Montana Park of the Week: Brush Lake State Park
April 6, 2022
This week's featured State Park is Montana's 50th state park, Brush Lake.
Located near Dagmar, Montana, the only state park in the northeast corner of Montana.
Due to its proximity to Canada, during Prohibition, liquor was easy to come by and kept the Brush Lake Summer Resort in business.
There was also a dance hall! After the Prohibition era, church and scout groups used the lake, but in the years before it became a state park, Brush Lake wasn't the popular destination it once had been.
Today the area where the dance hall once stood on the south side of the lake is now privately held.
