Things To Do

Overview

From the air, Brush Lake looks like a piece of turquoise tossed on a sand dune. The intense blue of the lake is entirely out of place in the caramel-colored monotony of wheat stubble that marches to all horizons in this northeastern corner of Montana. From the ground, 280-acre Brush Lake is no less striking. Due to the mineral make-up of this lake, there are no fish. A day-use area is located on the northeast portion of the lake. This area includes a parking area, boat ramp and dock, vault toilet, picnic tables, fire rings and a designated swimming area. In an area of the state where the glaciated landscape is pocked with shallow, alkaline prairie potholes, Brush is a deep, clear lake with white, sandy beaches surrounded by grass fields and linear stands of spring wheat. Its source is a huge spring that emanates from an underground aquifer.
