Wayfarer - Flathead Lake State Park

Wayfarer - Flathead Lake State Park

Located near Bigfork on the northeast shore of Flathead Lake, this park is 67 acres and is 2,923 feet in elevation. A mature mixed forest makes this site pleasant for camping and picnicking. From spring to late fall the area abounds in wildflowers. Nature walks over the rocky shoreline to the cliffs are popular with photographers for the excellent view of Flathead Lake. The site offers group day-use, flush and vault toilets, a boat sewage dump, RV dump station, bear resistant storage locker, public phone, grills/fire rings, firewood, picnic tables, trash cans, and drinking water. Camping is limited to 7 days during a 30 day period and no RV/trailer is allowed that's over 50 feet in length. There are 32 sites on the park, 6 of which are for tents only. Day use is $5.00, overnight camping is $15.00 per night.

The nearby town of Bigfork is known for its Summer Playhouse, gift shops, restaurants, and private resorts. Golf courses and museums are located nearby in both Bigfork and Kalispell.

Remember: A bear has been sighted in this area, so know that you're in bear country. Keep all food items and garbage cleaned up and store in a vehicle or camper. Do not store items in a tent or soft-topped vehicles.

How to get there:
Flathead Lake is located between Kalispell and Polson on Highway 93 and 95. Wayfarer is located 0.5 mile south of Bigfork on Montana Highway 35.
