Surrounded by mountains and forest, Bigfork hugs the short Bigfork Bay on Flathead Lake. Formed millions of years ago by glacial action, the clear, cold waters of the lake offer hundreds of acres of watery playground and provide the perfect climate for growing the famous Flathead Cherries. Bigfork is known for fine art, fine dining and great theater. Its world-class art galleries are the reason that the community
was designated as “One of the 100 Best Small Art Towns in the West.” The Bigfork Summer Playhouse has been recognized for more than 50 years as one of the northwest’s finest repertory theaters. Bigfork’s restaurants offer menus that range from gourmet dining to casual burgers and brats with a view of the lake. And accommodations include everything from cozy B&B’s to lodges and resorts.
