My wife and I stopped at Lake Shel-Oole Campground on our trip to Canada this summer (July 3rd). The campground is a bit dilapidated, but had several spots available that were easy to pull into. Some sites were pull through and others were back in. Most sites have at least electric and some are water/electric. Some sites are also 50amp. There is also a dump on site.
All sites are $25/night. Payment is on an honor system and drop cash into an envelope in a box near the entrance. The park says that it is under surveillance, but we did not see cameras. We saw one Toole County Sheriff's Deputy drive through the park while we were there.
I think we counted a total of five other rigs staying the night with us. If you have kids there's a playground nearby and a baseball field. There are also several walking trails.
We would definitely stay here again if we take the same route to Canada. Very convenient and quiet!

This campground has 3 separate loops. The loop we stayed at did not allow generators. This was campground is walking distance to the Ranger Station, Camp Store and best of all the lake. The sites are very roomy and included fire pits and picnic tables. The rangers do patrol the campground often to ensure guests are practicing best bear safe practices. You will see and possibly encounter wildlife. This is a great campground that allows you to visit some of the“less” busy parts of the park with ease.

We camped here over Labor day weekend 2019. The campground was on Blackfeet tribal land and the hosts were accommodating and friendly. We had site 15 and were surprised that we had no close neighbors and ample room for three large tents, a canopy, and our SUV. Quiet, serene, and other words come to mind. Sunsets by the fire were almost hypnotic.
There are fewer tourists in this part of the park, so you can really enjoy your time in the wilderness. We spent the first part of the day visiting waterfalls and hiking a couple of trails, we didn't run into too many people. Numerous day hiking options and a great way to start enjoying GNP!
Campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The campground is mostly shaded by trees which offer a bit of privacy. Flush toilets and access to running water is available. There is a Chalet that was built by the railway that now serves as a camp store and gift shop. Very “rustic” camping but it’s totally worth it.
The owners are wonderful people. He is a wealth of knowledge and willing to share.
Listen to him. He saved us from taking things to Canada that we shouldn't take but
were going to. The border patrol WILL search your motor home. They know all the
hiding places. We got searched for over an hour. Luckily, I listened and took his advice.
We will always stay at Lewis and Clark when in MT. We had a wonderful trip to Alaska
via Canada. It could have turned out much different had we not stopped in Shelby at
Lewis and Clark RV Park before crossing the border, and listened to this wonderful mans advice.
He saved me from fines and maybe jail. I am forever grateful.
Not that many people know of this campground, which can be very good if that is what you see. Off the road, 6 miles drive in on dirt road that suddenly ends. Small campground, close sites to each other and water access not as easy as other glacier sites. You look out a long flat meadow toward the triple divide area of the park and it is a 4 mile hike to the trail heads to go north, triple divide and red eagle lake or south to morning star lake and pitamahkin pass. No service close by, no motor homes either! So, for daily hiking you are an 8-mile round trip just to get to access the good stuff, flat and easy but it does add the miles each day.
