Yellow Bay State Park is a state park and public recreation area on the eastern shore of Flathead Lake that offers an array of outdoor and recreational activities. Nestled in valleys of sweet cherry orchards in Lake County, the 15-acre park includes Yellow Bay Creek and a broad, stony beach which is ideal for sunbathing, swimming, scuba-diving, pleasure boating, trout fishing, and waterskiing. Day-use areas have picnic tables, pedestal grills, flush toilets, and drinking water, and a boat ramp and dock are available for launching. A golf course can be found nearby in Polson, along with three museums.
