Babb is a very small town located near the eastern entrance to Glacier National Park in Northwestern Montana.


This is a small community on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation consisting of a post office, an elementary school and two small churches in addition to the listings below.

Get in

Babb is on US highway 89 at the junction to route 3, the north east entrance road to Glacier National Park, 9 miles north of St. Mary and 12 miles south of the US/Canadian border cross from Cardston. Just north of the community is route 17 which takes you over the hills to the border crossing above Waterton.

Get around

As the local dogs do, walk along the side of the highway between the store, motel and restaurant.


The main sight and reason for visiting the area is obviously Glacier National Park. North East of the the town is Chief Mountain, a very prominent peak with almost vertical edges.

The statue of a rodeo cowboy outside the school is an interesting cast sculpture. The old wooden church above the cafe and gas station is also worth a brief look.


Gas station that is manned during the day and can use credit cards 24 hours.
