Looks like it would be a lot of fun in the summer- snack shack, rentals and nice beach. Cold and quiet this time of year.

In the middle of town is this lovely beach with free parking and a great view of the mountains. It is clean and appears to be safe for the family. We enjoyed a couple of hours just talking with locals.

Parking does not abound right near the beach, but there are lots of options to park in the residential streets easily. Absolutely beautiful blue water with great Mountain view’s this is a great beach for a dropby or to stay for several hours & enjoy!

We wanted to picnic by the lake and this was very easy access. There are benches and tables on the lawn above the beach, and that area is shaded, so it was easy to be comfortable here. The bottom here was mostly clay/mud, so it...More

This place is WAY better in the non tourist months. Crowd of folks and I sure do hope that tourists get away from city beach to experience Montana's true beauty. Parking is an issue at times of the day. Beautiful scenery but crowded...

Very rocky beach that you have a hard time walking over. This is a short drive from downtown but you need to be able to climb down a steep set of stairs to get to the beach - many people would not be able to...More

Also good for people watching. Rest rooms and concession building handy. Quiet, nicely landscaped, nice view and a swimming area is roped off. There are paddle boads for rent. Bring your own chair or blanket as there is a shortage of fixed seating. As noted...More
