Great campground to experience Glacier National Park

This campground was breathtaking. At the base of the mountains. In my opinion, of the campgrounds we drove by, this one was by far the best for unobstructed views of the mountains. It was so beautiful and peaceful at night as well.

The hosts/store clerks were pleasant and helpful. To my knowledge…

Clean Quiet Safe Friendly

Pulled in late evening twilight. Nestled in a hill pocket. Unassuming looks but what matters is the vibe and amenities for the price. New owners. Sites are tidy. Full and partial hookups. Sewer dump. Shining star is the bathroom and shower house. Clean. Updated and hot hot water if you like a nice…

HOT. Blazing. Did I say Hot?

We stayed at St. Mary's for 1 night, then got up early the next day and found a spot with a tree at Rising sun. Many of the tent sites at St. Mary's are out in the OPEN prairie and so very blazing hot in July and August. Remember the sun doesn't set up here until 10pm. Our neighbors washed dishes…

A decent place to stop over on your trip to or return from Canada

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…

Just okay

Honestly, I probably will not stay on this side of the park when I return to Glacier. The campsites were very rocky and uneven. There were pads for tents but unless you have a very small tent, it's not going to fit. Add to that, the area is very exposed to winds and dramatic weather changes. The…

Did the job

Having stayed at the West glacier KOA the night before, this was a bit of a let down. We were in a tent site. It was very unclear where we were supposed to park. There was a pool that was clean and a picnic shelter that served pancakes in the morning.

I loved this campground. Great size to sites and they have dimensions on their reservation website.

They had new bear boxes for every 4 sites this year with extra around bathrooms. Make sure you keep your camp bearproof as rangers will make sure it is.
