AOPA Missoula Seeley Lake Fly-Out, Montana

June 16 & 17, Seeley Lake Airport, Seeley Lake, Montana

Join the Recreational Aviation Foundation for a fly-out to Seeley Lake (23S) for a potato bake, and if you're feeling exceptionally adventurous, camp out and stick around for the Seeley Lake Aviation Foundation pancake breakfast the next morning. For $20 per person, you'll get the traditional RAF potato bake, with all the fixin's, half a sandwich from Lindey's Prime Steak House, and water. Beer available for cash purchase.

If you plan to stick around until Sunday morning, $10 will get you pancakes, eggs, sausage, coffee, and water, to help support the Seeley Lake Aviation Foundation.

Two Ways to Get There!

1. Fly! Plan your route to 23S.  When you land, CTAF (122.9) personnel will be on the ground with radios and "Follow Me" vehicles to assist with parking. Because Seeley Lake is unlighted, be sure to arrive before 9:00 p.m.; after that, the airfield will be closed, no exceptions! Bring your own chocks or tie-downs with ground anchors.

2. Drive! From Missoula, take I-90E toward MT-200E. Take MT-200E and MT-83N to Locust Lane in Seeley Lake. Locust Lane will take you the 1.8 miles to the airport, then park at the end of the road.


There are 4 campsites on-field, but camping is permitted anywhere on the airstrip (except for the runway, of course). Outhouse and portable toilets will be set up with a hand washing station. Tables and chairs will be available for mealtimes, but you may want to bring your own just in case. Best of all, it's FREE!
