Lighthouses of the United States: Montana

The U.S. state of Montana includes the northern Rocky Mountains and the high plains to the east; the only navigable water is in the form of lakes.

Note: To be listed here, a lighthouse must actually serve as an aid to navigation. This means it must be located on a navigable lake or river and must be lit as a navigational aid at least during the local boating season.
