On December 21st, the Montana Land Board voted unanimously to approve the Somers Beach acquisition by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks to become a new State Park!
The Sliter family of Flathead County has generously committed a $125,000 matching challenge to raise needed funding for long-term operations and maintenance of the site as a State Park.
Want to help complete this one-of-a-kind public access project on Flathead Lake? Help us raise $125,000 by Summer 2021 to make the match!

Montana State Parks Have
been there for you.
Montana is a unique place. We live for the outdoors, we love our heritage, and we have some of the finest landscapes in the world right out our back door. Yet, our state park system lags.
Outdoor recreation is more important than ever. State Parks foster a sense of connection to our great state and provide invaluable mental and physical health benefits.
It is important to keep socially responsible behavior in mind when visiting Montana’s 56 State Parks.
This can include Social distancing when recreating, practicing leave no trace principles, including packing out all waste. This summer, the Montana State Parks Foundation reminds to recreate responsibly at all Montana State Parks
During these unprecedented times we want to encourage you to stay safe, and help us protect our state parks.
Over the past decade, the Sliter family and the Montana State Parks Foundation have been working together to conserve and create public access at their property east of Somers, encompassing almost a half-mile of Flathead Lake shoreline.
This rare property has an expansive sandy beach at low lake levels, and at higher lake levels, its shallow waters provide a safe area for families to swim and recreate. It also has impressive beauty with views of the Swan Mountains and miles of undeveloped shoreline. A state park has been proposed for this spectacular site.
