About the Park


The current drought situation in the Flathead Basin has caused the level of Flathead Lake to be below full pool. Due to current low water levels, the marina and boat ramp at the Finley Point Unit of Flathead Lake State Park may not be usable. Please use extreme caution and check water levels before launching your boat. If you need to cancel your reservation due to the low water levels, you will be given a full refund. Please call 1-855-922-6768 for cancellations.  For current lake levels, please visit


The Finley Point unit of Flathead Lake State Park is located 12 miles north of Polson on the southeast shore of Flathead Lake. This park sits in an open ponderosa pine forest.

The campground has 18 RV campsites with electricity, including one wheelchair accessible site; 7 tent-only campsites; 4 boat camping slips with electricity; and 14 boat slips. The maximum RV/trailer length is 40 feet. Bear resistant storage lockers are available. For more information about camping or specific campsites, visit or call 855-922-6768.
