Fort Peck Lake is located right by the Rock Creek Marina and Campground. I fished right from the shore over a few days, which was not overly productive. Over many hours, I only caught 3 fish in total: a Northern Pike, Black Crappie and a Smallmouth bass. They were however 3 species I have never caught before in all my... More

Once upon a time, the US did some awesome projects. Fort Peck (and Lake Elwell!) is an example. The longest earth dam in the world. (So they claim! I thought Quebec's La Grande was the largest earth dam ever) Anyway, the dam on the Milk River created a huge reservoir and there are several campgrounds with dry toilets, tables where... More

In this little tiny town lies one of the nicest campgrounds! The sites are far enough apart that you don't feel you are in someone else's kitchen. There is a wide-open area for dogs and kids to run. Just a real peaceful, soul-inspiring place!

We rented the Group area of this campground which is located clear in the back in a great area. It is a nice campground with nice clean bathrooms and showers. However, it is advertised this area and bathroom/showers and area were for our use only. The camp host told us we could not shut the gate. Which allowed people to... More

Beautiful view with this huge lake and the rolling landscape. But flies, gnats and Mosquitos love it too. Still nice place to visit for a few days.

Fort Peck was the largest earth filled dam in the world, with 1200 miles of shoreline. Most of the land around the Lake is part of the Charles M Russell National Wildlife Refuge. Get a map and more info here: http://www.fws.gov/refuge/charles_m_russell/ There are a few all weather road campgrounds and some that aren't all weather. Excellent fishing, world class walleye...

We camped at Duck Creek Recreation and it was amazing. The views were spectacular and it was very quiet. It was like our own piece of paradise. I would highly recommend it!

This lake is fantastic. The weather was perfect and the fist were biting. As crowded as the parking lot was at the boat dock, we only saw a few boats out because it is so large and there are so many different coves and places to see and fish. We launched our boat from near the dam the first day,... More

We stayed at the very nice downstream campground and visited both the reservoir's Interpretive Center and the hydroelectric power plant. The plant tour was interesting and showed the generation of hydro power up close. The Interpretive Center -- FREE -- was outstanding and well worth the visit. It covered the background and building of the dam (with more in the... More

We stayed in the downstream campground on our way through and it was a very nice stay. The spots were very large, clean and level. The bathrooms were clean and the showers worked well. We walked the nature trails below the interpretive center, both of which were very nice. I would definitely stay there again if I was traveling through.
