Murray Bay Campground
Murray Bay Campground is located high in the Rocky Mountains, less than 30 miles from the Continental Divide, surrounded by towering mountain peaks.

The campground is 22 miles south of Martin City on the east shore of Hungry Horse Reservoir. This campground has a 16 day stay limit. Pets must be on a leash at all times while visiting campgrounds.
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.
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.
The hosted campground offers 20 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.
