Doris Creek Campground

  

Overview

Doris Creek Campground is located on the west side of Hungry Horse Reservoir, high in the Rocky Mountains, west of the Continental Divide and just south of the Canadian border. Spectacular views and ample opportunities for recreation surround the campground.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated along the massive Hungry Horse Reservoir, which was dammed to provide hydroelectric power and flood control to the area. It is the 10th highest dam in the United States and provides a stunning backdrop. Home to lynx, grizzly bear and bull trout, the forest is a premiere destination for visitors.

Recreation:

Boating is popular on the 27,750-acre reservoir, and a concrete boat ramp is accessible from within the campground. Swimming and fishing are also popular pastimes, and anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish, including cutthroat trout.

Facilities:

The campground offers 10 overnight sites for tent and RV camping. Each is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. There is no water at this campground. Please bring your own drinking water. An accessible vault toilet is provided. Campground roads and parking spurs are gravel. Campground host is available at the Doris Boat Launch to answer any questions about the campground and surrounding area. The campground also offers first-come, first-serve sites as well.

Nearby Attractions:

Doris Creek Campground is approximately 14 miles southwest of the West Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park.
