About North Fork Hostel

Situated on the bank of the Flathead River's North Fork at the western rim of the Crown of the Continent-Glacier National Park

Located in the North Fork Valley just west of Glacier National Park, the North Fork Hostel offers guests simple accommodations in an old-fashioned, homey atmosphere. It's a place to get away, relax, meet new friends and enjoy the beauty of Glacier National Park and the Flathead National Forest.

Kerosene and propane lights brighten your nights (there's no electricity on Polebridge). The hostel is heated by old-fashioned wood stoves. A propane cooking range and refrigerators are on hand to make your food preparation easier after you have spent an exciting day exploring this vast wonderland.

Although the area is off the power grid, the hostel has a phone and a computer operated on huge storage batteries. Camcorder and digital camera batteries may be recharged at the hostel. We have wifi and a laptop computer is available for email.

Your Hostel meister is Oliver, who has traveled the world extensively and understands hostellers’ needs. He speaks English, German fluently and some Spanish .

Cross-country skis and boots or snowshoes are available for use in June on Logan Pass in Glacier National Park. Mountain bikes, canoes, and backpacking equipment are also available for rent at a nominal charge.

Frequent guest book comments: "Thanks for sharing your home" and "Best hostel I've seen."

Facilities include eight mixed bunks, private accommodations and cabins, washrooms with a hot shower, a large downstairs shared living room, a warm and pleasant, fully-equipped community kitchen and the spiffiest outhouses on the North Fork. (The interior art is interesting -- look for John's college diploma.)

Behind the hostel are small cabins for family rental. (Some of them have interesting names like the "Goat Chalet.") These cabins are bedrooms with a double bed and/or a day-couch bed. Upstairs is a Family Room and a Private Room. Also, there are two log homes for rent up the road at the Square Peg Ranch.

Don't forget to bring linen or sleeping bags, flashlights and food. Clean sheets can be rented at the hostel. There are plenty of blankets and a few down comforters.

Location Information

The hostel is located on the western edge of Glacier National Park, 1/4 mile (1/2 kilometer) southeast of the Polebridge Mercantile at the end of Beaver Drive (follow the signs). Taking Camas Creek Road through Glacier Park (except when the park is snowed in during the winter) avoids a rough section of the North Fork Road. The North Fork Road north from Columbia Falls to Polebridge is route 486, a gravel road with sections of pavement. In winter when coming from West Glacier, use Blankenship Bridge Road. It is a good idea to have tire chains with you in winter. Try to arrive during daytime to appreciate the views and to locate the hostel easily.
