The West Shore campground is located on 129 acres perched above the lake on rock outcrops carved by ice-age glaciers, and though the park's beaches are rocky, a boat ramp and docks provide boat access, and swimming is popular in summer. The campground above, meanwhile, offers fine views of the Swan and Mission mountain ranges across the lake. It's considered one of the quieter of the multiple state parks ringing Flathead Lake.
West Shore has 31 campsites, 7 of them tent-only, a maximum combined trailer length clearance of 40 feet, and the standard complement of vault toilets, fire rings, tables, and a firewood concession.
Boaters be aware: the park's floating docks may be removed from mid-December through January during freeze-up. Check with FW&P at (406) 752-5501 for status.
