Bean Lake is an attractive, small lake that sits on the edge of the Rocky Mountain Front near the Scapegoat Wilderness and just a short hop away from the Dearborn River.

Access to the lake is excellent. The Bean Lake Fishing Access Site surrounds half the lake. The other half of the lake is private land that has cattle frequently grazing right down to the shore of the lake.

The primary fish species in the lake are rainbow trout, which are planted each year by the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department.

The lake is quite isolated, lying about fifteen miles away from the small town of Augusta. To get to the lake from Augusta, go south on the Stearns-Augusta road and then follow the signs to Bean Lake.

Free camping is found all along the lake, which is good, since the nearest lodging is quite some distance away. A boat ramp exists at the fishing access site, although both a float tube and a small inflatable kayak can also work well if the winds are not strong.
