Summer in Montana is the best—the warm weather and sunshine creates an ideal environment for exploring the great outdoors. Nothing cools you off on a hot summer day like a refreshing dip in a swimming hole, and our state has plenty of places to jump in. We mean it.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Of course, the best Montana swimming holes are often in secluded “off the grid” places. So go exploring this summer and find some new spots to cool off.
