At 6,425 feet above sea level, averaging 16 feet in depth, Georgetown Lake expands over 3700 acres. It is nestled within three mountain ranges; the Anaconda Pintlers to the South, the Sapphire Range to the West and the Flint Creek Range to the East. The closest municipalities are the historic mining towns of Anaconda, 14 miles to the East and Philipsburg 10 miles to the North.
The Lake, encompassing both Deer Lodge and Granite Counties, was created in 1885 by damming N. Flint Creek. Originally used to produce power, the lake is now primarily used for outdoor recreation and to provide water to down valley ranchers.
Alpine Lake fronted by the soaring Anaconda Pintler Mountain Range. Georgetown Lake has the most prolific fishing in the state with trophy rainbows and brook trout as well as Kokanee salmon. The Lake is just down the hill from Discovery Ski Mountain and is not far from top-rated Jack Nichlaus signature Old Works Gold Course.
