Giant Springs State Park

giant springs After Keri told me how great it was, I finally (FINALLY!) visited Giant Springs State Park today…and now I’m kicking myself for not having visited much sooner! It is the largest freshwater spring in America — neat! — and located on the NE side of Great Falls, just past the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center. It was great: geese a-plenty (not this kind!) (lots of babies!), a few bunnies, some ducks, stunning greenery and trees, amazing springs, and even a fish factory — very cool. And the shortest river in the world, the Roe River — very cute. Walked about a mile or two along the river and took one of the mini-trails with a great view back to the park (still trying to figure out what this plant is). Wow. If you haven’t visited yet, be sure to add it to your list of Places To Go.

  2. I spent the first 20 years of my life in Great Falls. Giant Springs was a favorite place to go in the summer and just a short bike ride away.
    The pix you took is nice but it certainly doesn’t to the beauty of the spring justice. The crystal clear water, the fact that you can see all the gorgeous green plants growing, the fish you sometimes see swimming it in, it’s beyond what a picture can capture. Anyway, thanks for writing about it. It brought back memories. I really want to take a trip back home this summer. Montana has so many peaceful place. There’s no place like home.

  3. Hi Aly — thanks for stopping by and being the very first person to leave a comment here at GreaterFalls.com! And you’re right — the pix that I took are pretty lame, but they were done with my cellphone. If I had known how amazing the park would be, I would have brought a *real* camera!
