Packer Meadows, near Lolo Creek, was called Quamash Meadows by Lewis and Clark because of the camas that grows there. They camped at the lower end of the Meadow. They shot four "pheasants" (Franklin Grouse or foolhens) and one mule deer, according to The Clearwater Story: A History of the Clearwater National Forest.
Packer Meadows was named for a man named Packer who once planned to homestead the area and built a cabin there.
