Enjoy Montana's Great Outdoors

Montana is an outdoor recreationist’s paradise. With 57,346 square miles of public land, including 320 fishing access sites, 9 national forests, 21 national wildlife refuges and 953,574 acres of lakes, reservoirs, rivers and streams there is something for everyone.

Enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing, boating, backpacking, camping, bicycling, rock climbing, and wildlife viewing in the warmer months. In the winter Montanans get outside and enjoy snowmobiling, downhill skiing, and Nordic skiing.

Even Montana’s cities feel like they are in the middle of the outdoors. You are just a step away from being able to experience some outside fun.
