Large in landmass but small in population, Montana has a relatively active seaplane community for its size. Though Glacier National Park prohibits seaplane operations there are many destinations close by that boast dramatic views and plenty of natural beauty. Whether camping along Hungry Horse Reservoir or splashing down in the crystal clear water of Flathead Lake, you’ll quickly come to understand why the state is called Big Sky Country. Montana is still refreshingly wild with a small town mindset and naturally lends itself to being seaplane friendly. It encounters few advocacy issues and holds some of the most pristine water in the country within its borders.
