It sits on the reservation of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Nation, about 65 miles from Kalispell, Montana and 73 miles from Missoula, Montana in Sanders County, Montana.

Alameda's regularly offers workshops in permaculture and sustainable living, and in music, meditation, and renewable energy. Its two hot water wells provide an ongoing source of the relaxing, lithium-rich mineral waters for which Hot Springs, Montana is noted.

Recent work at Alameda's has focused on developing the geothermal heat potential of its wells as a source for heating greenhouses and growing algae for soil amendments, biofuels, and organic agriculture.
