Whitefish City Beach in Montana
There’s more than enough room to roam on Whitefish Lake, which stretches for 7 long miles. This glacial lake is surrounded by pines and rolling mountains, creating a scenic backdrop for your day on the water. Aside from providing plenty of eye-catching scenery, boating, fishing, and swimming are popular activities that can add some fun to your visit to Whitefish Lake.
City Beach is located along the southern end of the lake near the lake’s outflow into Whitefish River. A sandy shoreline and nearby grassy area provide plenty of space for spreading out and enjoying the day lakeside. Bring along a football for a game of catch, build a sandcastle, or simply enjoy the day lounging and swimming in the cool water. Kids and adults alike will enjoy discovering the colorful pebbles that brighten the lake’s bottom and feeding the friendly resident ducks. A roped off area creates a safe designated zone for swimming. Spread a blanket in the sand and enjoy a beachside picnic or set up at one of the park’s public picnic tables. If you end up staying longer than planned and didn’t bring along enough fuel, you can pick something up at Burley’s at Whitefish City Beach.
Aside from the activities available on the beachfront, Paddlefish Sports offers kayak and paddleboard rentals during summer months, perfect for getting away from the crowds to do some exploring. Located right at the beach, rentals can’t get any more convenient and easy to enjoy. Simply rent your gear of choice and head out on the water or book an individual or group stand up paddle boarding lesson with one of the certified instructors. To take it to the next level, consider attending one of their yoga or Pilates on board sessions or SUP fitness workouts!
