A World of Adventure
is at Your Fingertips!

Sun River Canyon, where our lodge is located, is an eastern gateway to the vast Lewis and Clark Forest and the unique Bob Marshall Wilderness Area. The majestic Rocky Mountains suddenly end the otherwise rolling foothill country of eastern Montana. The high rock walls rise up abruptly in majestic grandeur to welcome those who venture into the last of the true mountain wilderness areas.

About Your Hosts

Josh and Niki Carlbom have been the proud purveyors of Sun Canyon Lodge’s various goods and services for the better part of two decades. Josh’s parents, Lee and Sue Carlbom, purchased the establishment in 1983, when Josh was five years old. Niki’s parents, Dan and Shelly Campbell, have been a constant presence for the last twenty years, and an integral part of the Lodge and the community around Sun Canyon. Together now, Josh and Niki operate the bar, restaurant and the outfitting. They have been doing this for sixteen seasons (since 2005), gaining widespread respect for the knowledge of the land and hospitality they provide to their guests. Even with all their combined experience they couldn’t do it alone.
