Most Montanans Have No Idea This Massive Lake Is Hiding A Little Island

When we think of island life… or even island visits… Montana is not exactly the first place that comes to mind. However, some of our most massive lakes are hiding some beautiful islands. And while you won’t find palm trees and white sand there, you can always cruise out and enjoy the peace and quiet. Most Montanans don’t even know there’s an island on Lake Koocanusa.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

If you have a boat, check out Yarnell Island on Lake Koocanusa this summer. There’s a pretty good chance you’ll have it all to yourself.
