Wayfarers State Park, near the town of Bigfork at the northern end of Flathead Lake, is best known for stunning views of the lake, especially at sunset, and wildflower blooms that run from spring through fall.
The park's 67 acres encompass a mixed terrain of grassy fields just begging for a picnic blanket, mature forest ribboned with hiking trails, and rocky outcrops overlooking the expansive blue of Flathead Lake.
Thirty campsites accommodate overnight visitors. Seven are reserved for tent-camping only, and several are located on the shoreline for campers arriving by boat. A dock, boat ramp, firewood and ice concessions in season, bear-resistant storage lockers (don't forget to use them!), a comfort station with showers, and the usual complement of campground conveniences round out the amenities.
