Glacier National Park

There are many ways to see the spectacular beauty of outstanding Glacier National Park. Plan to use us as your base camp while you explore the many wonders of the area. One of the most awesome drives in America is along the Going to the Sun Highway. You may take your own car or van over the highway or we can arrange for you to take a trip over the top in one of the historical "red jammer" tour buses that have been rebuilt and went back into operation in the summer of 2002.

For a more personal trip, we can rent you an automobile. While the Going to the Sun Highway is open to personal cars, it is closed to any vehicle over twenty-six feet in length, so leave your motor home or trailer with us while you explore this one of a kind highway. There are more than fifty hiking trails in Glacier National Park. The staff at KOA has hiked most of them and can help you plan any type of hiking adventure from an easy stroll, to hikes of whatever level of difficulty you desire. There are even wheelchair accessible trails in the park. The KOA can provide you with not only information, but will be happy to prepare a lunch for you to take on the trail along with any necessities you may have left at home. We can also arrange a guided trip if you prefer.

Still, there are other ways to enjoy Glacier National Park ranging from airplane or helicopter trips over the park, to a whitewater rafting trip down the outer boundary of the park. We will be happy to arrange any of these activities for you.

Bob Marshall Wilderness Area

As if Glacier National Park wasn't enough, we are situated only a few miles from the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area. Still using the KOA as your base camp, you can hike, fish and explore this world famous wilderness area. In the late summer, people gather from miles around to pick wild huckleberries, a famous specialty of this region. You don't need a license or any special equipment, just help yourself to nature's bounty. We'll be glad to point you in the right direction and explain how to find them.

Flathead National Forest

If you still haven't had enough of nature while hiking in Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness area, we also have a tremendous amount of National Forest land with even more hiking trails. These forests are open to the public and provide a great place to observe wildlife, such as elk, deer, mountain goats and bighorn sheep. You may also come across a flock of wild turkeys or startle a covey of grouse. Sit on a log and watch the pine squirrels search for food or wait for a rabbit to hop in front of you. Listen to the song of many different types of birds and keep an eye open for a glimpse of a bald eagle. These forests are also a great place to search for our much-treasured huckleberries or a quiet stream for some fly-fishing.

Flathead Lake and Whitefish Lake

Flathead Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River. Whitefish Lake is a smaller mountain lake with fewer people located a few miles from the campground. Both of these lakes offer many opportunities for recreation. You can enjoy water skiing, fishing, kayaking, and sailing, use a personal watercraft, or take a pleasure boat trip on either lake. Both lakes are perfect for swimming or relaxing while watching the birds and other wildlife.

Lake Koocanusa Lake Koocanusa was created in 1974 when the Kootenai River was damned just North of Libby, Montana. The road around this lake is a National Forest Service Scenic Byway and makes a great place to take a drive in a recreational vehicle, a car or on a motorcycle.
