This was our favorite campsite at Glacier National Park. Why? The location was great, we could easily access Logan Pass hikes and it wasn't too far to drive to Many Glacier to see the sites & do the hikes without having to relocate. We brought along our inflatable boat and went for a float on St Mary Lake which is... More

Spent 4 nights at Rising Sun in mid-July. Tents and RVs are allowed but we were camped in the section that doesn't allow generators so it was nice and quiet. Our campsite was set back off the road a bit with lots of trees and plenty of flat space for tents. The bathrooms were clean and showers are available for... More

Rising Sun Campground doesn't fill up as fast at Many Glacier and is a very nice campground with clean bathrooms and easy access to showers. My favorite feature of the campground is the sun reflecting off the peak behind St. Mary lake - both in the morning and at night. Best campsites are below the bluffs - turn left when... More

We arrived at Glacier with no plans and no reservations. They had a few openings at Rising Sun Campground, thirteen miles from the St. Mary entrance. There is a general store which is well stocked, bathrooms in the campground and showers behind the general store. You have to purchase the showers at the store. The campground is nice and clean,...

Small campground without all of the huge RVs. Showers are right around the corner (for the low price of $2.56 for 8 minutes). All of the plots are level. Bathrooms are clean. Remember, there are bears so keep all of your "smellies" in your car.

Stayed at the Rising Sun cabins in Glacier National Park. If you are into the park, great location. But the cabins are just a place to stay. I did not expect to have a phone, or TV or any connection, but I did expect to be able to sit outside and enjoy the awesome view. If you book the cabins,... More

This was a great location for several nights' stay to explore the east side of the park. We had a reservation at St Mary campground, but when we snagged a site here, cancelled the other, as this one was much more scenic. It was a great location to head back to Logan Pass (on our trip over the Going to... More

We stayed at this campground because we didn't have a reservation anywhere else! We drove up from Yellowstone and ALL of the campgrounds in the park were full by time we got there....around 7pm. We ended up spending a night outside of the park at Johnson's campground which was fine. We got up early packed up and got a site... More

Pros: -Smallish campground usually means less noise -Has a shuttle stop at a camp store. Cons: -Compared to Two Medicine and Many Glacier (other campgrounds on the eastern side of the park that we stayed at) this campground had FAR more mosquitoes even though you couldn't see the lake from the campground. -People had fed the squirrels and one even...

This was a very nice campground typical of National Park campgrounds.. Small so that helps keep down the noise. Bears were active in the campground a ranger told us. A young black bear had been walking in the campground during the daytime. In fact we saw on on the cliff from our campsite. Walked over to St. Mary Lake and... More
