Things to Do in the Water Water Play the Montana Way

Water Play the Montana Way

Our waters make up some of the wildest and some of the most serene parts of our region, and there’s no shortage of ways to play in almost any of these sparkling rivers, lakes and streams. It can be as simple as throwing an inner tube in the river upstream of Missoula and floating right into town with a cold drink in your hand, then climbing out and grabbing a bite to eat at a café steps from the river. From sailing, boating or water skiing on Flathead Lake, to kayaking or whitewater rafting Alberton Gorge, to fishing in a quiet, high-alpine glacial-fed lake, we’ve got a lot water for you to make waves in.

Flathead Lake

Polson is a charming lakeshore community at the south end of Flathead Lake. Hike the Mission Mountains and watch wildlife like bison, elk and bighorn sheep just 30 minutes south of town at the National Bison Range.
