Lost Johnny Point Campground



Lost Johnny Point Campground is located at 3600-feet 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 on the west shore of 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.


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 and whitefish. Waterskiing, sailing, and motorboating are also popular.


The campground offers 21 overnight sites for tent and RV camping. Each is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Campground roads and parking spurs are paved. An on-site host is available to answer any questions about the campground and surrounding area. The campground also offers first-come, first-serve sites as well.

Nearby Attractions:

Lost Johnny Point Campground is approximately 18 miles southwest of the West Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park.
