Trains

This spot is beautiful but the train is SO close and loud. No one in my group slept more than 30 minutes at a time and the ground would shake when the train went by. Light sleeper or not you will be woken up constantly. This park would be great for a day visit but definitely would not camp here again.

Clean and quiet

It was a nice stay for a couple days. Showers and bathroom were clean and front desk was very nice. Seems like more people live there than visit though. Tent sites were very small and bunched together. Price was descent.

Wow!

Yes it is spendy! Having said that, I had a hard time accepting this is a KOA. Meticulously landscaped, super clean, organized, friendly and helpful staff, great excellent amenities, location, location, location! If I wasn't in the sleeper of a semi truck bouncing around as its being driven by another, I'd give a more detailed description. Trust me, 67 years of age and thousands of miles traveled (RV) -, this was WOW!

Good location

Nice campground, lots of sites, solid wifi. Walking distance to a fun coffee shop. There is often a farmers market in Columbia Falls. Great location to explore Glacier National Park. Nice clean bathrooms. Can get very busy in the summer, some sites feel a little close together. A little pricey for how crowded the sites can be.

Hidden Gem

Happen to run across this spot back in August of 2020 just driving around. Luck would have it I had great neighbors in the campgrounds. The ground is all rock but easily drivable once alongside the river. The entrance is the tricky part. If you have low ground clearance you may have an issue but I saw people that made it in regular sedans. Over all great spot and would camp there again for sure. Plenty of spots but can fill up in the summer very quickly.

Incredibly beautiful right near the lake.

The most beautiful & colorful water rocks I've ever seen. Camp spots are kind of close but you don't really see your neighbors too much. Wonderful Ranger Talk in the amphitheatre. We had to leave early due to fires (summer of 2018). Cannot wait to return. Great restaurant & gift shop!!

Awesome campgrond

Great campground. Full camp store, great restaurant, decent showers. Sites a tad close together but over all great vibe. Book early.

Camp right outside the park

Decent camp grounds. Lots of spots however somewhat close together. Showers and restroom are okay. staff is very polite. Restaurant next door is handy and very good.

Great basecamp

Whether you’ve arrived on foot, by car or by rail, Apgar places you in an excellent position to take advantage of what Glacier has to offer. This is particularly true for first time visitors, and those seeking to avail themselves of regular access to park amenities, which are predominantly concentrated here in West Glacier. Apgar is walking distance from the Apgar Visitor Center and park shuttles, as well as Apgar Village, camp store, equipment rentals, etc. I was privileged to camp here near the end of season, and fortunate to arrive with spaces open, and the adjacent loop closed for the season and maintenance. Traffic near the entrance can be relatively heavy in the morning, drivers trying to get a jump on limited parking for hikes elsewhere, leading up to checkout.

Situated near the southern outlet of Lake McDonald into McDonald Creek above the middle fork of the Flathead, it worked well as a great jumping off point to explore landmarks on the West shore like the Apgar Fire Lookout tower and Fish Creek camp, and then push North and East into the park visiting the Lake McDonald Lodge as you climb toward Logan Pass. Recommend getting here around checkout, it fills up fast on a first come first serve basis. Same for the shuttles, particularly if you’re planning a longer outing like the Highline Trail. Parking fills up quickly at Logan Pass, shuttles fill up quickly here. Pay attention to schedule changes for both directions of your journey, give yourself time to enjoy the park, and get to the shuttle stop before the last shuttle.

Pros: Newly remodeled hot showers, which are apparently free to use for through hikers as well. Well maintained sites, helpful host staff. Close to park infrastructure and Lake McDonald

Cons: Busy, fills up quickly. Farther away from the park’s major trails.
