Flathead is the largest natural freshwater lake in the western United States. Twenty eight miles long and 15 miles wide, Flathead Lake is renowned for its fishing. Wild Horse Island, a 2,163 acre wilderness area on the west shore of the lake, is home to bald eagles, bighorn sheep, and wild horses.

On Flathead Lake's Big Arm Bay, this park is a popular jump-off point to Wild Horse Island. Big Arm's long pebble beach is popular with sunbathers and swimmers. Camping under a stand of mature ponderosa pine and juniper is a major attraction. Others include: fishing for lake trout, board sailing, bird watching, scuba diving, swimming and water-skiing. This site is 2,967 feet in elevation and has encompasses 55 acres. The park has both flush and vault toilets, grills/fire rings, firewood, picnic tables, trash cans, drinking water, and seasonal interpretive programs. A golf course and three museums are located in nearby Polson. RV/trailer size is limited to 30 feet in the 29 sites. There are also 6 tent sites available. The Big Arm unit of Flathead Lake State Park now has the latest in circular camping comfort, a 20 feet wide, 10 feet tall yurt.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
November 2 my favorite spot in Montana by Rod from Alberta
We have stayed here many times over the last 20 years and always come back. Good facilities and showers, great swimming, boat launch. Where else can you camp 25 feet from the lakeshore in very private spots? lots of shade, and the staff are friendly w
