We love the campground. It's well run and well maintained. We use the tent sites. The only thing I don't like is that we have to move our tent after 3 days so the grass doesn't die. We also have to leave for one night after 7 days, but then we can come back again for 7 days. There is... More

Positively stunning views of the mountains over the lake. On the banks of the lake we were able to see bighorn sheep and mule deer.... More

This is a very popular boat ride that explores the Gates of the Mountains like Lewis and Clark saw it. Very picturesque narrow canyon with high rock walls on both sides. There are two comfortable excursion boats that leave on the hour or so.

We rented a boat at the Boat Loft at the bottom of the lake and spent a day fishing , caught half a dozen nice rainbows ,a walleye and a lot of perch. Very reasonable prices and good service, they do not sell fishing licenses at marina so get them before in Helena.

Camped here while visiting the Gates of the Mountains and it was quite nice. I was in a tent even though most everybody was in an RV. Lovely lake very popular for fishing, nice swim areas and good hiking as well.

Discovered this by accident. What a joy! The boat ride provides for stunning vistas and the captain is a great naturalist providing important information about the area and of course the association with Lewis & Clark. We were even treated to two deer bathing in the lake.

Holter Lake was much more interesting than I expected. I went out on a small, private boat and on the big tour ship. The canyon is magnificent and the lake is unique and beautiful. I will definitely be back to camp in some of the riverside camp grounds.
