Centered around a beautiful lake that offers great swimming, boating, and fishing, Whitefish Lake State Park is one of the gems of the Montana State Parks system. Located just two miles west of the town of Whitefish, the park offers a relaxing atmosphere, impressive natural scenery, and plenty of opportunities to enjoy spending time in the great outdoors.

While it's at its most popular in summer, the park is open all year round. There's a small campground where RVs are more than welcome, so it's the perfect spot to base yourself on a camping adventure in northwestern Montana.

Keep reading to find out exactly what recreational activities are on offer in Whitefish Lake State Park and the essential details you need to know before setting up camp.

Getting Outdoors

When you camp in Whitefish Lake State Park, it's all about the lake. Whatever sort of vacation you're planning and no matter what you want to do during your stay, the lake's icy waters will never be too far away.

In the summer months, the park is a hive of activity as many visitors take to the water for a cooling swim. There's a pretty sandy beach within the park's boundaries, and the still waters offer the perfect place to escape the summer heat.

In fact, because Whitefish Lake is quite well protected and the water never gets too windy or choppy, it's also hugely popular with water skiiers. All types of boating are popular within the park, and a concessionaire offers pedal boats, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards for rent.

Fishing is the other main pastime that brings campers to the park from far and wide. Lake, bull, and rainbow trout all feature, as do whitefish and northern pike. And with a boat launching site available within the park, it's quick and easy to get out on the water.

One other attraction well worth mentioning is not actually located within the park boundaries, but is easily accessible from the campground. This is the Whitefish Trail, a 42-mile trail network that wraps its way around the town of Whitefish and Whitefish Lake.

Containing a mix of single trail, logging roads, and scenic overlooks, this offers myriad opportunities for hikers and mountain bikers to go exploring. There are 12 trailheads from which you can join the trail, so check out a map and plan your route before setting out.

Camping at Whitefish Lake State Park

Whitefish Lake State Park is a wonderful destination for campers of all ages. If you'd like to stay for a while in this beautiful state park, book an RV in Flathead County and pick a spot in the park's pleasant lakeside campground.

There are 25 campsites in total, most (but not all) of which welcome RVs. The maximum RV or trailer size allowed in the campground is 40 feet, so keep this in mind before reserving a site. It's also worth pointing out that while some sites remain open all year round, not all do, and water and showers are unavailable in winter.

Grills, fire rings, flush toilets, and showers are all provided, while firewood and ice sales are also available. And if you're traveling with your canine companion, the good news is that leashed and well-behaved pets are welcome here.

However, please note that the campground is reasonably close to the railway line, so you'll definitely notice some train noise while staying here. Trains also stop adjacent to the campground, which can be a pretty big distraction if you're chasing a quiet and peaceful getaway.

Exploring the Area

When you're ready to wrap up your Whitefish Lake State Park RV camping getaway and hit the open road once again, make sure you take a close look at a map first. There are stacks of other great attractions within a couple of hours' drive (or thereabouts), so plan your route carefully.

To the northeast you'll find the breathtaking surrounds of Glacier National Park, where you can enjoy great hiking and fishing as well as several campgrounds. If you'd like to check out another stunning lake, Flathead Lake is less than an hour's drive to the south, or you ca head to Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort to indulge in some cold-climate fun.

If you'd prefer to head for a major center, Missoula is a little over two-and-a-half hours away. While you're there, be sure to try your luck flu fishing on the Bitterroot River — the scenery alone makes it well worth it, but you might even catch a big one.

With its untamed wilderness and spectacular scenery, the northwestern corner of Montana offers so much to explore, and there's no better way to see it all than in an RV.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.
