In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, west of the continental divide and just south of the Canadian border, lies the 2.4 million acre Flathead National Forest. Home to lynx, grizzly bear, and bull trout; with numerous lakes, streams, and rivers to enjoy, the forest is the premiere destination for visitors looking to experience natural landscapes of the American West. Visit one of our three wilderness areas, such as the famous Bob Marshall Wilderness, for a rare glimpse at undeveloped areas with outstanding opportunities for solitude. Celebrated for its water, wildlife, and wilderness the Flathead National Forest has abundant recreation opportunities and outstanding natural resources. We invite you to experience your National Forest!
