Just seven miles from the summertime bustle of Flathead Lake, Lake Mary Ronan State Park is a good option for weekenders wanting to avoid the crowds.
The 120-acre park has a boat ramp and dock, a group camping site, 27 no-hookup tent sites, and several RV sites with electrical connections and potable water. Firewood, vault toilets, fire pits, grills and bear-resistant lockers are available.
The lake itself is stocked with kokanee salmon, trout, smallmouth bass and perch, and its reputation as a fishing (and ice fishing) lake is excellent. Huckleberry and mushroom hunting in season, canoeing and kayaking, swimming and bird-watching are all viable ways to spend the day at Lake Mary Ronan.
