Cheap, No Frills Campground Near Glacier

Conveniently located near the south side of Glacier National park, Summit Campground is a cheap, no-frills stop-over campsite. Vault toilets on-site. Camp spots have cement pads.

Site is very close to the freeway, which makes for easy access, but not quiet. Amazing views of the mountain across the highway. Good staging spot to head into Glacier.

Great inexpensive find!

At $10 a night you can’t beat this. Beautiful trees & quiet spacious camp sites…fire pits, water & bathrooms avlaliable. Grizzly was roaming Around our site but we didn’t see him. Someone was leaving food out. No Verizon service but I could get a signal out front near the memorial.

Nice and clean

Park is very nice with nice tent and rv sites. Fishing is great and the sunset over the lake is breathtaking. Swimming area is nice but is on opposite side of park. Showers are clean and hot. Play ground for the service children and biking allowed around park.

Great Spot on the Edge of Glacier

Found this campground by accident when we got lost on the way into Glacier National Park, which was a great thing since it had lots of openings and was just $10 a night. Considering we had such bad luck finding anything within the actual boundaries of Glacier, this was quite the find. Sites were clean, green, spacious, and very nice. Would definitely come back. Possibly a 5-star spot for the location alone if it had flush toilets and (instead of just the pit toilets) and/or a bit more going on. As it was, a nice, pretty spot to stop and spend the night on the way in or out of Glacier.

Ranger Review: UV Buff Dorado at Glacier National Park

Campground Review: This campsite is in the middle of East and West glacier. Which means it is ideal for a basecamp between adventures. Word to the wise, there are not many services between East and West Glacier. Try to grab grub on either side and bring beer/luxury items with you to the site. This site is right on Hwy 2, so it seems like it should be open year-round. But it isn't, so make sure to plan ahead if the site is open. There is a nice monument here if you just want to stop off while driving by and hit a vault toilet. The sites are quite and secluded for their close proximity to the highway. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Gear Review: As a Dyrt Ranger, I also get products to test and review in the field. I recently got to test Buff's UV Dorado while I was in Glacier. I was never excited about Buff's for their look, but this Dorado pattern is cute. I use my Buff to keep my hair out of my face and to cover my ears in a cold breeze (like the one on Triple Divide Pass). My eardrums hurt when they are exposed to a cold breeze, and it can be very uncomfortable. A Buff is great protection from these breezes, and is comfortable enough to be worn all day without a second thought.
