Whitefish, Montana offers a wide variety of outdoor vacation activities during the camping season. You’ll find great mountain biking at Whitefish Mountain Resort and on the new bike trail that is being developed along the lake.
Glacier National Park sits just 40 minutes away from Whitefish, as well as huge public land areas, and multiple rivers and lakes. If you’re camping in Whitefish, you’ll always find something to do in the great outdoors.
For all the great outdoors, there’s not a whole lot of campgrounds in the area. In fact, there are only two, and they are both public:
- The Tally Lake Campground sits at the edge of one of Montana’s most beautiful, and deepest lakes, with a nice beach, and good boating. The fishing is not so good. Open Memorial Day through Labor Day. You’ll find it almost 6 miles west of Whitefish on Hwy. 93, then 15 more miles west on Forest Service road 113.
- The Whitefish Lake State Park combines a lot of outdoor attractions near the town of Whitefish. Open May – September, $15 entrance fee. You’ll see signs for the park about 2 miles west of downtown Whitefish down Hwy. 93. The campground sits right on Whitefish Lake, and is especially great for Montana boating or canoeing vacations.
