LET'S HEAR IT FOR MONTANA'S NEWEST

STATE PARK

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.

Montana’s newest state park has been approved for this spectacular site.

On April 2021, the Montana Legislature finally approved House Bill 5, which provides the authority needed for Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks to acquire Somers Beach.

And, with this approval, The Sliter family 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.

... AND YOU CAN HELP!

The Somers Beach State Park project needs people like you; passionate and solution-oriented people willing to be a part of positive change.

Without your help, this new state park will face challenges securing the funds to guarantee sustainable operations.

It's up to us as Montanans and State Parks lovers to help secure access to our existing and new state parks' public lands and operations.
