The Splendor of Lake Koocanusa

The Splendor of Lake Koocanusa

There are times in winter when driving along the reservoir between Eureka and Libby on Highway 37 can be absolutely daunting. And there are times in the spring, summer and fall when there isn't a more beautiful sight.

The ninety-mile long Lake Koocanusa reservoir is held back by Libby Dam (which at over four hundred feet tall is impressive and yes, you can arrange to take tours). The dam is located sixteen miles upstream from Libby providing flood protection and hydroelectric power to the region. If you are the kind of individual who enjoys learning new things, you might consider visiting the Libby Dam Visitor Center and taking a tour.

The most recent official statistics for the population in Eureka indicate that we have 1,101 great people living here. We aren't a bustling metropolis by any stretch but we do have a remarkable number of things going on here in the valley. For instance, there is the public library conveniently located on the main street between Montana Market and the Twisted Leash.

Experience the Eureka Riverwalk

Experience the Eureka Riverwalk

The Eureka Riverwalk is a special place in our valley. Meandering along the Tobacco River and easily accessible from the Historical Village, it is a great place to experience nature while still very convenient to town. The Riverwalk started off as a dream by Andy Ivy, long time local physician in the area, and gradually gained momentum as numerous individuals, organizations, the County Commissioners, the town and the two Co-ops worked together to make it a reality.
