Named for the creek it sits on–which is lined with willows–Willow Creek is a quaint and charming community backed by the beautiful Tobacco Root Mountains. The Willow Creek Art Walk is held the third Fridays of June, July and August and includes the town's art galleries as well as a fire hall full of local artists, family events, music and a farmers market. Since 1977, the Willow Creek Café and Saloon has been serving ribs that are talked about far and wide. Eat up, local Montana style.
Willow Creak is close to Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park, featuring amazing geological formations, and Madison Buffalo Jump State Park, a historical site that vividly demonstrates a hunting technique used by American Indians 2,000 years ago. Interpretive displays explain how bison were stampeded over the cliffs for food and hides.
