Campground Site At Retreat – Cricket Butler


May through mid-October

EVERYONE IS WELCOMED - You do not have to bike to come to the Whitefish Bike Retreat. Lots of hiking, swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, running ... There is a Pump Track on the property and a small frisbee disk golf course for guests to use (a dirt jumper and frisbees are available for guests to check out at no charge).

There are some trails and features on the Retreat Property to play on before or after your Whitefish Trail ride - hone in those skills before hitting the long trail or just to practice some skills once you return from a fun day of riding!

We are puppy friendly so bring the whole family (dogs allowed in campground or may have use of the Hound Hostel).

We are fully staffed from May through September to help guests the best way to discover the area! We offer shuttles from Amtrak and Airport and run a town shuttle as well as custom trailhead or bike destination shuttles.
