Where the Middle Fork of the Flathead first meets up with Highway 2, the Bear Creek confluence is right here as well.  There is a pull out and parking lot south of the Highway.  You can put in or take out here for different middle fork options.

There is a raft launch slide into the river here because of the steep bank.  Kayakers can easily walk down and put in from the parking lot.
