1 Review of McGregor Lake Campground
MacGregor Lake, in the Thompson Chain of Lakes

The lake, in the midst of the Thompson Chain of Lakes, is amazingly beautiful. This is a good destination for water activities and fishing. The campsites are basic and a bit rough. Located quite a bit off the beaten path, so be sure to bring groceries and supplies as it is a good trek in to Libby or Kalispell if you forget something
