The old logging town of Bonner provides the aesthetics and charm of a former “company town” with all the amenities and services a crew might need just down the road in Missoula, including the Bonner Industrial Park, which features thousands of square feet of warehouse space, a gated entry and exit, and exceptional electrical power capabilities.
For more than 120 years, Bonner boasted the state’s largest sawmill and was so isolated that the company built residences for the workers and their families. This quaint row of homes has become iconic to the town. Today, Bonner's main attraction is the KettleHouse Amphitheater, a unique, architecturally pleasing outdoor music venue on the banks of the famous Blackfoot River.
At the newly restored confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot rivers, Milltown State Park features nearly 635 acres of terrain and several miles of river frontage. It is a small but diverse landscape, ranging from restored river bottoms and mature cottonwood stands to a pine forested bluff above the confluence and dramatic rock cliffs over the Blackfoot River. The Milltown State Park Overlook offers a panoramic view of the rivers.
Bonner serves as a gateway to the extraordinary landscapes of the Blackfoot, Seeley and Swan valleys. Nearby attractions include the retro buildings and chairlift of a small ski area turned recreation park called Marshall Mountain (4 miles/9minutes), The Resort at Paw Up in Greenough (26 miles, 29 minutes) and Garnet Ghost Town (33 miles, 56 minutes).
Just a few miles west on Interstate 90, Missoula offers a large number and wide array of accommodations, including bed and breakfasts, hotels, motels, vacation homes and RV parks. Click here for options.
