Visited this Park as I was traveling to Glacier. The lake is the largest lake west of the Mississippi. Lots of boating and fishing. Surrounded by cherry orchards. Natural beauty. Camping nearby.

This park is made up of four separate units; Big Arm state park on the south weat, west side on the North west, Yellow Bay on the north east, and Finly Point in the south east portion of the lake. All parks provide camping (only tent camping at Yelow Bay) and boat ramps. These parks also have day use sites.... More

This now tops my list of beautiful places on this planet. Clearest of all waters, large body of water, and mountains in the rear. Be sure to bring your camera. Travel all around the lake and be sure to get out and take in the towns. Great shopping areas too. Yet areas of serenity and peace too.

Beautiful views around the lake.I heard there is a restaurant with good lake views in Bigfork. We went by a winery, but did not partake for 5.00 dollars if you bought a 35.00 bottle of wine. Not for us. The place was small and just had samples. Nothing to see.

Not a waste of your taxpayer dollars. This park is on Flathead Lake. Crystal clear waters. Beautiful trees and great boat launching facilities. Park hosts keep up with the restrooms and the grounds are clean. Great family camping place...
