About Flathead Lake
The largest natural freshwater lake by surface area west of the Mississippi River, Flathead Lake is 27.3 miles (43.9 km) long and up to 15.5 miles (24.9 km) wide with a maximum depth of 370.7 feet (113.0 m), and an average of 164.7 feet (50.2 m), making it deeper than the average depth of the Persian Gulf and the Yellow Sea. Glacier fed, it is one of the cleanest lakes in the populated world for its size and type. Once known as “Salish Lake”, this body of water takes its name from the Salish (Flathead) Indians who live at the southern end of the lake on the Flathead Indian Reservation.
Flathead Lake lies at the southern end of a geological feature called the Rocky Mountain Trench. The trench, which formed with the Rocky Mountains, extends north into the southern Yukon as a straight, steep valley, which also holds the headwaters of the Columbia River. The Flathead Valley was formed by the glacial damming of the Flathead River and sustains a remarkably mild climate for a region located this far north and inland. The mild climate allows for a wide variety of produce including: vineyards; cherry, apple, pear, and plum orchards; vegetables; hay; honey; nursery trees; Christmas trees; sod/turf; wheat production.
The area features include close proximity to many mountains, forests, National Parks, and wilderness areas including the beautiful and awe inspiring Glacier National Park, aptly nicknamed “the Crown of the Continent”. Flathead Lake recreational activities include boating, rafting, water skiing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and fishing; nearby land-based recreation includes hiking, camping, mountain biking, golf, and mountain and rock climbing. There are several quaint and historic Lake communities as well as larger, nearby cities that are rich with art, entertainment, shopping, dining, and points of interest.
