Poison lies at the south end of Flathead Lake in northwestern Montana. The Flathead is a prime cherry growing region with many cherry orchards throughout the area. The Flathead River that flows from Poison features whitewater rafting and Kerr Dam. The broad, sweeping valley south of Poison is bordered by the rugged, snow-capped Mission Mountains. The National Bison Range at Moiese with its large herds of bison, elk, deer, antelope and bighorn sheep is nearby.
