The island is a bit primitive with no real place to dock a boat. We had to figure that part out then try to get off the boat by stepping on floating branches! One restroom serves the island. There is a park ranger to give information and collect the fee. Hike to try to see the wildlife. No crowds here!... 更多
Planning our trip for the end of busy season worked well in having less foot traffic on the island! We recommend taking a scenic boat tour with Bill of Wild Horse Island Boat tours! Bill was knowledgeable, engaging and helped us spot wildlife around the island before our hike! We recommend a 6-7 hour excursion with Bill who gets you... 更多
Hike the trails on Wild Horse Island on Flathead Lake and see the wild horses, bighorn Rams, deer, bald eagles, golden eagles and this weekend we saw thousands of white butterflies. Came across a ranger and he answered all our questions. What dug the big holes in places? What were the butterflies? What was around the fruit trees?
We boated in to Wild Horse Island and tied up on one of the landing sites. There are no public boat docks on this protected island. We hiked the trails, but we never saw the horses.
I kayaked to the island (2 mile paddle) along with a wonderful guide, feeling very foolish that I had expected to see the 5 wild horses on the island. It's a big place. But I did. Sometimes miracles happen. There are 4 black horses and one paint. Incredible. The lead stallion let us know when he was sick of us... 更多
This island park is accessible only by boat. The nearest charter boats are in Big Arm, but other places on the lake offer charters as well. The park hosts a herd of wild horses, and big horn sheep. There are lots of hiking trails, and buildings left over from the islands farming past. There is some privately owned land on... 更多
there are only 5 wild horses on the island and we didn't see them because you have to hike through brush to get to the. it was a very hot day and most of the island is devoid of trees. did see some mountain goats. but to pay for a boat to take you there, just not really worth it
Family of six (four kids age 11-18) enjoyed our tour. We took off from Bigfork, which is probably the longest place to get to the island from in the lake (from towns that give tours). Took about an hour to get there. Lake was a little rough and clouds came in, so not quite as pleasant a ride over as... 更多
Wild Horse Island is a place that should be on anyone's bucket list. It's very peaceful and so quiet with birds chirping very loudly! There is a very good chance that every time you visit you will see the wild horses. The wild horses aren't that scary and do not act wild. Views from this island are breathtaking!
Had a wonderful time observing nature and the local wildlife. Make sure you take occasionally go off the main highways to check out the local wildlife with out all the noise and distractions. Can't wait to visit again.
