I went here on the recommendation of a friend. It was not open although the sign said 9:00 and i was there after this. I did a little hiking and plan on visiting again during open hours.

We really do have to hand it to Montana and their stunning state parks. Each one has something special to offer and Traveler's Rest was no exception. Our focus was primarily on the outside grounds and site of Lewis and Clark's confirmed campsite, but there...More

At first sight I was a little disappointed, but then realized that Travelers’ Rest is a State Park, and not a Federal site. Travelers’ Rest is an archaeologically authenticated Lewis & Clark campsite, though only two pieces of this evidence are on exhibit: a tiny,...More

I grew up in an historic hamlet in NY, where folks liked to joke "George Washington slept here," since he had used a home in our town as headquarters on several occasions during the Revolutionary War. So, arriving at Traveler's Rest, where Meriwether Lewis and...More
