The best way to experience Flathead Lake? Go in it of course!! There is no better place to take your family for a nice afternoon swim in the summer, or to have a family bbq for dinner. The views are amazing. The water can be quite chilly- even during the scorching summer months- Just bring a blanket or chair, and... More

Flathead lake is a beautiful lake that is very large. We like to go to the park and have a picnic. It is a nice well kept place and a fun place to stop and enjoy the beautiful scenery;

We took a boat tour out on the lake. It was lovely but being from the Lake Tahoe area I have to give the beauty to NV/CA. If in this area, it's worth the visit.

I didn't know there was a bigger lake than Tahoe, west of the Mississippi. Hwy 93, going south from Kalispell rounds half the lake. I would mind living in Kalispell.

I was looking for a place near Swan River to launch my boat, found one in this park. It is a well maintained park, the launch and dock are in great shape, the people I saw there were friendly. Free to Montana residents.

Crisp air, great scenery, perfect for a day at the lake. If your just looking to escape city life, this place is so nice. All the town people are friendly, local services downtown. ..doesn't get much better.

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
