We actually were very close to the 7 wild horses on the island. Awesome sight! Can only get their by boat, rental or private charter.

“This is Nature, not Disneyland!”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We traveled out by boat for a half-day trip and enjoyed every minute. Great hiking, lots of wildlife. Bring a camera and a field guide, so you can identify all the flowers, plants and birds you'lll see. Pristine and gorgeous.

“Wonderful Place to view wild Bighorn Sheep”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Need a boat to access the island. You can hike over the top from west to east in about 3 hours and see some awesome Mule Deer and Bighorn Sheep.

“One of a kind”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

Absolutely beautiful hikes, and the peace which come from knowing that the wildlife here has no predators. (leave your guns at home) You can get up close to the bighorns.

“So excited to see the horses”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We rented a boat from a local rental agency in Lakeside.
The boat ride over to the island was wonderful-we were able to just pull right up and tie off to a tree. Our children loved exploring the island. We have visited the island multiple times but this was the first time we found the horses grazing in the field. It was a memory that my young niece who loves horses will remember for her lifetime! From the journey on Flathead Lake to exploring the island this is a fun family trip to take.
