The best way to experience Flathead Lake is on a boat. Don’t have a boat? No worries! You can still enjoy the lake life in Bigfork. Rent a family boat, deck boat, or pontoon or join a guided boat tour to explore Flathead Lake, Echo Lake, Wild Horse Island, and more.
The Flathead Valley is a popular destination for boating enthusiasts of all levels. With its breathtaking lakes, rivers, and streams, visitors can engage in a wide range of water-based activities, including fishing, watersports, or simply soaking up the stunning scenery.
Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake in the western United States, is a must-visit destination for boaters.
It’s important to note the “Clean, Drain, Dry” campaign in Montana, which aims to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species in the state’s waterways, including Flathead Lake. Non-native plants, animals, and pathogens can harm native ecosystems, disrupt recreational activities, and damage infrastructure. Remember to inspect, clean, drain, and dry all boats, trailers, and gear before launching in any body of water to help prevent the spread of invasive species.
