    Best way I have found in finding hotels is using Google Maps. Enter Montana Expo Park and then click on the "nearby" and select hotels.

    Question How far will you "ride-in"... your last travel day to the Great Falls Rally site?

    ...I'm looking at some options for a Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon arrival, by about 3pm.

    It would be great, to have the route coincide with a nice Montana Hot Springs opportunity from the day/night before arriving at the ExpoPark.

    Anyone care to share any "hidden gems"... hot springs, campgrounds or other lodging within about 200 - 250 miles that you would recommend?

    Chico Hot Springs, Pray, MT in Paradise Valley about 45 miles north of Gardiner and the north gate of Yellowstone NP. Beautiful setting, good hot spring and an absolutely fantastic restaurant. We spend our anniversary there every April and ride in Yellowstone before the mobs arrive. After Chico you can ride to GF on Hwy 89 the entire way, 187 miles. A great ride through some high valleys and the Little Belt Mountains.

    Chico is not cheap and you will need reservations.

    +1 on Chico Hot Springs Resort. It may be a bit more than a motel elsewhere but a LOT less than staying IN Yellowstone or Grand Tetons. Also, that time of year you can land some decent rates in Gardener. (again "decent rates" is relative since you are at the gate or Yellowstone)

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the recommendations fellows. Chico seems like a good choice if arriving from the south. And a Bozeman area offering by the KOA isn't bad either.

    I even stumbled on a "high line" offering just east of Malta, Sleeping Buffalo Hot Springs... with campground.

    My wife and I camped there back in 1984, after a rough day in which a car squeezed us off the road coming into Glasgow, MT—fortunately with no damage to the new bike. It was a very nice hot springs and campground and the hot soak was great. Not so much the local hooligans who pulled the stakes from our tent in the middle of the night.
    But yes, a nice place to soak and sleep. Enjoy!

    Best,
