Area residents in the know will tell you that the best sunsets on Flathead Lake can be viewed from Wayfarers State Park. The rocky cliffs along the shoreline offer beautiful vistas of the lake at any time of day. The park is located near the quaint resort town of Bigfork on the northeast shore of Flathead Lake.
The mature mixed forest makes this site very pleasant for camping and picnicking. From spring to late fall, the area abounds in wildflowers. Enjoy camping, boating, and swimming. Nature walks over the rocky shoreline to the cliffs are popular with photographers providing excellent view of Flathead Lake.
