Whitefish Lake State Park is a little 10-acre lakeside plot, just outside of Whitefish, studded with 25 tent and RV campsites, including several new hiker/bicyclist sites.
The park's prime attraction is a sandy swimming beach and boat launch to access the lake's typically placid water-skiing surface. Its prime detriment—depending on your sleeping preference—is the sound of trains passing nearby.
Whitefish Lake is otherwise relatively secluded, and in addition to boating, bird-watching and shore-side picnicking, visitors can check out some of the high-end residences recently constructed on its sought-after shores from the privileged vantage of the water. Just remember: it's not polite to stare, and one should never point binoculars in the direction of anyone's windows, even if you are just trying to identify a distant warbler.
The maximum RV combined length is 35 feet, and services are available May 1 through Sept. 30.
