Flathead Lake

Our ranch is located directly on the shores of Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, spanning nearly 30 miles in length. It is also one of the cleanest freshwater lakes in the world.

The beach on Flathead Lake is always a popular gathering spot on hot afternoons. Sailing or boating across the clear blue water, participating in a canoe race, or enjoying a swim in Flathead Lake are all exhilarating ways to spend an afternoon. Water skiing, knee boarding, and wake boarding are included in your dude ranch vacation package, as is the use of sailboats, stand up paddleboards, canoes, and kayaks for individual lake adventures.
