3 Reviews of Murray Bay Campground (Mt)
Beautiful Waterside Campground

Loved staying at this campground as it was right on the water and extremely secluded from all that goes on at Glacier. 20 Miles from anything, located in Flathead National Forest. The only con I have is that the road to get to the camp is 20 miles of rough grated dirt. I recommend Site 12! It’s on the corner of the camp and has decent space from the other camps nearby! You can reach quite a few hikes in Flathead National Forest by driving.

Great campground

Beautiful campground. Shane was our camp host and was wonderful- always making rounds and delivering firewood, maps etc. Sites on the water had paths right down to the bay, but there was also a common use path and boat dock. Only complaint is there isn’t much hiking close by, which means traveling to where you want to hike takes quite a bit of time on the rough, dusty road. Also, no soft place to put a tent, but we were in a rooftop tent. Overall great experience!

Beautiful location with lake access, but rough road to access

Couldn't have been happier with the campground itself, but the road to get there was so rough that we were afraid we were going to pop a tire getting there, so we ended up cutting our stay short and finding a campground with easier road access. If you have a Jeep or 4WD vehicle, it would probably be a more comfortable drive.
