Outdoor Recreation Education

Outdoor recreation is synonymous with Montana — the state is an outdoor recreationist's paradise. Montana has extraordinary natural assets: 57,346 square miles of public land, including 320 fishing access sites, 50 state parks, 6 national parks and monuments, the Lewis & Clark and Nez Perce National Historic Trails, 9 national forests, 21 national wildlife refuges and 953,574 acres of lakes, reservoirs, rivers and streams. Additionally, many of Montana's private lands are open for public recreation—for hunting, fishing, hiking, 4-wheeling, skiing and snowmobiling. To help you get started on your next adventure, FWP offers educational information about such recreational activities as boating, floating, kayaking, snowmobiling, and trail riding.
