Summer is finally here, and we couldn't be more excited about it. Many places across the state are only accessible seasonally, and they're finally starting to open up.
If you're looking for a place to cool off this summer, there are plenty of options in Montana. The state is full of rivers, lakes, and reservoirs that are perfect for swimming. July and August are known as the dog days of summer, and we're about to experience the hottest days of the year.
Summer temperatures in Montana may be mild in comparison to some other states, but it still gets really hot. Luckily, there are a lot of places to beat the heat. Whitefish Lake in northwest Montana was just named one of the top 10 lakes for swimming in America by USA Today. The good news is that you don't have to drive all the way to Whitefish to find a great swimming hole.
Many places in Montana get pretty overcrowded during the summer, so hopefully, you don't mind sharing your private space with other people. There are still some places where you can avoid crowds, but unfortunately, they are few and far between.
This Beautiful Hidden Oasis is the Perfect Place to Cool Off in Montana
One of the best places to cool off during the summer in Montana is Fairy Lake in the Bridger Mountains near Bozeman. The drive takes about an hour, but it's worth it. You'll want to make sure that your vehicle has plenty of clearance because the road can pretty rough during the summer. Due to its elevation, the water in Fairy Lake stays cold all summer long. It's the perfect place to spend a summer day in Montana.
