"Laid back little artsy town on the Big Lake" Bigfork by Camping_Girl

Bigfork Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 29 photos

Bigfork is a quiet, easy going little town, situated on the east side of Flathead Lake, one of the largest lakes in the US. Artists' shops abound in this little town, and there is definitely a lot of talent here.

Just south of town is a little spot called Woods Bay. Here you'll find a micro brewery, a steak house, the Islander Inn and a great restaurant called The Raven. The Raven overlooks Flathead Lake, and what a view it is! Locals ride across the lake in their boats, and dock at the Raven to enjoy the great food and cold refreshments.

Look close, and you'll see our "baby" parked in front of the Inn. Margrite, the owner of the Swan River Inn, was very friendly and offered to let us park the bike in a protected spot behind the building.

The Raven

This pub is situated in Woods Bay, just south of Bigfork. They have an upper and lower outdoor deck, both of which overlook the Flathead Lake.

The food here is awesome, the service is outstanding, and they also offer several of the locally-made brews on tap. My favorite was the wheat ale from the micro brewery across the street.
