This is a boater's dream lake - huge and uncrowded. We drove the eastern shore on our way to Glacier - the drive was unhurried and beautiful. We took a break at the park, which is several miles in from the main road - we were the only ones there. Great place to stop for lunch, and take a walk on the shoreline - many, many stones for the rock collector.

This is a beautiful lake. The crystal clear water is just amazing. You can see way down into the water. The rocks here are really pretty and colorful all over the shore of the lake. We went out in a boat to go over to Wild Horse Island. The weather was chilly, but it was still a great day spent here. If you are driving by the lake, you definitely want to take the West road that hugs the lake. You can see the lake almost the entire time you are traveling. We came back south on the East side. You really don't see anything on that side. We would have definitely spent more time here if we would have had more days!

Main reason to visit the area imo. The east side has lots of cherry orchards, various parts of the State park around it. Definitely worth driving around the lake and going in the lake too if it's warm enough.

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
