Beach camping in Montana guide

Overview

Montana has no shortage of mountains and wide open grasslands but beaches….really? You might be surprised by the extensive beach camping opportunities in Montana. Some are rocky, like the shorelines of Kintla Lake in Glacier National Park and others are soft and sandy like the riverside campsites on the Clark Fork River near Superior. Take a trip to Fort Peck Reservoir in Central Montana and you will find over 1,500 miles of shoreline with road access campgrounds and boat-in only campsites. The same boat-in only style campsites are also found on Canyon Ferry Lake. Flathead Lake is a true gem with local cherry orchards, swimming holes, and state parks offering beach camping. You can essentially scour the maps of Montana to locate an abundance of rivers and lakes with beach camping. Always show up early and book ahead at popular destinations like Flathead Lake to ensure you get the best beachside spots.
