Always use bedding or sleeping bags!
Pillow cases (No charge) are next to the kitchen in the Hallway;
Please return pillow cases and sheets to hamper after use. Hang towels to dry!
The shower has an electric light, you find the switch to the left of the light fixture above the sink.
Conserve water: We are in a fragile environment: Low groundwater table & flood plain, so please limit your time and water use, be respectful to those after you and use squeegee after each use;
Non-hostel guests pay $ 5; Please put money in fishbowl on desk next to front door, Thanks!
Please recycle: Paper products can go in paper bag; Tin, Aluminum, plastic #1 & #2 in blue recycle bin – please rinse out first; Glass bottles in card board box; there is no glass recycling but it makes life easier, we have to haul all garbage to Columbia Falls; Absolutely no cooked or processed FOOD scraps in compost pail – only coffee, tea and raw, uncooked matters (ask if in doubt). Remember this is bear country!
Another small little gem for the financially challenged is the “green zucchini” or commonly called pickle. A homemade trailer from the ’50s that barely survived the ’95 flood, has drafty windows, no heat and a bed just barely big enough for two has been my home for many summers during my early time and it still enamors the occasional visitor
Clean up after yourself and be respectful to others;
There are 2 guest refrigerators for your use in the kitchen, please mark and date all your food and let us know if you leave foodstuff behind, so it does not go bad.
Please wash all your dishes and wipe counter and stove tops after use; Use blue tubs to do dishes in, fill the rinse tub first so hot water can reach the kitchen, then fill the wash tub (staff will fill the sanitizer tub), it helps to conserve water and energy, Thanks!
How to light propane lamps: Please familiarize yourself with them first and ask for assistance if in doubt: First light match (make sure you have a solid and big flame) hold it to the mantle (make sure only the flame, not the match is touching the mantle) and turn gas on (lever/ knob on side of lamp) For your safety, do not turn gas on first and do not blow light out!

Reservations can be made online, by phone or by email. If you leave me a phone or email message please allow extra time. The online reservation system is the most up-to-date information. Reservations are required in the off-season and advised in summer. For reservations a Credit Card is required, the North Fork Hostel accepts American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
Deposit and Cancellation Policy:
A one night non-refundable is required for all reservations. There are no extra charges if the reservation has to be canceled up to one week before arrival- after that the full amount of the reservation might be due (up to our discretion). No shows and early departures owe the full amount. A cleaning fee is charged if the cabin is not left as found. Thank you for your cooperation.
The North Fork Hostel & Inn is located on the western edge of Glacier National Park, 1/4 mile (1/2 kilometer) southeast of the Polebridge Mercantile at the end of Beaver Drive (follow the signs). Taking Camas Creek Road through Glacier Park avoids a rough section of the North Fork Road. The North Fork Road north from Columbia Falls to Polebridge is route 486, a gravel road with sections of pavement. Try to arrive during daytime to appreciate the views and to locate the North Fork Hostel & Inn easily.
The Square Peg Ranch is about 500 yards north of the Polebridge intersections on the left side, but stop at the hostel first and pick up your key.
