Dispersed NF camping

All the established campgrounds were full which we expected on a Saturday afternoon, so we headed up this road. It goes for quite a ways and the map from the front said that it would have eventually lead up to a lake, but we didn’t make it that far. We ended up at one of the dispersed sites not far up the road, there wasn’t much space at a lot of the dispersed areas off the road but it was really quiet and did the job for the night. No Verizon cell service in the area. The reservoir is so beautiful, so it was worth the stay! Make sure you pack out your trash, we saw some overflowing fire rings that were terrible so please make sure to have an appropriate way to pack it out!

off - site / National Forest camping

I was traveling to meet up with a group of friends in Glacier NP as a stop along my solo cross country road trip. We didn't set reservations and all the campgrounds were full, so we opted to "dirt bag" it and take advantage of some free national forest camping off the road up a ways along Hungry Horse Reservoir near Doris Creek. There are a few places up the gravel road along the lake where you can pull off to camp away from the road. It's gorgeous! A beautiful location, lakeside access, incredible night skies, easy access via 30min driving to the west side of Glacier NP (photos), quiet (no people), flat ground, perfect for a quick camp fix! Of course, since we didn't take a real campsite there were no facilities - but we're not picky.
