Come Share Heaven With Us
Our ancestors used to say summer is heaven, winter is hell. With some of the longest, coldest winters anywhere, when the sun finally comes back in earnest, we witness something you have to see to believe: A breathtaking explosion of life, of color, of nature at its wildest and most awe-inspiring. Nature untrampled and unpoisoned by civilization. Animals and plants that can survive only in true wilderness, with no trace of humanity.
You will find things you didn’t know existed. You might even find yourself.
We protect the last surviving sliver of what was, and may never be again. It is heaven and we want to share it with you.

Visitor Information & Links
Most of the 2.3 million annual visitors to Glacier National Park visit the Blackfeet Reservation whether they realize it or not. We wish they would spend more time here, because we love visitors and there is so much to see and do on our 1.5 million acre reservation.
The Blackfeet Reservation is in the foothills of the Rockies, so the average elevation is over 4,000 feet. That means long winters and glorious summers in the 70s, 80s and 90s, with the biggest sky of all in the Big Sky Country. Our landscape and wildlife is magnificent: If Montana is the last, best place, the Blackfeet Reservation is the best of the best, the last of the last.
After the nice weather fades, the millions of visitors we see in the summer disappear and all that is left is a handful of us scattered across vast expanses of windswept prairie and river valleys and pockets of forest, with the rest of us bunched up in our small towns.
Our weather and seasonal visitation is a gift, because it ensures a perpetual cycle of undisturbed renewal that makes our home what it is: Here you find the natural world as it was thousands of years ago, when humans co-existed with nature but did not alter or disturb it. Here you find a combination of flora and fauna you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
The Blackfeet say summer is heaven.
