Hebgen Lake is located in Southwest Montana and is created by Hebgen Dam. It is well known for the 1959 Hebgen Lake earthquake (magnitude 7.1 to 7.5) which occurred nearby on August 17, 1959, forming Quake Lake which is located immediately downstream.
Hebgen Lake and the surrounding area offer many recreational activities: camping, fishing, boating, and hiking. Campgrounds include Rainbow Point and Cherry Creek. Rainbow Point is the largest campground on the lake, offering four "loops." Each loop contains approximately 20 campsites. Each campsite can accommodate a full-size camper and one or two vehicles.

  • great views, fishing and boating. Enjoy the beauty of this lake. We have seen a lot of wildlife in the area and fishing can be terrific, especially near the dam.

  • We camped a mile from the lake. It is a beautiful spot, but not during mosquito season. They were swarming in July and nothing seemed to help.
