Finding a Recreation Area or Activity
On our website, recreation opportunities are organized by districts or activity type. Note the area on our forest you’d like to stay or explore, under the right column heading ‘Areas & Activities’, ‘Find an Area’ select the district that covers that area, then view/select the available recreation activities. Or, choose an activity under the Recreation heading on the left side of the webpage and see where on the forest it is offered. Either way, we’re sure you’ll find exceptional recreation opportunities on the Flathead National Forest.
The District Vicinity Map displays the district boundaries, where they are located on the Flathead Forest, and their relation to surrounding forests and Northwestern Montana.
