“Boat lunch, and grassy setting, but not good swimming- very muddy. Meet whitefish marine boat rentals here to put in, and cruise the lake for your own special location.”

“Once you go there, you will never be the same. Amazing wilderness with spectacular views. Be prepared. Tough hiking and wild animals. Bring bear spray and makes lots of noise.”

Campground
“This is one of our families favorite places to go. It has a beach to swim at, cliffs to jump off for all ages and a rope swing at the south end of the lake. Boating is highly recommended here. It is a fantastic lake for kayaking and paddle boarding too. ”

“Woodland Park is fun for everyone year round! In the summer, enjoy long walks around the water features and playgrounds or splash away at the water park. In the winter there are two different skating rinks to choose from- a maintained one that does charge an entry fee or Woodland Park pond for free, if you don't mind the occasional bit of uneven ice!”

“Close in, casual walk overlooking the swan river. Great place to head when you are downtown and need a quick nature fix. Also good little short cut for bikers headed out of town down the swan wanting to avoid the highway for just a bit longer.”
