You'll be disappointed. Too choppy to do a lot and too cold. Place was dirty too! The people there were nasty and the water had a lot of gross stuff floating around! The host was exceptionally rude.

Great big lake with excellent fishing and a people on jet skis enjoying it. If you drive along the lake their are farmers with fresh cherry stands all over the place. Very beautiful! There are also little beaches and boat launches every few miles. Enjoy

Couldn't be any more perfect, convenient and beautiful. What a gem! Spent the afternoon kayaking, swimming and building Cairns.

WE drove by on the West side on our way in and the communities all along the way were very pretty. Wonderful views of the lake all the way from Polson.

It is one of the biggest lakes that I have ever seen. Great for boating and fishing. A wonderful place to take children for a weekend or just a day. Lots of activities for every one.

When I go, it is usually uncrowded, and a pleasant place to visit. Nice lake views, some shore fishing.
