Frenchtown, MT

About 15 minutes northwest of Missoula, the community of Frenchtown was founded by French Canadian settlers. Situated along the Clark Fork River in a valley called qua elth—meaning state of tranquility—by American Indian inhabitants, Frenchtown is home to Frenchtown State Park, a 5-acre spring-fed lake with a variety of fish. The park is also a fantastic place for beginners to practice kayaking and canoeing.

Insider Tip

Pack a picnic, load up the whole family and spend the day at Frenchtown Pond State Park. If you're staying in Missoula for a few days, it's an easy, short jaunt to Frenchtown.
