The Missoula Field Office manages nearly 150,000 acres of public lands and more than 200,000 acres of mineral estate within Granite, Missoula, Lincoln, Flathead, Sanders, Mineral, Lake, Ravalli and Powell counties in western Montana. The area is rich in history, timber, and mineral resources.

Garnet Ghost Town east of Missoula is popular with tourists in the summer and with winter recreation enthusiasts in the winter months. It is the highlight of the Garnet Range Back Country Byway. The Blackfoot River corridor provides world-class opportunities for anglers, floaters, camping, and wildlife viewing.

Big game hunting, hiking, fishing, camping, and wildlife viewing are popular activities within the Missoula Field Office and the nearby Lolo and Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forests. When you come to Montana, visit lands managed by the Missoula Field Office and enjoy America’s public lands!
