This describes our experience at this campground perfectly.
We have been camping here for 16 years and will never return.
A true shame as the views and lake is one of the best and our family has hundreds of fantastic memories from Tally lake.

Police state:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A police state is a state in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic, and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive.

The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement. Political control may be exerted by means of a secret police force ( hiding behind trees with binoculars to find Any little thing ) which operates outside the boundaries normally imposed by a constitutional state.

There are just so many options for recreation in Montana and Flathead Nat Forest hosts some wonderful memorable options for solo trips or with your family. Just do realize you are heading out into the wild and you need to be aware and educated about your surroundings and how to protect yourself from the elements and wildlife!! One being, you gotta have Bear Spray when you are out and about especially when off the beaten path, it might just save your life. Make sure people know where you are going, don't become another missed hiker that was never found, seen or heard from again. Hike smart and enjoy all that the beautiful forest has to offer!

We had the most wonderful time. We drove up NPF roads until we were the only car on the road. Hiked to Clearwater Lake. Beautiful! Clear as air, photograph was great! Just being alone during the summer crowds was a treat.

I am a Montana native, but have been in most of the countries on the planet. There are beautiful, diverse, challenging elements to every country. This is the best. You could spend your life in northwestern Montana and never see all of it.

We use the forest for all kinds of entertainment, hiking, fishing and there is a lot of ground to cover. We really enjoy the south fork and also float the north fork of the flathead river.
