LOCAL AREA ATTRACTIONS:
Whitefish KOA is located in Western Montana in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and right next door to Glacier National Park. This area is famous for its pure mountain lakes and streams, soaring mountains, healthy, native forests, and abundant wildlife.
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK
There are many ways to witness the spectacular beauty of Glacier Park, the "Crown of the Continent." Use us as your base camp while you explore its many wonders.
One of the most impressive scenic drives in America is along the Going to the Sun Highway. You may take your own car over the highway, or we can rent you a car, or arrange for you to take the trip in one of Glacier's historic “red jammer” tour buses equipped with canvas, roll-back roofs.
Going to the Sun Highway is a National Historic Landmark, constructed in 1932. Because of its narrowness and steep, winding, hairpin curves, it is closed to any vehicle over twenty six feet in length. 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. Our KOA staff has hiked most of them and can help you plan your hiking adventure whether you are looking for an easy stroll or a high mountain challenge. (There are even wheelchair accessible trails in the park.)
We can arrange for you to enjoy a guided tour of Glacier Park if you prefer. There are also many man made ways to enjoy the park ranging from airplane or helicopter trips tours to a white water rafting trip down a fork of the Flathead River which forms an outer boundary of the park. We will be happy to arrange any of these activities for you.
In addition to information and tour arrangements, Whitefish KOA can provide you with a lunch to take on the trail, and any necessities you may have left at home.
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. With Whitefish KOA as your base camp you can hike, fish and explore this world famous wilderness. In 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 what you seek.
FLATHEAD NATIONAL FOREST
If you are looking for still more quality time with nature, Western Montana is home to a tremendous amount of National Forest land with a range of first rate hiking trails. These forests are open to the public and provide a great place to observe wildlife ranging from elk and deer to mountain goats and bighorn sheep. You may 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 songs of many different types of birds, and keep an eye open for a glimpse of a bald eagle. The 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 and is still surprisingly clean considering the recent unprecedented growth of our local human population. Whitefish Lake is a smaller mountain lake of icy cold waters located only 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 are perfect for swimming or relaxing while watching the birds and other wildlife.
This lake 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 provides opportunity for a beautiful day trip whether taken in a Recreational Vehicle, car, or on a motorcycle.
WHITEFISH MOUNTAIN RESORT
This resort, situated on the shores of Whitefish Lake, provides some of the best down-hill skiing in the nation. You can rent skis, snowboards or snowshoes at the resort. Looking for something a little different? How about night skiing or a moonlight dine and ski outing? Our KOA is open year round, so try us out for a combination of late season skiing with early spring camping. You can stay cozy in our Kamping Kabins during any season of the year.
During the summer Whitefish Mountain Resort continues to offer outdoor experiences for everyone in the family. Possible activities include mountain bike riding, hiking
and zip line tours. We will be happy to make all the arrangements for you.
