Jackson, Montana

Jackson lies on the Big Hole valley floor near the headwaters of the Big Hole River. The valley is considered by many to be the finest outdoor recreation area in the state. Visited by Lewis & Clark, they actually cooked dinner in the Hotsprings one night! The town is surrounded by several mountain ranges with numerous streams and high mountain lakes. The fishing, hunting, hiking, skiing and snowmobiling are all exceptional!
