Ashley Lake is nestled in an elevated basin at an elevation of about 3,950 feet only a few miles west of Kalispell, MT as the bird flies, but by road about 13 miles off of Hwy 2 on Ashley Lake Rd. The lake is about 2,850 acres in surface area (about 6 miles long and 2 miles wide) with an average depth of 89 feet and a maximum depth of 225 feet.
The forested shoreline property of Ashley Lake is dotted with cabins and upscale homes and would be considered mostly developed real estate although there are still a fair number of unimproved lots for sale. There is generally only a handful of homes or property for sale at any one time. Development on Ashley Lake is guided by the Ashley Lake Neighborhood Plan (zoning) adopted in 1997.
At certain times of the day the Ashley Lake glimmers with an emerald colored hue that is quite beautiful and is credited to a unique sediment from the incoming creek. Recreational boating includes water skiing, quiet canoeing and fishing. Ashley Lake has kokanee salmon, cutthroat, yellow perch and rainbow-cutthroat hybrid.
