Stay at a lake that looks like a postcard from the shores -- and a duck from the air! Duck Lake gets its name from its fowl-like resemblance when viewed from the sky, but the fun water activities are what draws people from far and wide to the area. Located right outside of Glacier National Park, this sacred land of the Blackfeet Nation is an angler's paradise.
There are 29 campsites at Duck Lake Campground, some of which offer electrical hookups and some accommodating tents only. You'll also have the option of staying at one of the 7 cabins located near the lake. Sites start at $25 per night, with a $10 entry charge being issued for day use of the lake. Firewood is available for purchase on the premises, and there is also a first aid station on-site. You'll have to obtain a fishing permit to try your luck out on the water, with prices fluctuating depending on where you are visiting from.
It costs $20 to access the boat ramp, but it's well worth the world-class fishing opportunities that await in the lake, never mind the breathtaking views of Chief Mountain, a landmark sacred to the Blackfeet Nation. Take to the water in a canoe, kayak, or jump right in and enjoy swimming in this beautiful Montana lake. You'll find hiking trails not too far from the camp, so there's no excuse not to take your pooch on a scenic walk while you're here.
Canine campers are allowed at this campground, provided they are kept on-leash at all times. To ensure that four-legged visitors stay welcome here, be sure to clean up any waste your pooch leaves behind and never leave them unattended at a campsite.
If fishing is your forte, you won't want to miss Duck Lake Campground in the beautiful mountains of Montana!
