Although the Bob Marshall Wilderness is almost in our backyard we had put off this trip for years. My only regret is that we waited so long. We did the week long wilderness pack trip. Every aspect of it was first class; service, equipment, food, and staff, Oh yeah, the fishing was excellent too! Obviously, when you're deep into the... More

We stayed in one of the cabins; very nice; very clean. Staff delivers your morning beverage to your cabin. They have the waders, boots etc.. They pack in the lunches for the day long fishing trips through beautiful Montana Country. We've been there twice and love it. I'd highly recommend going to Spotted Bear.

Worst management I ever experienced!!Worst management I ever experienced!! Incredliably disappointed in this so called business. Last summer we drove the 55 mile road only to find out that our reservation was accidently not put into the books, so the management said, "pick a date for this summer and we will make it work" This summer they canceled our reservation....

Great people, food , BUT is a little exhausting at first. It's best to be in fairly good shape as it is a rugged trip-- the outstanding wranglers... More
