Downstream Recreation Area and Campground are just below Fort Peck Dam. The Interpretive Center and Powerhouses are within walking distance. The campground is comfortable with level sites, trees and trails. The Interpretive Center has displays regarding the dam construction and area history. The powerhouse tour was very interesting and informative as well as free! If you're in the area stop... More

I love fishing this lake. You cant help but catch fish! It is best fished from a boat, but plenty of chances to fish from land are there. Ling, Salmon, Walleye, Small mouth Bass, they are all there!

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
