Montana is spectacular in all seasons. Wild and uncluttered, with fewer than seven people for every square mile, it is truly an outdoor recreation paradise. From hiking and fishing, to horseback riding and rafting, southwest Montana has it all for the outdoor recreation enthusiast. Here are just a few of the many summer recreation opportunities that the Fairmont area has to offer.

Resort On-Site Activities:
Hot Springs Pools - Fairmont is known throughout the northwest for its pools, two Olympic sized swimming pools and 2 mineral soaking pools. One of each located indoors and outdoors. The pools are fed by a virtually unlimited supply of 155 degree natural hot spring water, cooled to various temperatures for comfort and maximum enjoyment.

Slide - If swimming and soaking is not your thing, try the excitement of the 350 foot enclosed water slide. It’s a wet, exhilarating ride into Fairmont’s outdoor pool and you’re guaranteed to make a splash. The waterslide uses the hot springs water and along with the outdoor pool is open year round.

Golf - Fairmont Hot Springs Resort features an on-site, outstanding 6,741 yard, 18-hole, par 72 layout. Fairmont Hot Springs Resort’s golf course was just recently named by Golf Digest as one of the "Best Places to Play".
