This park is located a little ways out of town. It has always been uncrowded and quiet when I've visited. The lakeshore is rocky and there are big rocks so you can sit and watch the water.

We drove round Flathead lake and stopped for a drink at the Sitting Duck, where the people on boats moored in and came in for a drink pleasant to sit and watch and we had some local beers

We visited the Flathead area and were shocked when we read about the size of the lake. It was beautiful. We tried to take a cruise, but had just missed the last boat going out. We can see why so many people come there for the summer.

Flathead Lake is a place we have been told we needed to visit, but it seemed so far away from California and besides we have Lake Tahoe. But, when we drove around Flathead Lake we discovered several things. It is the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, only smaller than the Great Lakes. The rim is fairly free of... More

what a beautiful lake. The orchards all along the Eastern shore were a surprise. It was cherry and huckleberry season with farm stands everywhere. Had lunch at the marina in the town of Lakeside. A treat watching boats arrive and depart

We came to West Shore State Park during our recent stay at Kalispell, looking for a place that would allow us to take our dog for a more extended walk. West Shore fit the bill as there was a reasonable trail from the scenic viewpoint parking. Additionally the views from the shore were quite nice. Recommended.

The views are always different each and everyday. It's amazing how it never looks the same way twice.

We rented a boat in Polson and went to Wild Horse island as well as a tour of the lake. This is a big lake and you can easily lose your bearings out in a boat for the first time. I like to use landmarks when I mover from place to place, so I can find my way back to... More

This was our first trip to Montana and we camped along Flathead Lake while our son was camping with his Boy Scout troop at Melita Island, which is on the lake. We stayed the week at Big Arm State Park, which is one of the Flathead Lake State Park campgrounds on the SW corner of the lake. Most of the... More
