Base Camp

I don't often "car-camp" but I will here. It's a good place to stay in order to be close to starting off a day of adventures in the park. This is a large campground so there will be plenty of other people but with the dense forest and small sites it is usually pleasant. You can walk to the amphitheater for ranger talks and then take in sunset on the lake. Tent and Rv sites but no power or sewer hookups, just a dump station

Great centrally located campground!

Beautiful campground and a short walk to Lake McDonald. Shuttles available at this campground. We were in loop A as close as you can get to the lake which is within walking distance. No traffic noise near our site, A55. Got there early with no RSVP and had no trouble getting into a spot. Must keep camps maintained and items put away at all times due to bear activity or you will get warned or fined. Shops and visitors center within walking distance. Had the best time with family camping, hiking and paddle boarding! No showers.

Well Maintained Forested Campground

Apgar is one of the first camp grounds you can stay at in Glacier. The campsites have platforms for tents, fire rings most come with adjustable grates and there are drinking water pumps dotting the campground. The bathrooms were extremely clean and Lake McDonald isn't too far away. It was a great spot to camp for one night. The only down side was our campsite was close to the road so we heard traffic drive past often. My puppy also enjoyed himself there immensely so don't leave your dog at home!

Beautiful but busy

Campground is a short walk to Lake McDonald (beautiful)and Apgar Village. There are no electrical hookups and no showers. Beautiful wooded campground, large sites, and typically not too noisy. Best bet is to get to the campground early in the morning to get a spot as it is first come first serve and fills up pretty quickly. We typically find a spot where campers are up and getting packed up, place a tag on the site marker and come back after 12 to set up. You can run over to Apgar village if you want to rent canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, or motor boats by the hour.

Loved it

This camp ground had the bare minimum but I loved it. Not a huge campground which made it nicer. Quiet and clean. Nice little village area with a restaurant, store, rentals. Lake is gorgeous!!!

private sites

Out of the three campgrounds we stayed in at Glacier NP this was the most private with tall trees and space between sites. Alot of hikes close by including the trail of the cedars to avalanche lake a 5.7 well trafficked hike with a beautiful view. Not alot of animals this far down but we did manage to see a few deer on the trails. No showers but the bathrooms are nice.

July stay at Apgar campground

Such a great spot right in Apgar!! Primitive spots and first come first serve but the greatest little spot! clean bathrooms. No showers.

pretty but noisy

and crowded. I had the misfortune to camp next to a noisy family. no showers at this campground. but the shuttle for the road to the sun stops at this campground.


My husband and I have been doing a lot of camping and we found this spot in Apgar to be perfect. Plan to arrive early though places fill up from what we saw within 30 minutes or less of being vacated.

Clean and Friendly

Apgar is a large campsite right next to the Apgar village and Lake McDonald. We spent the day at the lake and enjoyed a nice dinner at the campsite. Bathrooms were clean with flush toilets and waste stations. Reasonably priced. Find a site before the evening as all of the campsites at Glacier fill up quickly.
