Camping And Hiking at Emery Bay Campground

The Emery Bay Campground is located on the east shore of the Hungry Horse Reservoir off of Road 38.

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.
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.
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 campsite includes tables and campfire rings with grills. As well as vault toilets and drinking water. An on-site host is available to answer any questions about the campground and surrounding areas.
