The campground is located along the North Fork of the Flathead River, 
a designated wild and scenic river.  The understory is grassy 
providing minimum privacy between sites with many sites overlooking 
the river.  The North Fork of the Flathead River is an excellent 
family float river.  There is a free map, Open Road Map, available 
from the Hungry Horse Ranger District Office that, among other things, 
has "put-ins" and "put-outs" on the North Fork of the Flathead River.  
Big Creek empties into the North Fork of the Flathead River at the 
campground.  The campground is 2.5 miles from the Camas Creek 
entrance to the Glacier National Park.

The Big Creek Outdoor Education Center of The Glacier Institute is 
across the road from the campground.  It provides "opportunities 
for children and adults to learn about the diverse natural and 
cultural resources of Glacier National Park and the Crown of the 
Continent Ecosystem."  The Institute offers field seminars including 
guided hikes in the Glacier National Park.  Although not all the 
seminars and hikes originate from the Big Creek Outdoor Education 
Center, some do.  Check out their Web site for information and 
schedule of events or telephone (406) 755-1211.
