Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Well done, Missoula. Great park for little ones to get outdoors. The Carousel is a great ride for all ages, and the playground is amazing. Would recommend this as a stop for young kids.

    I'm going to basically repeat what some others have said concerning the route/drive up to the ghost town....because apparently I didn't read reviews well enough before we went. Ha!

    If you are coming from I-90...like from Butte...DO NOT listen to Google Maps! When you see the sign that states RVs and buses should take the other route, you need to do the same no matter what you're driving. We didn't realize. We came up the old original mining road. In hindsight I'm really glad we had the experience and the memories! In the moment is was kind of insane. When we got to the top, I've never been so glad to see someone in an orange vest in my life. haha! The friendly lady directing to parking said they have tried so many things to get people not to follow the Google route.

    My last tip about the drive - if you do happen to find yourself on the mining road and you come to the fork where there is signage and you can go left or right. GO RIGHT. We did not. Please don't let all this scare you away. It was such a neat place to see! We happened to be there on a special celebration day with period reenactors, special events, and festivities. The whole town shows up. So neat!

    Small visitors center showing a watch tower, gear used by smokejumpers & past fires. Guided tour of the smokejumpers depot very informative.

    This trail was great!!! Mostly shaded and by the river. Little places you can wade into the water if you want. My dogs loved it! Weekend is crowded and parking is challenging. Weekday is less crowded. We went a couple of times.

    Small visitor center has a couple of short films and several taxidermy animals to look at. We spent about 25 minutes here looking around. Nice little place to stop for a few minutes if you have extra time.

    We came here to visit families and been going to the farmers market every Saturday mornings. I was really impressed, you can find lots of things here from home baking to fresh veggies, coffees. We came here to visit families and been going to the farmers market every Saturday mornings. I was really impressed, you can find lots of things here from home baking to fresh veggies, coffees, tea, Kombucha, lemonade, honey, oils, to seafood, meats, to food trucks. Everything is fresh. What amazed me the most are the people here. They are genuine, and friendly. With the natural beauty of the place, it is truly a nice place to live.

    I loved everything about visiting Fort Missoula! From the indoor museum to the outdoor displays, there was so much to see. This is a place where you could easily spend a few hours and not get bored.

    Lovely campus, hard to find parking but a nice 40 minute walk, including the Oval with grizzly statue to the tower). We did not have time to hike the "M" but it was visible throughout.

    Caras Park is at the center of enjoying a variety of outdoor activities while visiting downtown Missoula, Montana! At the center is a carousel and a large climbing structurefor kids. Take a lovely walk along the Clark's Fork River and watch adventurous people surf or boogie board kayak the river rapids. On Wednesday's in the summer from 11:00-2:00 there are a dozen food trucks to choose lunch from while listening to live musical entertainment!
