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. Home to lynx, grizzly bear and bull trout, the forest is a premiere destination for visitors.
Doris Creek Campground is approximately 14 miles southwest of the West Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park.
Boating is popular on the 27,750-acre reservoir, and a concrete boat ramp is accessible at Doris Point Boat Launch above the campground which also provides ample parking. Swimming and fishing are also popular pastimes, and anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish, including cutthroat trout.
