Nothin' like gettin' in the holiday spirit and hangin' out with some of your favorites (not your extended family) like Santa Claus and his Pack Team, Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl! So take a break from all that Black Friday weekend shopping and plan ahead to hit-up the Old-Fashioned Forest Service Christmas!

Here are some of the fun-filled activities you can partake in:

  •  Meet and Greet with Santa and his Pack Mules (courtesy of Smoke Elser and Wilderness Outfitters)
  • Photo opps with Santa and his favorite "Helpers" Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl from the USFS
  • Christmas stories and songs around the campfire featuring Neil Lewing of Port Polson Players (courtesy of Humanities Montana)
  • Holiday shopping at the Bungalow Ranger Station -- check those presents off your Christmas list!
  • Candy Cane Hunt
  • Indulging in delicious hot chocolate and festive cookies on the Front Porch
  • Visit with Bill Moore as he shares his father Bud Moore's book, "The Lochsa Story," as well as his documentary, "Bud's Place."
