Canyon Ferry Lake Diving

First Employee   Feb 02, 2024

Canyon Ferry Reservoir is located approximately 20 miles east of Helena. The dam and visitor center is located at the north end of the lake. From Helena, take Highway 12/287 past East Helena and to the blinking light at the intersection of Highways 12/287 and 284. Turn onto Highway 284. The dam is located approximately 8 miles from this intersection on Highway 284.

You can dive from the shore along the western side of the lake at marked picnic areas.  Boat diving will allow you to explore areas that aren’t reachable from shore- Cemetary Island is a popular dive. Camping is available at various locations around the lake and Kim’s Marina offers RV camping and cabins.
