You Can Vote To Make Sure This Is The Best Lake

The lake that USA Today nominated is Flathead Lake, which has plenty of reason to be considered the best lake in not just Montana, but America.

For one, it's one of the clearest lakes in America, and it might just have a monster living in it as well.

It's also the largest natural body of freshwater in the western United States.

As of the publication of this article, Flathead Lake is currently ranked #11 out of 20, but we can change that by voting for it as the best lake for water sports from now until the close of voting on June 3rd.
