Georgetown Lake, 12 miles to the southeast, is a beautiful year-round recreation spot situated beside the Anaconda - Pintler Scenic Wilderness. Wildlife viewing, ghost towns, the Ghost Town Hall of Fame, blue-ribbon fishing, sapphire hunting, and year-round water sports are awaiting your adventuresome spirit
Philipsburg sits at the center of the Pintler Scenic Route, a 63-mile loop that enters and exits I-90 at exit #154 to the north and exit #208 to the southeast. The scenic beauty is the original Yellowstone Trail that travelers enjoy between Glacier and Yellowstone Parks.
I want to say thank you to all the wonderful people who helped us when we visited. You stayed open late for us one night just so we could look around and the next morning when we made it back to look for sapphires we had the most wonderful conversationsAndria,Texas
