Montana State Parks

Montanans live for the outdoors and the wild and scenic places. Montana’s State Park system provides easy access to get outside, learn and play. Six state parks dot the shoreline around Flathead Lake including Wild Horse Island, a 160 acres park accessible by boat that is still home to a band of wild horses along with other wildlife. All Flathead Lake state parks provide beaches for swimming, rock skipping, stories around a campfire, hiking trails and ranger-led talks and explorations. Just outside downtown Kalispell, spend a day at Lone Pine State Park for picture-perfect scenic vistas overlooking the Flathead Valley into Glacier National Park, interactive displays at the visitor center, and year-round trails and programs.
