Seeley Lake, Montana
3134 Highway 83
The Crown Jewel Of The Continent
When Jasper B. Seely (correct spelling) came to the Clearwater Valley near the end of the 19th century, he never imagined that the small cabin he erected next to the lake and the town that would follow would bear his family name. Now, the town of Seeley Lake and the lake itself are a dedication to his family and a monument to one of Montana's most spectacular areas.
Just 85 miles southeast of Kalispell and 50 miles northeast of Missoula, Seeley Lake is a destination spot like none other. The 1,025 acre lake is a huge attraction for people who want to boat, ski, fish and recreate. In the summer, the small town that boasts a population of 2000, increases to almost twice that size during the raging summer months.
The surrounding area is ringed by awe inspiring mountain ranges and pristine wilderness. The Bob Marshall Wilderness and the Mission Mountain Wilderness flank both sides of Seeley Lake giving way to over a million acres of roadless back-country. Coupled with the Seeley Swan Chain of Lakes connected together by the Clearwater and Swan Rivers and you have a special place with a lot to offer.
Beyond the usual outdoor activities you will also find other fun things to do in and around town. Seeley Lake has unique shops that supply crafts and daily essentials. There are several festivals throughout the year including the Loon and Fish Festival and the Tamarack Festival. If you happen to be in town during the 4th of July, you'll experience a wonderful fireworks display over the lake. You can also find horseback riding and downhill skiing just around the corner. Whether you rent a canoe or go for a hike, Seeley Lake is a place that will keep you busy.
