Lake Como


  • Lake
Constructed in the early 20th century, Lake Como serves as a late season source of irrigation for the Bitterroot Valley. Lake Como Recreation Area is an ideal spot for water and land-based activities, surrounded by truly breathtaking mountain scenery within Bitterroot National Forest. Swim at the beach area or board your watercraft at the boat launch and fish, motor, or paddle the lake. Stay overnight at one of the campgrounds and then head out onto the surrounding trails on foot, horseback, bicycle or motorized vehicle. Campgrounds are generally open from late May through early September and include a variety of amenities. A horse campground is also located here.

Lake Como Recreation Passes are $5 per vehicle per day or $30 for the season.
