Access the Kerr / Seli’š Ksanka Qlispe’ Dam From Our Flathead Lake Hotel

Breathtaking Views From Above

Soar sky-high when you visit the man-made marvel of the Seli’š Ksanka Qlispe’ Dam, formerly known as the Kerr Dam, at Flathead Lake. Designed as a hydroelectricity generator, the concrete arch Seli’š Ksanka Qlispe’ / Kerr Dam is also a stunning architectural and recreational destination. Rising 204 feet high, the dam soars more than 50 feet higher then Niagara Falls, offering incredible canyon views.

Head up to the Seli’š Ksanka Qlispe’ / Kerr Dam boardwalk for panoramic views and a picnic following a scenic white-water rafting session, serene fishing expedition, or boat outing on Flathead Lake. Explore the Flathead Valley, beginning with one of the most historic dams in Montana, all from the convenience of our conveniently located Flathead Lake hotel, Red Lion Inn & Suites Ridgewater in Polson.
