Travelers' Rest State Park

Travelers' Rest State Park is home to the only archeologically-verified campsite of the Lewis & Clark expedition. It is also an ancient crossroads of tribal culture. Encompassing 65 acres, including pristine riparian habitat along Lolo Creek, the park marks the intersection between natural and cultural history. The park includes a half-mile loop trail around the historic site, several nature trails, and a Visitors Center and Museum with exhibits on the archaeology of the site, supplies and material from the expedition, and the natural resources used by the Bitterroot Salish tribe.
