Hebgen Lake is a lake located in Southwest Montana. It is well known for an earthquake which occurred nearby on August 17, 1959, forming Quake Lake which is located immediately downstream.


Hebgen Lake and the surrounding area offer many recreational activities: camping, fishing, boating, and hiking. Campgrounds include Rainbow Point and Cherry Creek. Rainbow Point is the largest campground on the lake, offering four "loops." Each loop contains approximately 20 campsites. Each campsite can accommodate a full-size camper and one or two vehicles.
