Flathead Lake State Park Has Some Of The Clearest Water In Montana

We may not have ocean beaches here in Montana, but we have something even better: the legendary Flathead Lake. The clarity of this massive lake’s water is world-renowned, a trait we attribute to its low nutrient levels (phosphorus and nitrogen), which leads to a lack of algae. Whatever the reason, the lake is amazing, and you can enjoy it to the fullest at Flathead Lake State Park.
