CAMPING IN GLACIER PARK- WEST SIDE

Glacier Park Campgrounds- Lake McDonald Area

  
1. Apgar Campground                                                                                      
Glacier National Park Campgrounds
Located near the West Entrance of Glacier National Park at Apgar Village, the Apgar Campground is the largest campground in Glacier National Park.  This beautiful campground is just a few hundred yards from the famous Lake McDonald, Glacier Park's largest lake.  Apgar Campground is found at the beginning of the west side of the world-renowned Going To The Sun Road, which is the gateway to the interior of Glacier National Park as well as the only road that actually runs through Glacier Park. 

The Apgar Village area is regarded as the "headquarters" of the west side of Glacier National Park, which makes the Apgar Campground a very convenient location.  Apgar Village offers casual dining, gift shops, visitor center, motel, general store, boat rentals, canoe rentals, kayak rentals, a public boat dock, a great beach and more.  Located on the Going To The Sun Road, Apgar provides a free shuttle service for those of you interested in heading to the famed Logan Pass (and all the other Going To The Sun Road Turnouts) but don't want to drive your vehicle. Apgar is also a great place to book a Glacier Park Red Bus Tour or guided horseback ride.

Apgar Campground is about 10 miles from the iconic Lake McDonald Lodge, and about 16 miles from the ever-popular Trail of the Cedars and Avalanche Lake.  These attractions are along the Going To The Sun Road, and are a very quick, easy (and level) drive from this popular Glacier National Park campground.

  2. Avalanche Campground                                                                                 
Glacier National Park Campgrounds
Avalanche Campground is another Glacier National Park campground that is located in the Lake McDonald Area.  Directly next to the popular Trail of the Cedars and Avalanche Lake trail head along the Going To The Sun Road, the Avalanche GNP Campground has 50 sites, and only allow trailer-truck combinations and/or RVs up to 26 feet in length.  This Glacier campground marks the beginning of the amazing ascent of the Going To The Sun Road as it works its way eastward up the west side of the Continental Divide eventually reaching Logan Pass.  Avalanche Campground is the closest Glacier National Park campground to the west side of the Continental Divide and Logan Pass, and is approximately 16 miles east of West Entrance to Glacier National Park.

Just about 6 miles to the west of Avalanche Campground in Glacier Park is the famous Lake McDonald Lodge, and another 9 miles to the west along the Going To The Sun Road is Apgar Village.  This GNP campground is heavily forested with huge cedar trees, hemlocks, black cottonwoods and ferns.  The vegetation surrounding the Avalanche Campground reminds us of the movie "Jurassic Park".  It truly is a beautiful area of Glacier Park and is a popular Glacier Park campground.

Throughout the summer the rangers at Avalanche Campground in Glacier Park provide a fascinating evening program at the Avalanche Amphitheater which many visitors who are camping in Glacier National Park seem to really enjoy.

Glacier National Park CampgroundsFish Creek is the second largest campground in Glacier National Park, and is located about 4.5 miles from the west entrance to Glacier Park.  Located very close to Lake McDonald, this Glacier National Park campground provides a fair amount of privacy for trailers and tents alike due to the high number of pine trees throughout this Glacier Park campground, and some these Glacier Park campsites have views of lake.  Only a few miles north of Apgar Village, this popular Glacier campground is located near the Camas Road, and marks the gateway to the Inside North Forth Road that takes you all the way to the Polebridge Ranger Station

Fish Creek Campground is only one of two Glacier National Park campgrounds in that take reservations.

  4. Sprague Creek Campground                                                                         
Glacier National Park CampgroundsSprague Creek Campground is one of the smallest campgrounds in Glacier National Park, and because of the design of this Glacier campground, towed units are not allowed.  This beautiful Glacier National Park campground is located about 9 miles west of the West Entrance to Glacier Park, next to the southeast shore of Lake McDonald.  There's lots of shade available in this wonderful little Glacier Park campground as it sits in a heavily forested area along the Going To The Sun Road.  However, because it is located so close to the Going To The Sun Road, unfortunately Glacier Park campers will definitely hear the traffic. 

Only one mile to the east of Sprague Creek Campground is the historic Lake McDonald Lodge, which is an extremely popular Glacier Park attraction.  In addition to the Lake McDonald Lodge, there is a restaurant, general store, Red Bus Tours, boat rentals, wooden boat tours,and more.  the upside of Sprague Creek Campground in Glacier Park being located directly along the Going To The Sun Road, is that there is a free shuttle service that will take you anywhere along the Going To The Sun Road, such as Apgar VillageLake McDonald Lodge and Logan Pass.

Glacier Park Campgrounds: North Fork Area
(Glacier Park West Side)

  5. Bowman Lake Campground                                                                           
Glacier National Park CampgroundsBowman Lake Campground is located in the northwest section of Glacier National Park known as the Polebridge Area (also known as the North Fork Area), and is a primitive vehicle Glacier National Park campground.  This means that there are only pit toilets, no sinks, and potable water is drawn from a spigot.  This remote Glacier National Park campground is 32.5 miles from the West Entrance of Glacier National Park, and is found at the end of a very bumpy and dusty gravel road.  Because of this rough road, RVs and truck - trailer combinations are not recommended.

The upside for those camping in Glacier Park is that the Bowman Lake Campground is located next to the shore of the gorgeous Bowman Lake, which is the gateway to the remote and beautiful Northern Wilderness of Glacier National Park, which takes overnight backpackers to remote places such as Brown PassHole In The Wall and Boulder Pass.  This is an extremely popular entrance point (end exit point) for overnight backpackers exploring the northern wilderness.  The campground is very pretty and provides fairly nice privacy between campsites, and Bowman Lake is extremely scenic.  Kayaking, boating and canoeing is quite popular on Bowman Lake (10 horse power maximum).  If you're wanting to experience the "next level" of peace and quiet during your Glacier National Park camping experience, this is the perfect Glacier campground for you!  Not many visitors make it up here during their Glacier Park Vacation, and there are no paved highways within 30+ miles!
________________________________________________________________
Bowman Lake Campground, Glacier National Park

Location: About 32.5 miles north of the West Entrance to Glacier National Park, in the heart of the remote North Fork - Polebridge Area.  It is 6.4 miles northeast of the Polebridge Ranger Station.

  6. Kintla Lake Campground                                                                                 
Glacier National Park CampgroundsKintla Lake Campground is the most northern vehicle Glacier National Park campground in Glacier National Park, and is about 40 miles from the West Entrance. Much of this road is a bumpy, gravel road, therefore RVs and tow units are not recommended.  Kintla Lake is located in the heart of the remote North Fork Area (also known as the Polebridge Area) of Glacier Park, and this rarely filled remote Glacier campground is ideal for those Glacier Park campers seeking the highest level of solitude and peacefulness during their Glacier National Park camping experience.  

Kintla Lake Campground rests at the foot of Kintla Lake, a stunningly beautiful mountain lake that is the gateway into the remote and beautiful Northern Wilderness of Glacier National Park.  The famous Boulder Pass Trail begins at this Glacier National Park campground, and follows the north shore of Kintla Lake and Upper Kintla Lake into the depths of the Northern Wilderness of Glacier Park, taking you to Boulder PassHole In The Wall and beyond.  This remote area of Glacier National Park is an overnight backpacker's paradise.  Boats with motors are not allowed on Kintla Lake, but canoes, kayaks and row boats are allowed.

Regarded as a primitive Glacier Park campground, there is only a hand pump for potable water, and pit toilets.  Being about 14.5 miles from Polebridge, there are very few amenities available at the Kintla Lake Campground.  The campsites are separated by large logs.

  7. Logging Creek Campground                                                                          
Glacier National Park CampgroundsLogging Creek Campground is an extremely primitive and remote GNP campground that is found along the rugged Inside North Fork Road in the remote northwest section of Glacier National Park known as the North Fork - Polebridge Area.  VERY FEW people ever see this remote GNP campground as very few people ever drive the Inside North Fork Road.  So if you're looking for the ultimate level of solitude during your Glacier National Park camping experience, you've found your Glacier campground.  Located 9 miles south of the Polebridge Ranger Station, this dirt road is quite rough, winding and "interesting", therefore RVs and tow units are not recommended.  There is no potable water available at this GNP campground, but there is a pit toilet.

The Logging Creek Campground marks the trail head of Logging Creek Trail, which takes backpackers into the remote Logging Lake Area of Glacier National Park.

  8.Quartz Creek Campground                                                                              
Glacier National Park CampgroundsQuartz Creek Campground is located just under 6 miles south of the Polebridge Ranger Station along the rugged Inside North Fork Road of Glacier National Park.  This remote road found along the inside border of the northwest section of Glacier Park is a very rough, dirt road with few pullouts and is very winding.  Because of these challenging road conditions, RVs and tow units are not recommended.  Just like the Logging Creek Campground, you are really getting out there, so if you're looking for the "ultimate level" of solitude while camping in Glacier National Park, you've found your Glacier Park campground- that is if your vehicle will make it there!  There is no potable water available, but there are pit toilets.

The highlight of the Quartz Creek Campground is the 6.2 mile (one way) hike to the foot of Quartz Lake.  This is a very nice hike into a gorgeous remote mountain lake.

CAMPING IN GLACIER PARK- EAST SIDE

Glacier Park Campgrounds

  9. St. Mary Campground                                                                                      
Glacier National Park CampgroundsThe St. Mary Campground is conveniently located only 0.5 miles from the East Entrance of Glacier National Park and the St. Mary Visitor Center, and is the largest Glacier National Park campground on the east side of Glacier Park.  St. Mary Campground is also one of only 2 campgrounds in Glacier Park that accept reservations, and is the only Glacier National Park campground that takes reservations on the east side of Glacier Park.  The St. Mary Entrance marks the gateway to the world famous Going To The Sun Road, which is the only road that runs through Glacier National Park and is by far one of the most popular attractions in Glacier Park.

Another convenience of this Glacier National Park campground is the fact that it is just under a mile from the town of St. Mary, which offers several restaurants, a general store, a camp store, a grocery store, gas, hotels and cabins, and more.  And being so close to the St. Mary Visitor Center allows you to take advantage of the free shuttle service that takes you to all of the popular Going To The Sun Road turnouts as well as Logan Pass and the Logan Pass Visitor Center.

The St. Mary Campground does not provide much shade, but the openness gives Glacier National Park campers great views of the Glacier Park mountains located in the St. Mary area, and there are a large number of aspens throughout this campground in Glacier Park that turn an incredible bright gold in the fall.

HELPFUL TIP: 
Because the St. Mary Campground accepts reservations, this is a great place to camp while trying to get a campsite at the Many Glacier Area, which is about 20 miles north of St. Mary.  The Many Glacier Area is known as "The Heart of Glacier Park" and is very popular, but the Many Glacier Campground in Glacier National Park does not accept reservations.  Instead, it's all on a "first come, first serve" basis.  So we recommend that you reserve a spot the night before at St. Mary Campground, then early the next morning drive to Many Glacier Campground and get your spot before it fills up for the day!

  10. Rising Sun Campground                                                                                
Glacier National Park CampgroundsRising Sun Campground is located along the Going To The Sun Road in Glacier National Park, just across the road from the incredible St. Mary Lake and is just over 6 miles from the East Entrance to Glacier National Park at St. Mary.  Its location is amazing because this is where the Glacier National Park mountains really begin to rise into the heavens. 

Aside from the fantastic scenery, the Rising Sun Campground in Glacier National Park is also conveniently located next to a general store (also a camp store), restaurant, showers and free Shuttle access to the Going To The Sun Road.  There is even a really nice 5.2 mile (one way) hiking trail located right next to this GNP campground that takes you to the beautiful Otokomi Lake.   And just around the corner from the Rising Sun Campground along the Going To The Sun Road is the Wild Goose Island Turnout, which is undoubtedly the most photographed landscape in the entire park.  If you'd like to enjoy a tour of the famous St. Mary Lake on an historic wooden boat, the boat dock is right across the road from this wonderful GNP campground.

The Rising Sun Campground in Glacier Park is the closest "east side" campground to Logan Pass, the highest point along the Going To The Sun Road and one of the most popular Glacier National Park attractions.

  11. Many Glacier Campground                                                                            
Glacier National Park CampgroundsThe Many Glacier Campground, located in the world famous Many Glacier Area of Glacier National Park is our personal favorite of all the campgrounds in Glacier National Park, and we're not alone in feeling this way.  This is one of the most popular campgrounds in Glacier National Park.  The Many Glacier Area is known and "The Heart of Glacier National Park" because of its incredible beauty, world class hiking trails, and the historic Many Glacier Hotel.  This popular area is a "must see" for Glacier National Park visitors, and the Many Glacier Campground is the perfect Glacier campground for you to stay at while discovering this amazing area.  If you want the ultimate feeling of what camping in Glacier National Park should be like, the Many Glacier Campground is the Glacier National Park campground for you!

The Many Glacier campground in Glacier National Park is located in some of the most scenic landscape in the world, where towering mountains surround you in nearly all directions.  The Glacier Park campground itself is very beautiful, with just enough openness for you to enjoy the amazing Grinnell Point towering directly above you to the south, and Mount Henkel to the north.  The magical Swiftcurrent Creek runs along the campground to the south, which adds to the already breathtaking beauty.

This incredible Glacier National Park campground sits right next to the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn, which has a restaurant, showers, camp store and gift shop, as well as a motel and cabins.  This is also where the trail heads are located for the iconic hikes to Iceberg LakeSwiftcurrent Pass and Ptarmigan Tunnel.  Just up the road about a mile or so is the historic Many Glacier Hotel, and even closer is the trail head to the Grinnell Glacier Trail, which is one of our favorite hikes in Glacier National Park.

HELPFUL TIP:
Because of the popularity of the Many Glacier Campground, and because it does not accept reservations, getting a spot can sometimes get a bit tricky.  What we recommend is that you first get reservations for the St. Mary Campground, which is about 20 miles down the road at the East Entrance to Glacier National Park, and the following morning get up really early and get to the Many Glacier Campground as quickly as possible and get a campsite before these popular Glacier Park campsites once again fill up for the day.

Camping in Glacier National Park,  whether it's with family or friends, gives everyone involved an experience that is very special, positive and memorable.  And whether the weather in Glacier Park is perfect during your stay or it rains or snows the whole time, the memories of this Glacier Park camping trip are priceless and something each of the campers involved will share and carry with them forever- and more than likely in a very positive light.  And camping in such a beautiful and scenic place, and knowing there's these gigantic mountains all around you in the darkness as you sleep, as if they are "sleeping" along side you- along with the grizzly bears and all the other wildlife, is an incredible feeling indeed.  There's something about hearing distant waterfalls or the sound of a nearby mountain stream, or the wind through the canyons while laying in your tent, trailer or RV, or seeing the amazing blanket of stars above you in a crystal clear sky, that makes camping in Glacier National Park a very magical experience that you'll cherish forever.
