Common Visitor Questions

Hamilton, MT also hosts a small FBO. Our Bitterroot Valley Map and Directions article has more info.
Do we need to rent a car?
Yes, you'll need a vehicle. There's lots of driving to see all that the Bitterroot Valley has to offer.
Any vehicle is fine during the summer months, but winter can be a different story. All wheel drive with winter tires is a good idea from November through April.

Some will argue that it's always a great time to visit the Bitterroot Valley!
Having said that, mid-June through early September combines our most pleasant weather with the most recreational opportunities, activities, and events of the year.
When should we book our lodging?
Book early, popular summer dates go fast. Many people book their lodging 9 to 12 months ahead of June and July stays. Try to book by the end of January if possible.
Will I need a fishing license?
Yes, you'll need a fishing license to fish the Bitterroot River, or the mountain lakes and streams in the area.
