We found this lovely little campground by accident. We were camping at the St. Mary KOA on the east side of Glacier NP and had to be evacuated due to the Reynolds Creek Fire. We needed a campground quickly and relatively close by, and when I called they had dry camping sites available and then we could move into a site with electric and water the following day. The site hostess was so helpful and kind. The campground is located directly off of HWY 2 just west of Marias Pass in a large meadow with trees surrounding it. The dry camping area is quite large and we could have parked wherever we wanted. In all honesty we preferred that set up to the site with hookups since you had all this space and were not right on top of your neighbor! But the site with hookups was nice also, just very close to the rigs on either side of you. There are also sites in the trees which looked quite nice but they were all reserved. There is no sewer available but we did notice the campground staff going around and pumping some of the RV's black tanks who were obviously staying awhile. There is also a dump station. Bathroom was clean with showers. There is also wifi on site, but only at a central hub. Cell phone service was not available so you can use their pay phone for free, even long distance! We would definitely consider using this campground again. It is close to Two Medicine and East Glacier, but a little farther away from the west and far east side of the park.

We have stayed at this KOA before, eleven years ago and were pleasantly surprised by the recent upgrades to the campground. The setting is gorgeous with awesome views directly into the St. Mary valley of Glacier from your campsite! The main "lodge" has been expanded with a large camp store of not only tourist fare but groceries and RV supplies. The bathrooms are very clean and have a western log cabin theme which is neat. They have also recently remodeled the laundry room which is quite large and roomy with all new washers and dryers. There is a wide variety of sites to choose from ranging from no hookups all the way up to full hookups and nicer sites for large RV's. The sites are close together but there are picnic tables and fire rings. The campground has a pool and hot tub as well as a large playground. We loved the easy access to the east side of Glacier! I must also commend the staff because due to the Reynolds Creek Fire that broke out this July, the campground had to be evacuated and they were very helpful and professional. We had to cut our visit short so will definitely be coming back again soon!

We stayed at this campground at the start of a week long visit to Glacier National Park. As is typical of most of the private campgrounds in the West Glacier area, the sites are tight without much privacy. But the park was clean and well maintained, as were the bathrooms. We had full hookups and the site included a picnic table. There was also a nice camp store, and they even cooked BBQ in the evenings if you were not inclined to cook your own dinner! The best part about the campground was its close proximity to Glacier, just a 10 minute drive from the park entrance.

We found this campground gem four years ago and just fell in love! The setting is gorgeous with sites in the pine-cedar forest as well as directly on Lake Pend Oreille. Some are pull-thru as well as back-in and they can accommodate fairly large RV's but it is best to check their website for the size of each campsite. There are no hookups or showers on site, but the bathrooms are kept quite clean. The campground hosts are very friendly and helpful. This campground is quite popular during the busy summer months so it is best to reserve a site in advance. There is a boat launch for easy access to the lake as well as a sunny beach with a roped off swimming area for children. Right next door is a private campground, Beyond Hope, that also has a wonderful Italian restaurant and outdoor barefoot bar for a nice change from campsite cooking. If you love camping by a large pristine mountain lake and surrounded by beautiful scenery, then this is the place!

We absolutely LOVE Riley Creek! The sites are large and in the woods with picnic tables and a fire pit provided. The Pend Orielle River is just steps away for boating or hanging on the beach. We enjoy staying here because it is only about a 20 minute drive from Sandpoint, so perfect for a day trip there to play on Lake Pend Orielle. Bathrooms are clean but be sure to have some spare change to use the showers. It books up fast every summer so reservations are highly recommended.

Beyond Hope is located on the east side of beautiful Lake Pend Orielle, about a half hour drive from Sandpoint. The beach and marina are very nice as is the onsite Italian restaurant which has a large outdoor deck for dining and enjoying the amazing sunsets! The sites, like most private RV resorts, are close together but some of them do have a view of the lake. The bathrooms are very tiny but fairly clean. Nice place for a weekend get-away!

This campground is awesome! Sites come in a range of sizes for small tents or tent campers all the way up to large motorhomes. You can choose from wooded sites to others that are more open with views of Priest Lake. There is a nice camp store which also serves ice cream, including the areas favorite, Huckleberry! Bathrooms are clean and there are individual showers available in some of the bath-houses. The beach is large and there is a dock as well as a boat launch. Perfect campground for a short or long vacation!

Steamboat Rock State Park is one of our favorites. We love to come here in the spring or over Memorial Day weekend before the summer heat hits. The campsites all have full hookups and are either right on the lake or you have a view of the water with just a short walk to reach the beach. Steamboat Rock itself is a great place to hike and the views from above are awesome! The trails are a little treacherous and steep so be sure to wear suitable footwear and be ready to do a little rock-climbing at times. Grand Coulee Dam is a short drive away as well!
