Ackley Lake is nestled right in the heart of Montana’s Big Sky Country. One glimpse and you’ll easily understand how the beautiful views of the surrounding Little Belt and Snowy Mountains and rich agricultural land captured the heart of the legendary Western artist, Charlie Russell, a hundred years ago.

 

Today, the diverse recreation opportunities at this 290-acre park include fishing, boating, swimming, birdwatching, picnicking, and camping. Stocked with rainbow trout and tiger muskie, the lake often provides good angling. Ackley Lake has 26 first-come first-served, rustic (no electricity, water or dump services) campsites and two boat launches. 

 

On a warm summer day, enjoy the cool waters of Ackley Lake on Montana’s open plains!
