Higher ground camping around EarthQuake Lake

When traveling throughout this area of Montana I noticed several campgrounds along the way, however something I really was looking for was a location which allowed me to be off the water a little bit.   Why??   Because of the location's unique history.

This area is known as "Earthquake Lake"…
