Seeley Lake is flanked by the peaks of the Mission and Swan mountain ranges, and is situated along one of the most scenic drives in Montana. Beginning at the charming village of Bigfork on the north and ending at Clearwater Junction on the south, this 91-mile stretch of road is commonly known as the ‘Seeley Swan Highway’ or the ‘Chain of Lakes.’ Running between two majestic mountain ranges and following the Swan and Clearwater rivers past pristine lakes and heavily wooded slopes, Montana Highway 83 provides the most scenic route between Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. Those who love water and the great outdoors will discover excellent camping, boating, fishing, and hiking opportunities at Placid Lake State Park and the Salmon Lake State Park.

Folks visiting Seeley Lake have many outdoor recreational opportunities from which to choose. During winter, a snowmobiler will discover more than 350 miles of groomed snowmobile trails in this area. Seeley Lake hosts a vast network of trails that wind in and around the many local mountain ranges. Guided snowmobile tours are available. Seeley Lake also boasts a world-class Nordic ski trail system. Folks can enjoy the serenity and beauty of this winter wonderland on a horse-drawn sleigh ride or on a guided sled dog ride.

During spring, summer and autumn, folks can enjoy birding, wildlife viewing, fishing, camping, boating, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding and trap shooting. Folks can mountain bike along hundreds of miles of trails and roads. You can also canoe the Clearwater River Canoe Trail. This easy 3.5 mile canoe route along the willow-lined river provides excellent opportunities to see many types of birds, including Bald Eagle. Then take a one-mile walk through old-growth forest to pick up your vehicle at the put-in-point, if you haven't rented a canoe. Experience the mountain vistas with a scenic car ride or with a guided llama or horse pack trip. During hunting season, there are multiple outfitters for guided pack trips. Summer offers a variety of water sports to be enjoyed.
