We love this Lake. It's scenery is absolutely gorgeous. There are not too many places to stop and Beach but when you find them it's definitely a gem. You must go through the gates of the mountain when you visit.

Mountains, Lakes, Big Sky, Huge Sun! What more can a person ask for? This is a must top by and if the weather permits, bring a picnic and settle in for the afternoon. Lovely.

Nice place to set out for the day and check out the scenery along the Missouri River and the lake. Wildlife is abundant and is a nice place to take your camera and capture the beauty of Montana.

This has to be the prettiest lake this side of the Rockies. Great fishing and camping and the views are spectacular. There are two campgrounds that are usually pretty busy. Lewis and Clark traveled through here July 19, 1805.

You didn't say whether you were planning a weekend, Friday-Sunday. Ok, it slows down, but if you plan a weekend go real early. However, if it's full you can go down about 7 miles to Log Gulch it can be as nice. Having a boat... More
