the Blue Slide. This geological feature stands 500 vertical feet from the shore to the meadow and mountains near a sweeping bend of river. Sitting with your morning coffee wrapped in the beauty and serenity makes it hard to get up and going to all of the adventures that wait right out your back door.

These adventures include forestry trail hiking into mountain lakes were you might discover waterfalls along the way. Not to mention what type of wildlife you might see. We have deer, mountain sheep, elk, moose and bear that make this area their home. If you like to mountain bike there are numerous forestry roads and trails for beautiful scenic rides. We provide a kayak for paddling or fishing on the expansive Clark Fork River. This area is home to one of the biggest bass fishing tournaments in the western part of Montana. We also have available, for an extra daily cost, a pontoon and/or bass boat. We are also only five miles away from white, sandy beaches, which is perfect for families with kids.
