Summer Fishing, Rafting & Water Parks
It’s not summer until swimsuits are put into use – and that’s easily done in Montana. Water parks, whitewater rafting excursions, and fly-fishing adventures are rampant in Big Sky Country.
Kids love a waterslide, so why not head to Missoula for a day at Splash Montana Water Park? Open for summer in early June, Splash Montana features three giant waterslides, a lazy river, and The Lake – the Olympic-sized pool offering 50-meter and 25-yard lap lanes.
Grab lunch at the Crazy Creek Café, or let the kids loose in the children’s play area.
If you’re looking to get your feet wet – literally – Montana is home to some of the best fishing spots in the country. Anglers, head to Three Forks – just 30 miles northwest of Bozeman – for great fishing at Missouri Headwaters State Park.
Set at the confluence of the Jefferson, Gallatin, and Madison rivers, the 532-acre Missouri Headwaters State Park is open year-round, and features boat ramps and nearby bait and tackle shops.
The park is also on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places thanks to an 1805 visit by Lewis & Clark, so enjoy casting out for trout at this U.S. National Historic Landmark.
Ready to take your aquatic adventure on to the next level? Visit Gardiner – a gateway city to some of the best whitewater rafting around. Head down the Yellowstone River with local adventure businesses like Yellowstone Raft Company, Montana Whitewater Rafting Company, and Flying Pig Adventure Company.
