The Lolo visitor center serves as one of the many historical landmarks off Highway 12, the Lewis & Clark highway. The buildings were a part of the Old Mud Creek ranger station near Lolo Hot Springs in 1923. In 1977 they were moved to Lolo Pass and restored to meet the increased demands of an information center.

The visitor center displays information on the Lewis and Clark journey across the Bitterroot mountains and the 1877 flight of the Nez Perce Indians and tells historical, natural, and general information about the area. The visitor center is open from Memorial Day weekend through September. 7 days a week from 8:30 - 3:30. picnic tables and a public restroom are available.

Winter season is quite busy, too as the Lolo Pass area serves as a major trail head for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The visitor center sells parking permits and carries maps and winter usage information for visitors. It is open from December 1 through March, Friday - Monday, 9:00am - 4:00pm.
