We brought a picnic and scoped out a table with shade but good lake access. The lake is beautifully clear (and cold), the kids enjoyed swimming and floating. Take water shoes or flip flops, getting into the water over all of those rocks can be painful and tricky. There isn't a beach area really, just enter the water anywhere. We... More

Flathead Lake State Park in Montana is always a beautiful place to visit. The water is clean and the area is serene.

Due to time limitations, I only took some scenic drives around the lake, photographing and purchasing some of the great cherry packs from the orchards that grow on one side of the lake. But even these were well worth it. Next trip, I'll hire a guide to Wild Horse Island on Flathead Lake and charter a fishing excursion.

We camped at the campground at Big Arm on Flathead Lake. Beautiful camping spot right on the lake with a sweet little beach area. Crystal clear water was very inviting. Plan on returning with my grandchildren and some floats to tie on to a tree to enjoy floating around watching the clouds pass by. Large private camp sights. Very friendly... More

We tent camped at the Westshore campsites on Flathead Lake. We liked the fact that there was a lot of shrubs and trees that providing privacy between camp sites. The sites and restrooms were well kept. There were some very nice hiking trails as well as having easy access to the lake. The campground hosts were friendly and helpful. We... More

I live in Kalispell and we have a sailboat at the South Flathead Yacht Club. I can't think of a better place to be than at the lake. It is about 40 miles long and varying depths to just over 300ft. It offers so much to do with all of the islands. Wild Horse Island has just that, wild horses.... More

This is a boater's dream lake - huge and uncrowded. We drove the eastern shore on our way to Glacier - the drive was unhurried and beautiful. We took a break at the park, which is several miles in from the main road - we were the only ones there. Great place to stop for lunch, and take a walk... More

This is a beautiful lake. The crystal clear water is just amazing. You can see way down into the water. The rocks here are really pretty and colorful all over the shore of the lake. We went out in a boat to go over to Wild Horse Island. The weather was chilly, but it was still a great day spent... More

Main reason to visit the area imo. The east side has lots of cherry orchards, various parts of the State park around it. Definitely worth driving around the lake and going in the lake too if it's warm enough.
