Canoeing at Foy’s Lake Kalispell MT
Foy’s Lake is located in Kalispell Montana near the entrance to Lone Pine Park west of town. It’s a small lake, only about a mile long and 1/2 mile wide, covering 241 acres. It’s stocked with fish on a regular basis. Foy’s Lake is shallow towards the edges and gets to about 120′ deep in the middle.
That makes it perfect for exploring by canoe.
To get into the water, you can use the boat ramp to back down, or you could park in the parking lot and walk the canoe down; it’s not a long walk. If you decide to canoe around the edges of the lake in a big circle, just pick a direction and get started. There are plenty of homes around the outside that you could check out, or you could keep an eye out for the turtles or jumping fish. If you do a nice leisurely trip around the perimeter, it will take about an hour to finish up. And if you like to fish, bring your equipment! In 2022, 20K rainbow trout, 25K Kokanee and 50K Graylings were added.
The lake also has some docks and a swimming area. In the center is an island which would be great to explore, but it is privately owned (and was just sold recently) and therefore, can only be viewed from the water.
To get you in the mood, check out this short video made in mid-August 2022 as we paddled around the area.
If you go, have a great time and enjoy!
