Loved our trip into the Flathead . We spent a week camping and hiking in July. Great place to get away from the crowds in Glacier.

Beautiful Scenery. They day we visited the visitor's center had 3 staff on hand to answer questions and provide camping and local information. Along the drive we got to see a nest of osprey which was a nice sight.
