This Forest Service campground is being leased by a private company. Every bathroom was out of TP each day. They bathrooms were somewhat clean. I think part of the problem is that there were several single sites that they were allowing 2 or 3 families or groups to stay in a single site. I don't know if they were considering these group sites, but they were only large enough for a single 25 or 30 foot trailer. Having said that the host should have recognised this problem and stocked more than once a day if they are going to allow large groups in single sites. It's clear the campground wasn't designed for that heavy of use. Also the host didn't make any effort to ask the large groups to keep it down. While they're parties were not wild they were loud, and the noise of several parties went on well past midnight. The host instead seemed to spend all of his time visiting a single mothers camp and hanging out with her for several hours. We also observed camps were nobody was present and food was left out. This is grizzly bear country so it could be a problem. We found deer at an adjacent camp eating food left out and unattended. when trying to chase the deer off we found there was peanut butter covered celery left in the fire pit the deer was eating and very reluctant to leave. This was also the site the host had spent most of his evening hanging out at.

This is a great dry camping experience on Hungry Horse Reservoir close to Glacier National Park. Also one of the few campgrounds around the lake with ATT service, only 2 bars but uncluttered and I could get 10 down/7 up without the booster. The camp hosts were new and very nice and helpful. 16 miles from town and maybe 20 some miles to the West Glacier entrance. There is no water or dump, you can dump at the Conoco in Columbia Falls.

Very quiet and heavily wooded so solar isn't much use in most sites. Lots of wildlife and wooded views of the lake. I would definitely stay here again.
