Sculpted by glaciers, this national park features 2.3 million spectacular acres, hundreds of miles of trails, and diverse ecosystems that support a large variety of native ecosystems and species unlike anywhere else in the world. It also offers a wealth of natural resources, recreational, and educational opportunities. One favored trail, Nature Trail 370 is located at the base of Big Mountain Ski Resort about 8 miles from Whitefish and features 4 different pathways that offer fields of wildflowers, sweeping vistas, and short, long, and elevation choices. Each of the 5 Ranger stations offers maps of the trails and they are also available on line. Dogs of all sizes are allowed for no additional fee. Dogs may not be left unattended at any time. Many of the wilderness areas, developed campgrounds, day use areas, and picnic sites require dogs to be on leash. They can be off leash in the National Forest if they are under good voice control; however leashing is suggested due to wild animals. Dogs must not chase game animals at any time. Although you can normally camp anywhere in National Forests following certain restrictions, there are 27 campgrounds here on a 1st come 1st served basis that may have some or all of the following: potable water, flush/vault/pit toilets, boat ramp access, and ADA accessibility. A list of campgrounds and of the 5 ranger districts that oversee them can be found at http://www.fs.fed.us/r1/flathead/rec/myweb/camp.pdf. This rv park is closed during the offseason. The camping and tent areas also allow dogs. There is a dog walk area at the campground. There are no electric or water hookups at the campgrounds.
