Spring Meadow Lake
Spring Meadow Lake State Park is located on the western edge of Helena. It is an urban day-use park and is a popular spot for family afternoons of swimming, sunbathing, fishing, birdwatching, and having fun.
The park features new picnic shelters and a pavilion for group use. You can book the pavilion for the day online, or if you would like to reserve the pavilion for less than a full day, please call the park manager directly at 406-495-3270.
In addition to the water and beach area, the park offers an .8 mile, self-guided nature trail that circles the lake.
There is no lifeguard on duty at Spring Meadow State Park. Visitors swim at their own risk. Complimentary life jackets, ranging in size from infant to adult, are available to use while visiting Spring Meadow Lake from Memorial day through Labor day. Play it safe when recreating near water.
NO dogs allowed in the park between April 15 - October 15.
The park is home to a variety of birds, turtles and other wildlife and trout, bass and sunfish have been introduced into its waters. There is a fishing dock that is ADA accessible.
