Placid Lake State Park

Placid Lake

Placid Lake is a heavily forested park that lies on a gem-like mountain lake. Placid Lake was carved out by glaciers during the ice age, and is located on a branch of the spectacular Clearwater River. Placid Lake is known for its good trout fishing and smooth water. Recreation has brought visitors to Placid Lake for nearly 90 years. A number of facilities are provided for camping, picnicking, boating and swimming.

Interpretive panels give an account of the early-day logging practices attested to by the massive western larch stumps in the area. The park is 32 acres in size and 4,100 feet in elevation. There are 40 sites that offer flush toilets, a group—use area, grills, fire rings, firewood, picnic tables, trash cans, and drinking water. A golf course is located nearby in Seeley.

How To Find It!

Placid Lake State Park is located 3 miles south of Seeley Lake on Montana 83, then 3 miles west on the county road.
