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 water recreation opportunities at this 160-acre park include fishing, boating, picnicking and camping. Stocked with rainbow trout, the lake is often good angling for 10 to 15 inch fish. Ackley Lake has 15 campsites, two boat launches, vault toilets, fire rings and grills, and picnic tables. This site has "primitive park" status, therefore no camping fees are required and it is a pack-in, pack out site. There is no potable water on site, so please bring your own. On a warm summer day, enjoy the cool waters of Ackley Lake on Montana's open plains!
