My first camping trip at Glacier National Park - amazing! The campgrounds are clean, bathrooms are conveniently placed so they are a close walk, with a grey water sink as well. There are sufficient bear bins at each campground as well, with enough space. Geographically, the camp grounds are on the 'centre' of Glacier, so you are surrounded by breathtaking... More

This is about the campground, not the park. Apgar is the busiest, but there is no reservations or any aid with finding a spot. It's drive around till someone is pulling out. Self-register, $20 nite. There is a bathroom in each loop with flush toilets and cold running sink water, and a couple water faucets per loop. There are NO... More

Very nice very small campground with 10 or so sites with a view of Lake McDonald. If those are filled you can find a few inside the loop. If those are filled then you will have to use the ones near the main road, which can be noisy. This campground is close to Avalanche Trail and Trail of the Cedars.... More

It can get busy, but is a lovely spot to camp, well designed, secured, clean showers and toilets, and the location is just like out of a movie. Be aware that during the high season is hard to get a spot, so plan ahead and be there early. IF a group is traveling, is good to buy a yearly pass... More

The Going to the Sun Road up to the campground was perhaps the most beautiful road I have ever travelled. We stayed at the Fish Creek Campground, which is at the end of the trail. Try to get in the A loop to be close to the showers, if you are in any other loop, it could be quite difficult.... More

This is a very busy campground area, even in late May/early June. It is a self-service site without power - although there may be other sections with power. We found it very expensive in comparison to other campgrounds. In fact, the park was way more expensive than those outside the park, especially as we had no power. The setting was... More

We had made reservations so were in section C. If you make reservations sites C101-118 are pretty flat and have shade. C has the only reservable sites. The rest are first come. The sites are a little on the tight side. We were in C-111 with a 27 foot 5th wheel and truck and we were fine but still tight... More

We stayed at St. Mary for three nights during out family vacation. The positives - you can reserve sites, amazing views, reasonable prices, well-spaced sites, free showers, interpretive programs, friendly staff. The negatives - minimal shade unless you are in the sites closest to the river (Section A), site pads in need of maintenance, and some of the washroom facilities... More

We stayed here 4 nights. The biggest disappointment was the size and quantity of the bear boxes. Food and utensils all have to be secured so we spent a lot of time loading and unloading the car because not all sites have bear boxes, and our site did not have a very big box. There weren't many trees so it... More

Incredibly views, saw fireworks while the thunderstorm abated just long enough for the spectacular fireworks show. Campsites are nice and spaced out. Toilets are clean. Got refunded for the night I did not stay coz of change in plans. Enjoyed the overnight downpour and lightening show from mother nature. Cooked ramen and tea in the morning and enjoyed the quite...
