Sprague Creek campground is sandwiched between Lake McDonald and Going-to-the-Sun-Road.

for bicyclists or backpackers. The beauty of Lake McDonald is marred by the campground's
proximity to the highway - traffic, including motorcycles, is both visible and audible well into the
night. The campsite is not convenient to any trailheads so if you want to hike, plan to drive first.
