Our facilities are top notch, as you would expect in an award-winning campground. Challenge the family on the miniature golf course, play basketball or volleyball and swim in our heated pool, which is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

We are centrally located in the Mission Valley, so day trips to Kalispell, Big Fork, Missoula and the National Bison Range are easy. We are on the main route to Glacier National Park, which is also easily accessed from here.

Go on an adventure with area outfitters that offer fishing on the lake, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, or boat tours of Flathead Lake and Wild Horse Island.

National Bison Range

Established in 1908 to protect one of the most important remaining herds of American Buffalo, this 19,000-acre natural grassland is the home of approximately 400 of the great shaggy animals. At the visitor center you will find interpretive exhibits, information about the Range and a map of two, self-guided drives through the Range. In addition to the bison you may see elk, whitetail and mule deer, bighorn sheep, and pronghorn antelope. Allow approximately two hours for the drive.

Kerr Dam

Kerr Dam, completed in 1938, spans the Flathead River six miles downstream from the lake. This privately owned power dam regulates the lake levels to a maximum of 10 feet, between 2,883 feet and 2893 feet above mean sea level. Before the dam, the lake level would peak in June and then slowly drop until the following spring. The lake level is now regulated by a cooperative agreement between flood control, recreation, agriculture, and power interests. The hike down to the dam's observation deck rewards you with scenic views of the river, lake and mountains. You can incorporate this day trip with a day browsing museums and shops in Polson.
