About the Area: Big Larch Campground is located on the east shoreline of Seeley Lake, a glacial-formed lake situated between the Swan and Mission Mountain ranges. Seeley Lake is one out of a half-dozen lakes within the valley that make up the ‘Chain of Lakes’—a series of small lakes through which the Clearwater River flows. The campground is located just off Highway 83, approximately one mile north of the town of Seeley Lake, Montana.

Big Larch Campground is a favorite of locals and receives heavy use year-round. It is a great place to enjoy the Lolo National Forest; including 53 campsites, a large day-use beach, a boat ramp, an amphitheater, an interpretive nature trail, and plenty of space for picnicking and recreating on the water.


If you enjoy spending time in mixed-conifer old growth forests, wildlife sightings, picturesque views, and a purpose in your day—this may be the summertime adventure for you!
