Top 8 places to paddle board in montana
Posted On: Jul 11, 2017
We are seeing more and more paddle boards around the area and with our beautiful lakes surrounded by mountains, it makes sense why people are in to it! Here is a list of the top 8 places to paddle board in Montana according to a paddle board enthusiast and ISLE Surf & SUP advocate, Celeste Buck-Heinz!
If you search “Glacier National Park” in Google, this will be the picture that pops up, and we can see why! Lake McDonald is STUNNING and the hub of activity on the west side of Glacier National Park. This lake is the biggest in the park coming in at ten miles long and 472 feet deep.
2.Cliff and wade lakes
These lakes located over by West Yellowstone bring you into a false-Montana realty. The crystal blue water makes it seem like you are paddling on glass and the turquoise colors bring back all the Caribbean vibes. These are two lakes you definitely shouldn't miss!
This may not be the most stunning lake in Montana, but it makes for a great day trip from Bozeman! The reservoir separates the Upper and Lower Madison Rivers and is frequently occupied by swimmers, fly fishers and canoers.
4.RUBY RIVER RESERVOIR
This lake is located in Alder Montana and is a lot like Ennis lake but smaller and much quieter!
5. Fairy lake
Take a short hike up to this stunning green lake! The lake is a short distance from the Fairy Lake Campground and sits at the base of Sacagawea Peak.
6. Glen lake
This lake has multiple names- whether you call it Glen Lake, Bozeman Beach, or East Gallatin Recreation Area, this is a close and convenient spot to take a quick spin on the paddle board! As a heads up, it is frequently pretty crowded (as it is the only “beach” in Bozeman worth going in).
This is a crowded one, but the lake is definitely a beaut! Surrounded by mountains, you are sure to always have something beautiful to look at.
Although this lake is known as the premier stillwater fishing lake in Montana, it is also great for paddle boarding! It is located about 20 minutes west of West Yellowstone and is a popular place for recreational activities!
If you are interested in getting involved in a community of girls who paddle board, join “ladies SUP night” on Facebook and you can get discounted paddle board rentals and hang out with some awesome girls! The next event is TONIGHT at 6:30 meeting at East Gallatin Recreation Area.
