Overview

Overview

McGregor Lake Campground is located approximately 53 miles southeast of Libby, Montana, on Highway 2 at the west end of McGregor Lake in Kootenai National Forest.

This area is about halfway between Libby and Kalispell in the heart of the Thompson Chain of Lakes, a premier fishing and hunting area.

Natural Features:

At an elevation of 3,900 feet, the campground is nestled among young pines at the west end of McGregor Lake in the Fisher River Area. The lake spans 1,240 acres, making it the largest lake in the Kootenai National Forest.

The Fisher River Area is the watershed formed by the four forks (West, East, Silver Butte, Pleasant Valley) of the Fisher River and Wolf Creek. Within it is the Thompson Chain of Lakes, which consists of more than 20 lakes.

Recreation:

McGregor Lake is host to a prime mackinaw trout population and offers excellent opportunities for a trophy-size catch. There is a boat ramp on-site for access to the lake. Swimming and water skiing are also popular activities.

Huckleberry picking is available nearby. Hikers can walk the 2.9-mile McGregor Lake Shoreline Trail.

Facilities:

The campground has 27 sites, including one host site, with tables and fire rings. Most sites offer an average length of 32 feet. Vault toilets and drinking water are available.

A group site is available for large groups, offering a 120-by-140 gravel parking area. Four tent sites are located along the lake near the boat ramp.

Day use picnic sites with tables and fire rings are located near the beach.
