Looking across the lake at Hungry Horse Dam, Hungry Horse Project, Montana.

The Hungry Horse Project is located in western Montana about 20 miles northeast of Kalispell. Hungry Horse Dam is a 564-foot tall concrete arch, and was the third highest dam in the world when it was completed in 1953. The project plays an important role in meeting the growing needs for power in the Pacific Northwest. The project also provides a high degree of flood control while providing recreational benefits and fish and wildlife benefits.
