We have stayed in Many Glacier and Avalanche Creek but this is our favorite campsite in the park because of its proximity to Lake Mcdonald as well as Apgar village.
Peaceful campground with easy walking access to Lake Mcdonald. Some camp sites are even lakefront. Nothing gets better than watching the sunset while sitting on the shore of Lake McDonald.
Bathrooms are good for a campsite and there are water spigots near every campsite (usually shared between two neighboring sites).
There are centrally located ranger talks most nights.
We ended up at Doris Creek while searching for a campground that was close to Glacier but not in the park (since we didn't make any reservations). It's a decent campground with nice lake access. The sites seem to be catered more towards RVS and campers than tents (we pitched our tent on a patch of gravel) but the ground was level. Pit toilets are available and each campsite has a picnic table.
On our last day in Glacier we headed over to Bowman Lake in hopes of finding a campsite. Despite it being the end of June we got there at 2 PM and found plenty of sites open. We had out pick of the little. The sites are all great. Lots of trees to use for hammocks, good picnic tables, and nice fire pits. The campground only has pit toilets, but the secluded area makes up for it. This is the place to go to avoid the regular Glacier camping crowds. The campground is about a 5 minute walk to the lake and just a short drive form Polebridge. Absolutely gorgeous and my favorite place to camp in Glacier.
We stayed at 3 different sites in Fish Creek due to it being so full. The only way we could get reservations was if we moved each day. But all of our sites were great. Fish creek sits in a forested area and is quite a large campground. Several large loops. The bathrooms are nice and it was pretty quiet at night (except for the one night where a thunderstorm rolled through). The campground is within reasonable distance to Apgar Village and Lake McDonald. Definitely a good place to use as home base if you're hoping to explore the park.
We camped here on the last night of our Flathead area trip and I have to say this site was easily my favorite place we stayed. We pulled in around 2 PM on a weekend and had no problem finding a spot. This campground works best for tents but you could pull in with a small trailer. The short walk to the river makes for great swimming and picture taking. There is some highway noise but it is not a heavily used road. Would highly recommend this campground.
This is a nice convenient place to stay close to glacier but we were disappointed by how much high way noise there is even through the night. We were also disappointed to find out that there are no fire pits except for one community one. If we had seen this online a head of time we would have looked at other places.
very convenient to glacier national park and true back to nature campground. Easy to check in with friendly customer service. Sites are in alot of trees without any lights. Hills and rocks on your walk to the showers and restrooms. Very busy here , be prepared to wait for showers.
Rained every day here and some mud in campground. Peaceful here and quiet at night. Camping for all ages and campers. Price was reasonable and they have laundry facilities.
The location was excellent to glacier park and food.
