Glacier National Park Campgrounds

Can anyone recommend a campground in or near Glacier National Park in Montana? Many thanks!

I'll let you know sometime after the 23rd of this month. We are set to arrive in Glacier on Monday after next. We're staying at one of the NP CGs.

I've checked my mapping program and it shows a mess of CG in and around Klaispell, MT. There are also many references to Glacier CGs over on the Escapees and RVNet webpages. You may want to check them out. And as D and M On The Road pointed out to me.... use a search engine to find potential CGs. Of course I think the best way is to do what you've done..... ask for references. That way you may end up getting some first hand reports.

Happy Travels to you.... HamRad

Yep, I can recommend several campgrounds around the West side of Glacier. If you don't need, or want, full hookups there are 2 campgrounds in the park, Apgar and Fish Creek. Both are beautiful, I think that Fish Creek is prettier but may be a little predjudice since we are the campground host here. As for the private campgrounds outside the park, I recommend North American RV park, it is about 4 miles from the entrance to the park on Hwy 2. There are several others also located along Hwy 2, Mountain Meadows is nice and so is Glacier campground. There is a KOA but it is expensive compared to the others and in my opinion no nicer. If you have any other questions feel free to email me.

Thanks so much for the recommendations! I have a Trailer Life Directory, etc., but since this is our first trip I thought I would like something tried and true. Can you tell I'm a tad nervous? I'll just be glad to get this trip underway so that I can calm down! I don't think we're ready for not having full hook-ups yet but I'll try one of the other campgrounds you recommended.

HamRad, we're leaving the same day that you are arriving but thanks for the kind offer of info!

Don't stay at the KOA in Whitefish/Kalispel. The sites are long but narrow and on hills, we broke our hitch on our TT trying to get into the site, with them directing no less and they wouldn't pay for the repair.

The CG was nice, there was plenty to do if you have kids or want to just hang out there but with the hitch mishap and how they handled it, we were NOT impressed. We were told from the repair shop the CG sends a lot of business their way.
