Fish Creek Campground

Share |

Fish Creek is a large and popular campground set in old growth forest on the SW corner of Lake McDonald. It's only a couple miles from Apgar campground. Water access is good and some of the sites back up to the lake itself. The forest is tall and thick, with an interesting mix of trees. For views, you will need to head to the popular beach that borders the campground (as seen in the picture above).Fish Creek offers full modern bathrooms as well.

Since it's so close to Apgar, many people tend to overlook Fish Creek. The area is very thickly wooded and sloped, which can make driving a large rig a bit more difficult than some of the other large campgrounds in Glacier. For those who like to fish, try silver or copper spoons and cast them out as far as you can, with an erratic retrieve. A lake trout just may cooperate.
