.This has long been a favorite spot while in Bigfork. It is listed as Flathead State Park but is also known as Wayfarer State Park. Either way it is a great spot. In addition to the trails and hiking it offers a up front and close to Flathead Lake. The usually wide beach offers good lake side activities and easy... More

This was a nice park for our family to go for a walk. We did some hiking, and sat at the lake and dipped our feet. Very clean and well kept park. We will definitely be coming back here on our next family trip. Very nice scenery!

This campground is right on the lake, many sites with easy lake access. At least one heated restroom with shower. The annoying part of State parks is the reservation system. However, after a mix-up, I visited our local Fish, Wildlife, and Parks office, and they promptly corrected the problem. We would camp at this park again.

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.

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.
