Agree with the last reviewer that there is little to no vegetation-our campsite was gravel/sand/dust and scrub brush. No shade trees. Yes its free, yes camp fire ring and picnic table but the place is desolate. The water level is low this year so very rocky/muddy/uneven shore. We stayed one night and packed our bags quickly for greener pastures. No shade in the noon day sun and no hookups to run A/C to keep us cool...despite the reservoir it felt dry and uninviting

Stayed in Horse Prairie Campground. Clark Canyon Dam and Reservoir is located adjacent to I-15 in southwest Montana. Just a short distance from the interstate was Horse Prairie Campground. This is a small (about 20 sites) campground on two points overlooking Clark Canyon Reservoir. Nicely spaced sites with spur, picnic table and shelter, and campfire ring. There is a well with pump, and vault toilets. Site is about 15-25 feet above the water and looks toward the south. There is little vegetation (no trees), but the view is great. Snow covered mountains to the south (Beaver head Mountains). We found a really great site on a point which commanded a 270 degree view of the reservoir. It is about 20 feet higher than the reservoir providing excellent views. Our cost was $0.00 (05/00). This is a Bureau of Reclamation project and offers a variety of recreational activities including a number of free campsites. Reclamation projects began with the enactment of the Reclamation Act of 1902, which was established to stimulate the economic development of 16 sparsely populated western states. The Bureau of Reclamation, has been responsible for many federal projects that supply water and power for use in agricultural irrigation, industry, flood control, preservation of fish and wildlife, domestic needs, and recreation. Clark Canyon Reservoir is an example. Campers will enjoy this campground.
