Wade Lake Resort, five cabins and a lodge, lies sheltered in a forested canyon on Wade Lake among firs, pines, and aspens at 6,300 feet. Along with Cliff Lake, located a quarter mile away, these lakes are part of the Hidden Lake chain of lakes in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. The only other development on either lake is a Forest Service campground.

Designated as a Montana Wildlife Viewing Site, the lakes are an exceptional area. Some residents include: moose, deer, antelope, black bear, otter, beaver, and bobcat. Both the serious and casual birder will be astounded by the quantity and quality of birding opportunities. Bald eagles and osprey nest on the lakes. Watch the branches of old growth firs for great gray owls or look to the skies, shorelines, and lakes to see sandhill cranes, hawks, and trumpeter swans. All seasons are good for viewing, but in winter Wade Lake stays partially ice-free, providing excellent habitat for wildlife and waterfowl. Winter guests are also privileged to view hundreds of spawning rainbow trout in the stream below the resort.

In the summer enjoy fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, photography, or the area's other attractions and activities.

In winter enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, wildlife viewing, and photography.

We provide gear and food shuttle, from the parking area off US Highway 287, while you ski the trail in.

If you're thinking of a winter trip to the Yellowstone area and would like the experience of a remote location, the assurance of great skiing in a Montana forest, and the comfort of your own cabin, then think of us. 30 km of groomed ski trails on Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. Fifteen kilometers of trail are rated easiest, and 20 kilometers are rated more difficult. Trails are groomed on a weekly basis. Several routes of set track provide skiers with touring of Cliff and Wade Lakes and scenic vistas of the area. Trail map available.

Directions: Wade Lake Resort is located thirty miles northwest of West Yellowstone near Quake Lake. Take the well-marked county road turn-off from US Highway 287. The turn off for the county road is just under a mile from the Highway 87 junction. The resort is 6 miles.
