Hungry Horse, Montana is a small town located close to some of the state’s largest outdoor adventure areas, including Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness. It’s also just a short drive from Whitefish Mountain Resort, Blacktail Ski Resort and Flathead Lake.
All this offers plenty of great Montana hiking, skiing, fly fishing and backpacking. It’s enough that you probably could live a life time in the area and never ski, hike or fish all the local spots.
With all these great recreation options, Hungry Horse may be a great place to set up Montana hotel or lodging. As the town’s name suggests, the town is named after a pair of horses that wandered off in 1900, and game back hungry.
You’ll find Hungry Horse on Montana Highway 2, part way between Columbia Falls and the West Glacier entrance to Glacier National Park. Nearby is the Hungry Horse Dam, an enormous, 565 foot tall dam that holds back 34 miles of water in the Hungry Horse Reservoir.
In town, you’ll find lots of great campgrounds, as well as hotels and other lodging options. Below you can see some of our lodging and hotel choices for this area.
