Overview

North Dickey Lake Campground is a beautiful campground next to scenic Dickey Lake and several hiking and mountain biking trails. It's conveniently located off the main highway and provides a secluded location for outdoor enjoyment. A day use area is located on the other side of the lake.

Natural Features:

The campground is located in northwestern Montana on a hillside next to the 800-acre lake. It is nestled in a forest of larch and fir trees at an elevation of about 3,100 feet.

In the spring and early summer, the sound of the loon can often be heard from the campground.

Recreation:

The adjacent lake provides ample opportunity for boating, fishing, swimming and water skiing. Anglers can expect a catch of kokanee salmon, kamloop and rainbow trout. A grassy beach is also available near a popular swimming area on the lake.

A variety of hiking trails begin in the area, including the accessible, half-mile Dickey Lake Overlook Trail, which is also open to mountain biking. It leads to a viewing platform with nice views of the lake. Another trail heads from the campground to Mt. Marston.

Educational programs are offered throughout the summer. A general store, with fuel and groceries, is located about 3 miles to the north and a small restaurant and coffee shop are located about 2 miles to the west of the campground.

Facilities:

The campground offers 23 sites for tent and RV camping, but only two of the sites can be reserved. The rest are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring with grill. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided, but utility hookups are not available. Parking surfaces are gravel.

A dump station is available just north of Eureka on Highway 93, behind a gas station.

Nearby Attractions:

The campground is 20 miles from the United States-Canadian border, and 65 miles from the entrance to Glacier National Park.
