Overview

Riverside 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 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 three overnight sites (2 double occupancy and 1 single occupancy) for tent and RV camping. Each is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets are provided. There is no water or garbage service at this facility. Campground roads and parking spurs are gravel. An on-site host is available at nearby Murray Bay Campground to answer any questions about the facility and surrounding area.

Nearby Attractions:

Riverside Campground is approximately 31 miles southwest of the West Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park.
