The town of Seeley Lake, nestled in the Rocky Mountains between the Swan and Mission Mountain ranges, is home to a variety of residents. With a strong representation of retirees, the population of approximately 2,500 is rounded out with individuals representing the wood products, Forest Service, education and tourism industries.
Seeley Lake is the main attraction to the area, as part of the “Chain-of-Lakes” beginning with Rainy Lake to the north, and ending with Salmon Lake to the south. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, boating and more, with ample opportunities for wildlife viewing. Miles of groomed trails attract cross-country skiers, snowshoe enthusiasts, dogsled runners, and snowmobilers in the winter and hikers and bikers during the summer.
The Seeley Lake Area Chamber of Commerce promotes local business through three annual events: The Winterfest celebration in January, the 4th of July celebrations, and the Tamarack/Brewfest in the fall. Other active groups include the Seeley Lake Lions Club, 4-H Trailblazers, Quiltmakers of the Tamaracks and Veterans and Families of Seeley Lake, to name a few.
