Riverside Campground is known locally as a mountaintop escape. Nestled within the nationally renowned Rocky Mountains, Riverside is perfect for photographers, nature spotters, and families with both RVs and dogs in tow.
Although there are only a total of 3 sites available for reservation, the scenery and opportunities for recreation make Riverside a hidden gem for campers. Of these three sites, two are double-sized, making them perfect for a group camping trip, although there's no limit on minimum occupants, so feel free to use the extra space for an additional pop-up camper or grill. All three sites come with the typical amenities like campfire rings, small grilling surfaces, and a picnic table. Overnight guests should note that there's no potable water or garbage disposal at Riverside Campground, so make sure to pack accordingly.
Although this campground is limited in its amenities, any guests with dogs should still remember to keep Fido on a leash and clean up any messes that they leave in the area.
Riverside is conveniently located on the gigantic Hungry Horse Reservoir, an over 27,000-acre body of water that offers boating opportunities throughout the warmer months. A concrete boat ramp is offered free to overnight guests and is located just inside of Riverside's main entrance gates. If you've got Fido along for a maritime mission, be sure to keep them secured and safe as you jet across the waves. Canines are also to be kept out of the water at all times.
Fishing is offered via the reservoir as well, with popular species including cutthroat trout and whitefish. Notably, this is one of the few reservoirs in Montana not stocked by the local DNR. This means that everything you catch is 100% naturally grown and perfect for that evening's feast. Canines are welcome to accompany anglers, as long as they're well-behaved and don't both other fishers.
Its remote location and wealth of recreation opportunities make Riverside Campground the pawfect place to spend a weekend with your canine companion!
