Hungry Horse Dam and Reservoir Montana

Nestled along the northern edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, Hungry Horse Dam, completed in 1953, created Hungry Horse Reservoir.



For most of us, the perceived value of the Hungry Horse area are the numerous recreation opportunities and campgrounds.  Nearby is Glacier National Park as well.

The mountains in the background are the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area.  This area has lots of grizzly bear and mountain lion.  There are no roads.  Only horses and hikers can access the area.



A fairly famous icon of the town of Hungry Horse, Montana, this little carving is one of our favorite souvenirs of our Montana travels.  This is a link to Hungry Horse Montana recreation and trails information.
