COVID-19 update 6/28/20

Per Blackfeet Tribal declaration, the eastern border of Glacier National Park will be closed for the 2020 season.   We will not be able to have visitors this season due to closures, and cannot accept reservations.  We are taking reservations for the 2021 season.   We are sorry this year didn’t pan out as we’d hoped.  We look forward to seeing you and your family down the road in 2021.   


From all of us here at Bison Creek, we’d like to say THANK YOU for all the support over the years with our food endeavors.  Moving forward we will no longer be operating as a retail food establishment.  We will continue offering lodging to guests of Glacier as a Bed and Breakfast as we have for generations.  As we get comfortable in our new direction we’re hoping to add a few primitive RV Parking spots and open up a few camp sites as well.  Thank you again for all the support and understanding as we grow, we hope to see you out soon.

Bison Creek Ranch

Bison Creek Ranch is a family owned bed and breakfast located two miles west of East Glacier Park,  Montana.  Tucked amidst the aspens and the pines off of Highway 2, you’ll be sure to find the Schauf Family hard at work.  And rightly so, with three A-Frame Chalets,  four cabins, and The Beaver Lodge,  there’s a lot to be done.  All the properties are available for guests traveling through or visiting Glacier National Park during the months of May through September and include a home cooked breakfast every morning in our dining room.  Though The Restaurant at Bison Creek will no longer be open for food service, the dining room boasts some of the most fantastic views of Glacier National Park and is open for guests to enjoy while visiting.  A delicious home cooked breakfast for our guests staying is included with the stay and is served in our dining room each morning.  Lunch,Dinner and other food options are available in the nearby communities.  We’re happy to point you in the direction to some of our favorites.  With open space and a one of a kind view of Glacier National Park, we plan to ease into offering primitive RV parking spots and camp sites here at Bison Creek.  We are also offering suggestions to some of the walking trails on our own property that our guests are more than welcomed to enjoy.

Big Medicine

For rustic at its best Bison Creek Ranch is the place to come.  Cell phone service is very limited, wireless internet is available in or around the restaurant, T.V.’s do not come standard in every room, and our cabins were built when the railroads were being built.  Known as Gandy Dancers, these cabins housed workers maintaining the railroads back in the 1930’s.  Of course we’ve done some revamping and put some electricity and plumbing in them, but all in all they are still very rustic.  Porches on each cabin and A-Frame provide a comfortable, quite, relaxing view of Glacier National Park while listening to Bison Creek babble in the early months.

Glacier National Park is visible from every angle at Bison Creek.  All of Glacier Park’s glory are a short drive away.  The Eastern entrance to the park located in the  town of St. Mary is approximately 30 miles off, and with a scenic drive over Highway 49 (Looking Glass) it’ll seem like no time at all.  The western entrance to the park located in the town of West Glacier is about 57  miles along Highway 2.  Along this drive you can visit the Goat Lick and watch summer time rafters float down the Middle Fork of the Flathead River.  Visit the Browning, Montana, central hub of the great Blackfeet Nation and partake in the rich history that surrounds us.

For a fun family friendly time whether you are from Montana or visiting from another place, you’ll find Bison Creek Ranch to be a great place to hang your hat for a night or two.   If you have any questions or would like to make reservations, please contact us and we’ll do our best to help you out.
