Recreation - With an abundance of trails, lakes, rivers, public lands, open spaces, and incredible scenery, Montana is truly a place for playing, exploring, and venturing in the great outdoors. Recreational opportunities are too numerous to mention in one web site, so we’ve tried to provide you with enough information on these pages to get you started planning your next adventure.

Climate - The climate in Montana varies with the terrain. The western region of the state receives storm systems from the Pacific Ocean, which tend to be temperate. Because of its mountainous topography the region receives significant snowfall amounts, with winter temperatures usually below freezing. Summer in this region is mild with high temperatures reaching 85 degrees F. Nights are cool in the mountains during the summer. Bring warm layers, hats and gloves if camping. High country roads usually do not open until mid to late June, due to snow accumulation. Thunderstorms are a daily occurrence in June, July and August, so be prepared for rain in the mountains.

Location - Driving maps and directions to each park, along with photography and topo maps are availble on the individual pages describing the Montana parks.
