Morning Star Community is a resident-owned manufactured home community in Kalispell, Mont. Morning Star Community is conveniently located just one mile from downtown Kalispell, and eight miles from Flathead Lake. Our ideal setting allows for easy access to Highway 93 South and we can be at the gates of Glacier National Park in 45 minutes. We are a friendly neighborhood for people who love outdoor activities and living in a small mountain town.
Lone Pine State Park is a short 15 minute drive, where we enjoy hiking and afternoon picnics. On a clear day, the views of Flathead Lake, Big Mountain and the Jewel Basin are spectacular. Just five miles from Flathead Valley Community College, we are centrally located for easy access to all Kalispell has to offer.
Morning Star is owned by the Community Members who live here – we are a resident-owned community (ROC).

We own it
The Member homeowners of Morning Star control the rent and make the rules. On June 7, 2017, the ROC purchased the land and infrastructure, such as the roads and water lines. Now, a democratically elected Board of Directors manages the business of running Morning Star Community. Every Member household in the community has a say in who sits on the Board, how we spend our money, the annual budget, and whether we make changes to the rent.
We’re also part of a national network of more than 200 ROCs just like us. That membership provides us with access to expert coaching on how to run our ROC, leadership development and training, communication with dozens of community leaders who face many of the same issues we do, and more. Life in Morning Star is truly different than in a commercially owned community – we invite you to find out firsthand how that difference makes living here so much better.
