We camped at a campground in Hungry Horse, Montana last week on our trip to Glacier National Park. We visited the Hungry Horse Dam and Reservoir while we were there. It was just a few miles from where we stayed. The visitor's center was closed when we were there. But we enjoyed walking around and looking at the impressive dam. We also saw an osprey family.

I hope you can see it in person someday. It was an interesting place to visit. I bet the road around the lake would be nice to explore, too!! It's over 100 miles of dirt road.
