Hungry Horse Reservoir Montana

Hungry Horse

Hungry Horse is located at the mouth of a lake formed by a government dam, which towers 564 feet. In the midst of some of the most beautiful scenery in the Northwest, this town enjoys several lakes and nearby mountain ranges. Its unusual name was authored by two draft horses used for logging. 

The horses, named Tex and Jerry, wandered off during the severe winter of 1900 and were found about a month later, scraggly and hungry, but alive. The town survived as well and boasts great fishing in late summer on the Hungry Horse Reservoir.
