Overview

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

Visitors can expect a variety of recreational activities, including fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, exploring and big game hunting.

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.

Recreation:

Boating is popular on the 27,750-acre reservoir, and a native boat ramp for smaller watercraft is available. Swimming and fishing are also popular pastimes, and anglers can expect a catch of cutthroat trout and other varieties.

A number of biking and hiking trails begin near the campground and wind around the surrounding landscape and shoreline.

Facilities:

The campground offers more than two dozen first-come, first-served campsites, available for tent and RV camping. A group campsite is also available and can accommodate up to 150 guests on two separate loops.

Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are also provided. An on-site host is available to answer any questions about the campground and surrounding areas.

Nearby Attractions:

Emery Bay Campground is just 15 miles southwest of the West Glacier entrance into Glacier National Park.
