Description

Glacially carved rock outcrops rise from Flathead Lake to overlooks with spectacular views of the lakeshore and the Swan and Mission Mountains. Considered the most quiet park on Flathead Lake, this site is distinguished by a mature fir, pine, and larch forest. The beach is rocky but you can still swim, boat, and camp here. The park has approximately 2.5 miles of easy to moderate hiking trails offering excellent scenic views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
