You Haven’t Lived Until You’ve Experienced This One Incredible Lake In Montana

With its 200 square miles and 185 miles of shoreline, Flathead Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi in the lower 48 states. And as one of Montana’s most famous destinations (for locals and tourists alike), it’s safe to say it’s one of the Treasure State’s finest gems.

But if you’re a Montanan and you’ve never been, you’re not alone. It may seem as if everyone on Earth has visited Flathead, but there are plenty of people who haven’t. If you’re one of them, here’s why you should start planning a trip for next summer (or go this weekend before fall weather really begins).

Flathead Lake is an incredible place. No wonder it’s considered one of Montana’s most impressive natural wonders.
