St Ignatius is nestled in the heart of the Flathead Indian Reservation, at the foot of the Mission Mountains.  St Ignatius, also called Mission, is home of the St. Ignatius Mission built in the early 1890's. Just over 800 people call Mission home (according to the 2010 census).

When visiting Mission you can explore our cozy main street, an Amish community just north of town, The National Bison Range Wildlife Refuge, just west of town and of course the Mission Mountains. Be sure and bring your camera, our daily view is the envy of most!  The Mission Mountains offer hiking, camping, or if you would rather play on water consider floating the Flathead River or fish in the lake behind Mission Dam, McDonald Lake or St Mary's Lake.  Tribal permits are required.  (Link to come)

Our big event is the Good Old Days Celebration held in July.  We look forward to seeing you there!

We have a live webcam which shares the view of the Mission Mountains and a daily time lapse.  You are welcome to see them here any time or join us daily for pictures of our Mountains on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/stignatiusmontana.
