Pitch your tent in the woods.  A short walk provides a look across the massive Flathead Lake north to snow capped Glacier National Park 70 miles away.   Hike or bike from your campsite, or hop in your car and sight see around the lake on your way to Glacier.  If you chose to stay close, explore right from the campsite.  Hike one of the many trails minutes from this location.

Pitch your tent in the woods.  A short walk provides a look across the massive Flathead Lake north to snow capped Glacier National Park 70 miles away.   Hike or bike from your campsite, or hop in your car and sight see around the lake on your way to Glacier.  If you chose to stay close, explore right from the campsite.  Hike one of the many trails minutes from this location.  In the summer, lupine, balsam flowers, Indian paint brush carpet the area.  All this and the town of Polson is just 10 minutes away. 

Lake, swimming, boat access and parks nearby. We can direct you to local swimming areas as well as semi-private swimming holes. Great area for miles and miles of road and mountain biking.  Due to our current situation regarding covid-19 we are reducing our camp spaces and dates of availability.

Convenient spot to headquarter for a glacier trip. We had a misunderstanding with other reservations and Craig was gracious enough to work with us to make sure we had a place to stay. Private site plenty big enough for my family and dogs.
