During the summer months, an outdoor public swimming pool is open for the enjoyment of families. The pool, located in the town’s park in the center of town, welcomes guests June through August.

Community tennis courts are also located in the park and are open to those who love the game on a first-come, first-served basis.

Teton County is home to one of Montana’s premier bird-watching locations, the Freezout Lake Wildlife Management Area located minutes from Fairfield. The management area includes a number of interconnecting lakes and ponds that features year-around use by waterfowl. Freezout Lake is a birders’ paradise where as many as 300,000 snow geese and 10,000 tundra swans gather in March on their annual migratory route.

The Lewis and Clark National Forest located west of Fairfield in the Rocky Mountains offers a wide variety of hiking opportunities. The terrain includes trails featuring interesting scenery and easy access during major-use seasons. There are opportunities available for short day hikes, easy peak scrambles and extended backpacking trips.

If you enjoy being in the outdoors and fishing, the region provides opportunities on rivers, streams as well as ponds, lakes and reservoirs. Hunting is a popular and plentiful sport in Russell Country and hunters will have elk, whitetail and mule deer, antelope, upland game birds, and waterfowl from which to choose.

Fairfield is a perfect halfway stop for those travelling from the center of the state with a destination of Glacier National Park.
