Looking fur a place to pitch your tent at Montana’s gorgeous Hungry Horse Reservoir? You’d be barking mad not to consider camping at Lost Johnny Point Campground! You’ll need to be prepared for a true wilderness experience, though -- Lost Johnny Point doesn’t have any electricity, showers, or RV hookups, and the vault toilets are pretty much the only concession to modernity. Speaking of RVs, sites are a little cramped, so larger rigs might have some trouble.
But if you’re looking to leave civilization behind and get back to nature, this might be the paw-fect place for you! Sites sit on the side of the reservoir and within view of one of the highest dams in the country. Those that don’t have waterside views are just a bone’s throw away from a small stream. Though some sites are available for walk-ins, it’s still a good idea to make your reservation early. Overnight fees start at just $16.
The campground is also close to all kinds of opportunities for recreation. If you and your canine consider yourselves avid anglers, you're in the right spot -- Hungry Horse is a great place to catch some cutthroat trout. Of course, one of the main selling points of Lost Johnny Point is its proximity to the western entrance of Glacier National Park. Non-furry family members might enjoy a day trip, but the park doesn’t exactly welcome wagging tails with open arms -- doggos aren’t allowed on the trails at all. Hound-dog hikers might want to investigate the 9-mile out-and-back Jimmy Ridge Mountain Biking Trail, located two miles away from camp.
Grab a leash, hop in the car with your favorite camping companion, and paw on over to Lost Johnny Point Campground for an un-fur-gettable vacation in nature! One last thing, though: drinking water isn't available on-site, so be sure to pack enough water for your trip.
