This is the view at the Camas Creek entrance to Glacier National Park (Montana, USA), looking across the North Fork of the Flathead River. This area of the Park seems to be recovering nicely from the Robert Fire of 2005. Most of the devastation occurred north of the Camas Creek bridge. You can see a few of the burned trees on the other side of the river.
I urge everybody who visits Glacier Park to check out the Camas Creek area. It seems to be overlooked for the more popular Going-to-the-Sun Highway, but most of the times that we have seen bears and other wildlife have been on the Camas Creek Road, and the view of the mountains here is breathtaking. This part of the Flathead River has great fishing too and you don’t have to have a fishing license to fish in the Park. Jimmy caught two good sized trout in the few minutes that we were here.
You can get to Camas Creek either by turning north, shortly after you enter Glacier Park at West Glacier or by taking the North Fork Highway, north out of Columbia Falls. It’s just a couple of miles north of the Big Creek Ranger Station and campground.
