Search Missoula Montana

This five-acre spring-fed lake has a maximum depth of about ten feet. There is a diving platform a short swim from the north beach. A variety of fish, such as sunfish, bass, bullhead, book trout and rainbow trout, provide fair catches during the summer and through the ice in winter.

The pond is a favorite place to practice boardsailing, kayaking, canoeing and snorkeling. No pets are allowed at any time. Picnic facilities are provided. Day use fees are charged May through September.

The park is 15 miles west of Missoula, off the Frenchtown exit from Interstate 90, then a mile west on Frontage Road.
