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.
Nice bathrooms, hot showers, hot tub was good and hot, the pool was frigid. Food and ice cream at the campground was tasty. Sites are a decent size — we were able to get our REI Kingdom 8 with garage on our site, park our car, and still had room to move around just fine. WiFi is mostly unusable from any of the campsites.
I loved the trails around the campground. There were several trails that lead to the river and lake. Our site was very exposed but close to bathrooms. The shower was very nice but the bathroom was fairly small. Nice staff and camp store with a coffee shop inside. Very close to the East Glacier entrance.
We stayed here while on a hiking trip to Glacier National Park. We stayed in one of the small cabins, but they had RV and tent sites as well. They had a small shop with snacks/food, and souvenirs. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice. The cabin had a nice porch with swings. While small on the inside, it had everything we needed. It was good proximity to hiking within the park.
The staff are friendly. The pizza is delicious. The cabins are clean. The pool is fun and the hottub is unique. The view from the campground is amazing. It's so close to the national park.
The bathrooms were cleaned frequently, but they still had a weird smell. The bathroom at the pool had a strong poo smell all the time. It was so windy that having a fire was challenging. Some of the sites don't offer much privacy, but it's a KOA so that's expected.
It set a new standard for my KOA expectations.
KOAs can be counted on for having many sites available at about the highest cost ever. East Glacier/ st Mary’s is no exception.
But, you can make a reservation and be assured of having a site in this remote area of Montana.
The campground has a pool and a puzza parlor that delivers and a store and laundry,and lots of noise due to the hundreds of sites.
This KOA has been the best one I've stayed at yet! Beautiful spots by a little creek with lots of wildlife (moose, fox, etc.) The groundskeeper is awesome with helping out if there are any problems with outsiders using the pool and the restrooms so very nice! People at the front desk were helpful and very informative.
Very nice with level campsites and nice swimming pool with hot tube. Personal are nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again
My husband and I found ourselves trekking the 6 miles in to a backcountry site in Glacier. Our first comment at the nearest climb was "how about we go back to St Mary KOA?" haha we were dreaming of returning to this campground at the end. FANTASTIC campground. A beautiful stream and little nature trail border the tent sites. Sites are busy in the summer, but no more so then you would find directly inside the park boundaries. Just outside the park boundaries you get the picturesque mountain views all from the luxury of a hot tub, pool, and homeade pizza delivered right to your site! Beer, wine, an ice cream bar, and lots of camp gear and souvenirs sold in the gift shop. Fantastic way to spend some evenings in glacier whether returning from day-hikes or showering off grime from the backcountry. View from the hot tub below.
We stayed at campsite G17. It was right near the entrance, so there was a lot of traffic. In the morning a fox came right up to our site. The pool was great with a hot tub and splash pad. The views were gorgeous and our kids loved the playground. We even ordered pizza and had it delivered from the main office. A little pricey, but great place!
