Overview

Overview

Lake Alva Campground is situated at the north end of Lake Alva in northwestern Montana. It offers visitors a chance to camp out and enjoy activities such as swimming, fishing and boating.

Natural Features:

The campground lies on the north end of Lake Alva, amid a dense forest that offers ample shade. At an elevation of approximately 4,120 feet, temperatures are relatively cool on summer days.

Plentiful wildlife viewing and birding opportunities exist in and around the campground. The lake is a loon nesting area during May and June, and the birds' mesmerizing calls can often be heard from the campground.

Recreation:

Boating and fishing are popular on 298-acre Lake Alva. Anglers cast for a variety of freshwater fish, including Kokanee salmon, suckers, whitefish, pike, trout and perch, among other species.

A boat ramp is available at the campground and while motorized boating is allowed, many non-motorized boaters find solace during early morning hours on the lake. Canoes, kayaks and row boats are available for rent. Swimming is also a popular activity.

Lake Alva is a NO-WAKE lake.

Facilities:

The only sites available for reservation at Lake Alva Campground are two group campsites. Individual sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The group sites can accommodate up to 25 people each. Parking space is limited. Each site is equipped with oversized tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

The campground also offers a day-use picnic area with sites that overlook the beautiful mountain lake. It offers access to a swimming beach, boat ramp, boat trailer parking, trash collection and recycling bins. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are also provided.

The area is patrolled daily by the host and local law enforcement.

Nearby Attractions:

Seeley Lake is about 10 miles from the campground, with boating, water skiing, canoeing, fishing and hiking. The town of Seeley Lake lies on the southeastern end of the lake.

The beautiful Mission Mountain Wilderness is about an hour away. The area is known for its scenic beauty and abundant wildlife.
