Reviewed 30 December 2012

Wild horses, bighorn sheep, and the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. Primitive: no amenities, but beautiful.

“A Great Day Outdoors”
Reviewed 26 October 2012

If you enjoy beautiful scenery and wildlife this is a great place to spend the day. We went out to the island and were fortunately enough to find the incredible long horn sheep....which was our focus for the trip. You have to hike a bit to find them, but it is definitely worth the effort and not a difficult hike. We enjoyed several hours (enhanced by our tour boat guide Chris from Flathead Raft Co) cruising the shore line, seeing bald eages, deer, big horn sheep, ewes...didn't see the wild horses, but enjoyed the entire trip. A great outing for anyone.

“This is Nature, not Disneyland!”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

We traveled out by boat for a half-day trip and enjoyed every minute. Great hiking, lots of wildlife. Bring a camera and a field guide, so you can identify all the flowers, plants and birds you'lll see. Pristine and gorgeous.
