Lennep is a ghost town and populated place in Meagher County, Montana.

Lennep had a Lutheran church, general store, and post office. Located at the foot of the Castle Mountains, Lennep was once a station on the Old Milwaukee Road. The Lennep Mercantile housed the post office from the time the Mercantile opened in 1914; the post office had first opened in 1903 in a log home across the street. The post office was closed down in 1962.

Today Lennep is an abandoned, with a number of buildings remaining and in reasonable condition, including the old church and store. There are still residences in the vicinity of Lennep, but the townsite itself is unoccupied.
