If you are flying into any of the backcountry airstrips in and around the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, Lincoln can be a convenient stop for resupply and local attractions. Be sure to visit the Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild across Highway 200 from the Ranger Station.

There is short-term hangar space available for a tax deductible donation to the LAF which is an IRS 501c3 Public Charity.

If you are an aviation enthusiast, Lincoln has its own state owned Lincoln Airport (S69) one mile east of Lincoln. The airport was completely reconstructed in 2006. The Lincoln Airport Foundation (LAF) provides volunteer repair and maintenance support to the Montana Aeronautics Division (MAD) including snow removal during the winter after each snow storm. Check NOTAMs for current status.

Tie-downs are available in the aircraft parking apron with tie-down chains hanging on the northern chain link fence. To the east side of the apron is an adjacent outhouse, a bicycle shed, and pilot shelter with picnic table and fire ring.. The shed contains four six adult bicycles and one child bicycle with safety helmets for riding into town as well as a lock box with keys and an agreement for use of the courtesy car. The shed also contains some firewood and tie-down stakes for parking on the grass. There is cell phone coverage at the airport.

There is a pilot campground at the west end of the runway on the Blackfoot River which includes a dedicated tie-down area, an outhouse, and six campsites with tables, fire rings and fire wood. Potable drinking water is available from the hydrant at the northwest corner of the hangar closest to the bicycle shed. Campers can also shorten their walk to town by using the walk through gate in the northern fence across from the campground into the Lincoln Ranger District Compound on the north side of the runway.
