From the Superior Exit on I-90, take the frontage road on the south side, south. Proceed 1.4 miles to Cedar Creek Road. Turn south again and continue up for 23.6 miles to Missoula Lake. There is a half mile dirt road that goes near the lake. Further up the road is a larger camping area with anther trailhead. Both access the lake.
This is an alpine lake in a classic cirque basin. The Montana/Idaho State Line Divide dominates the scenery to the West. There are lots of camping sites. Rainbow trout in the lake, but hard to catch.
