Stanton Creek Lodge - Essex

Stanton Creek is one of the last of a dying breed of old Montana establishments. Stanton Creek Lodge was established back in 1932 as a tourist stop selling huckleberries and it had a small grocery store, cafe and cabins. Today we have modern cabins, running water (hot and cold) fresh linens, electric heat and full RV pull through hook ups. Fishing awaits only 300 yards from the lodge and bear, deer, elk and other critters pass nearby.

Stanton Lake trail head is next to the property and is only a one mile hike. In 15 minutes you can be in Glacier National Park on scenic Highway 2 where no fishing license is required with part admission. (catch and release) so bring your fishing gear, hiking boots and be amazed by Glacier National Park. We are family owned and operated.

Stanton Creek Lodge makes for a great 'base camp' when you visit NW Montana. Conveniently located and all the comforts of home in a truly rustic setting. Come visit!

Stanton Creek Lodge offers cabin rentals, and RV sites and tent sites; as well as an old-time bar and cafe for guest's enjoyment and entertainment. We offer the most convenient location for access to Glacier National Park east or west entrance, and the Great Bear Wilderness. 5 secluded RV spots with full hook-ups, 30 amp service, water and Sewer.

Stanton Creek Lodge offers the lowest nightly rate for cabins in the area; starting at only $99.00.

Only pet friendly establishment on Hwy 2 between East and West Glacier. No charge!
