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.
Such a great spot right in Apgar!! Primitive spots and first come first serve but the greatest little spot! clean bathrooms. No showers.
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.
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.
Apgar is easy to find and seems like there is always someplace for you to camp or park your RV. Be sure to bring your bicycles as there are many places to bike around in. They have boat and kayak rentals to take on the lake if you happen to not have any. There is a friendly staff with numerous places to eat and find souvenirs of your travels. Definitely recommended for your first stop in Glacier.
A small campground opened seasonally at the south end of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park. The lImIted spaces are tucked in the trees bIt are a short walk to the beautiful lake.
Apgar sites are great! The forest in which the tents can be built is lovely. Anti-bear storage has to be shared between sites. Very close to Apgar village and Lake McDonald, which is a pretty nice place to relax and enjoy the views renting bikes or canoes. Also, a WiFi spot at the visitor center is not too far from there. Quick access to West Glacier too, in case you need gas or some camping gear. Loved this place!
There are plenty of camping sites here. There’s Loop A, B, C, D, E. Busy during the summer so get there early as you can. That goes for hikes as well, if you don’t like crowds get up as early as you can. You see lots more animals that way too! Very family friendly area with Lake McDonald views and the Sun Road.
To be honest, this wasn't our first pick, but it ended up being great. Clean sites and bathrooms. It's a huge campground with tons of loops, which I usually shy away from due to crowds, but everyone seemed to respect quiet hours and there weren't too many whiny kids. Great biking trails throughout the area and you are in a great location to visit Lake McDonald and Apgar Village.
