Jun 2016 - $43.00
This is an older campground, but well maintained and nice touches. Paid $43.24 per night with military discount.
The sites are shaded, but we got good satellite reception as well as antenna. The sites are long pull-throughs with plenty of space for our 37' motorhome and tow car. We had rain during our stay, and there was no problem with mud or puddling. Laundry room is clean and reasonably priced.
Miss Helen made the stay more enjoyable. She is a delightful woman who owns the campground and goes out of her way to be friendly and engaging. She even gave us a container and some potting soil for a plant we had picked up on a drive outside of town.
A little pricey for the age of the place, but all in all, we enjoyed our stay there and would stay there again. - villager

Chose this park over a nicer one in town due to the shade trees, and expected to have lower price due to past reviews. But those people had long term rates. Daily is $44.95 PLUS $2 for showers. Way too steep for this outdated country park. Trash bins overflowing for 2 days. Sites narrow but level and long. Voltage low. Laundry load almost $4, closes 8 PM. Cable TV was very good, and Verizon cell and MiFi worked. No info offered from front desk person about park Wi-Fi ,shower fees, rules, anything. Would still be OK for one night except for the price. - Annie's Song

Fairly nice campground with long pull-throughs and decent spacing between the gravel sites. Grass between the sites and a picnic table. Most sites have a tree or two that do provide some shade. No fire pits and personal fire pits are not allowed either. Price is a bit steep, especially since the showers are $2.00! We stayed a week and got one night free and it was still $38.00/night. Lots of things to do in Glacier Park but make sure you visit the little town of Whitefish.....about 5 miles to the west, great restaurants! - AeroScout

Trains, Trains, and more trains...LOUD HORNS all throughout the night. Sometimes as 0ften as every 15 minutes! Road noise with truckers using jake brakes was just another annoyance during the night. Weedy, messy park with small narrow sites. And I can't forget to mention the quiet hours from 10pm to 6am...what quiet hours?? Rowdies partying up to 2am with slamming car doors, yelling, and carrying on with absolutely no consideration for others...None! Can't say I'll stay again even if the restrooms were clean and the showers were hot. - Rick Frazier

Park is very foresty, like not all spots will get TV, but it is in a good location. Owners very nice. We called last minute to get a spot; they said come on down. We got there just before her crowds were coming in. She gives a price, no discounts, no adding tax back on, just a price! Will be back.. - melissa boone

This seemed to be the least expensive park near Glacier, so we stayed before and after GNP, glad to have showers , power and laundry. One site worked fine, but other was on the hillside and quite sloped. Park is in the trees but not great shade when it's in the 90s. Strange set-up with some tent camper sites tightly next to the RVs, which was bothersome when the tenters had fires going til midnight, with smoke smell too close. Didn't seem to be any rule enforcement here, with speeders and dust flying, and campfires going even tho there was a health alert and smoke from WA heavy in the air. But this park works for an overnight, has a great though small laundry room and bathroom. - Annie's Song

This park is located about 5 miles from the west entrance to Glacier National Park along Highway 2. Sites are level. There are larger trees and some tight corners for parking bigger rigs. Owners live on the premises and were pleasant. There is no store, but businesses and restaurants are within 5-10 miles along Highway 2. This is a no-frills, but pleasant RV park. We would stay here again. - gbburgess

This is a pleasant rural CG near the west side of Glacier NP. The roads and sites are gravel with grass between them. All of them would have benefited from a bit more gravel. Most sites are large pull-throughs that have no difficulty with large rigs and towed cars. Tall trees provide shade and they do complicate getting satellite TV, but the long site allowed us to move around a bit and we were able to get a signal using our rooftop system. Although the CG is right off US2 there is relatively minor traffic noise. The owner/manager was quite pleasant both when we called to make the reservation and when we checked in. She has gotten criticized in some reviews because she makes sure that campers know the CG's rules. We didn't think the rules were unusual and her insistence on making sure customers are aware of them is, no doubt, the result of discovering that some people ignore CG rules and then claim ignorance of them. There is WiFi but it is weak and wasn't even working the first day we were there. However, Verizon 4G service was strong and fast. The most unusual aspect of this CG is that hot water is turned off in the bathrooms/showers at night. We are self-contained and don't use CG bathrooms, but this could be an issue for some people. One thing that was impressive was that bear-proof trash containers were placed throughout the park; we've never seen them used except at federal and state facilities. One criticism, however, is that only some of the sites are "big rig friendly". We were in B5 and ended up backing out of our site because the rig in the row in front of us made it impossible for us to avoid a tree as we exited. If I stayed there again I would insist on a spot in the "D" row. - docj

Started out a score of 10 with the beautiful sites in the woods, and perfectly level gravel sites. Then we realized the advertised Wi-Fi was all but non-existent, the sewer hookup was inconveniently high, and the shower head was duct-taped, which leaked and sprayed erratically. We could never get voltage above 114, and that was prior to plugging anything in. A/C on low dropped voltage to 109. Our friends stayed in nearby, expensive KOA, and we would join them there next time. - User3773

This is totally in the woods but a very nice park that is well managed by professionals! Spot was not totally level side to side but was able to level with blocks. Very comfortable spot with good spacing/privacy. To be honest, I could not find my receipt so I'm guessing a bit at what I paid? It was not too much for what it was. I would stay here again for sure! - Dave Alexander

The best campground I have visited this year. The rate is based on monthly stay. I was only able to book a site with no sewer but there is a honey-wagon twice per week for $10 each visit. Sites are spread out and in the woods. Nothing "parking lot" about this place! Fishing pond. Live music on Fridays. Close to Glacier. Great place. - Susan C.

Nice quiet park set on the slope at the base of the mountains. Sites are close to level. Park roads are somewhat steep with tight turns but manageable. Clean hot shower, pay laundry facilities. Wildlife sightings within the campgrounds. Note: LOUD Air raid siren blasted at 3 am, we called the local police, the dispatcher explained that was the call out for the volunteer fire department, not to be worried. - don_church

This is a large park with all the amenities. Playground, swimming hole. Nice store in the office. We had a long pull through and didn't have to disconnect the toad. There were some long term campers. They had gravel driveways and gravel pads and mowed grass between each site.
They had screw in sewer connections. Water pressure was good. They had 50 amps. There was cable TV. Rubbermaid trash cans were placed around the park. The WiFi was outstanding with excellent response time. Verizon Wireless was 4 out of 5 bars; ATT wireless 5 out of 5 bars. There were some flies, but no mosquitoes. We would camp here again. - RVTravelerToo

Very quiet place off the roadway. Level back in spots although there are pull thru too. Clean restrooms/showers and pretty good size laundry facility. We pulled in here with a storm right behind us. We had lost our outside vent cover and had a hole in the top of the trailer. We had purchased a new cover to replace it but no way to get up on the roof to fix it since our trailer does not have a ladder. Mentioned this to the hostess when we checked in that we might have to go get a ladder and she had a ladder for us to fix it. Got it fixed just as a hail storm hit. We were close enough to the office so the wifi strength wasn't too bad. When making online reservations you have to call them after they receive it to confirm. I guess this is a safety feature and they take your credit card # to hold a spot. - JBevans

4 night stay, nice QUIET park-no traffic or trains! Convenient to Kalispell, Whitefish, Colombia Falls (I was here for softball games). Also good place to stay for Glacier National Park. Sites are pretty close in the new section.My only issue was that we ended up in a new part without a fire ring (but didn't notice til we were all set up). Also, there are permanent residences here, also, in another section. We were close to that section and the problem was that one of the residents left the house and a dog inside the home started barking. We left, came back 5 hours later--still barking. Left a voicemail for the manager (7:00 p.m.) and it wasn't long before he came around. Glad he was on top of things! - Susan - Richard Nelson

About as close as you can get to the West entrance of Glacier National Park. The campground offers breakfast Wednesday to Sunday. Laundry facility available as well. Sites are situated on a mountain slope but are somewhat level. Our site was fairly tricky to navigate into though for a big rig. The biggest issue was the low power voltage coming into the rig.
The rate reflects Good Sam discount. - Bay Area Early retirees

This campground is conveniently located about a mile from the west entrance of Glacier National Park. It is reasonably priced and heavily wooded, so no satellite TV reception possible. Sites are not paved and are narrow (room for the slide, but too tight for the awning). We camped in our 27' motorhome and had no problem getting into our site and only minimal work to get level. There was a fire pit and picnic table area behind our rig. We did have just enough room to park our tow Jeep on the lot. It did take the 40' rig across from us about 10 minutes to leave his site. I have no idea how he ever got into it. The bathrooms are clean, and the water is hot. The shower configuration is strange, in that, you must walk through the dressing area of shower #1 to get to shower #2. The entire campground is situated on a hill, so you'll be walking up a steep hill either to or from the bathrooms. There was free wi-fi available outside the office. There was ample seating and tables there, and reception was good. - RagTopDay

If you have noisy, running loose kids and dogs, this is the place for you!!!
Sites are very narrow, hard to enter and exit with long rig. Ours was supposed to be 60ft, and our 53ft overall combo hung out by at least 3-4 feet, no matter how I angled it. Elec, sewer, and water were ok. Dog droppings in site and in son's site next to us, and loose dogs (owners???) running around through sites. Along with that, they have a "petting zoo" on site, and the miniature ponies were loose also, and they make more of a mess than the dogs!!!!
Obviously a family "destination" stop for summer trips. Kids running in the roads and down hills in the "free" big wheels and carts available. A free breakfast is provided, and it was just ok. Lack of choices, and depending on time of the morning, lukewarm or cold eggs, etc.
This was an "emergency" stop on a 2 week boondocking trip in Montana, but would never use again, even in an "emergency"!!!!! - GLB

This was by far the most expensive RV park that we stayed in on our trip. We booked by phone and were told that they could accommodate a 38' fifth wheel. In fact we were told that our site was 75' long and that it was a pull through. Our first impression of the park was of a well treed park in a bit of a valley. It was very busy with children running around on recumbent bikes that were low to the ground. Getting into our site was difficult for the size of our unit, and we had to ask someone to move their truck in order to make the turn at all. To say that this park is too tight for big units is an understatement. Although the site was a "pull-through" by name, there was no way to make the turns in order to actually pull through. It certainly was not 75' in length. In fact the rear end of our fifth wheel was very close to the road in the back and there was no room to park the truck in front unless it was sideways across the site. When we put out our slides, the bedroom slide was literally over the concrete table of our neighbour to the left. They could not use their fire pit until we pulled our truck out. They advertised an adult only hot tub, but it was small, dirty, and certainly not hot. We chose not to get in. The indoor/outdoor pool was questionable in its cleanliness and we chose not to use that either. The "free" breakfast was OK, but exactly the same all 3 days of our stay. It lacked any healthy choices except for a bowl of melon. The room in which we ate had a very dirty, smelly carpet on the floor. Supposedly there was free Wi-Fi, however, we were unable to get on at all while at our site. It was possible to access our email at 2 computers provided in the dining hall. The "free" bikes provided were never available, could not be booked, and were used by the same few children daily. On paper the park appears to have many things for children to do, but they are in poor repair. As adults, we found the park too busy, too loud, too tight, and in need of repair. The sites themselves are uneven, and the roads are narrow, bumpy, and have tight turns. This is definitely not a good park for larger rigs. If it had not been for pleasant neighbours, we would never have been able to get out of our site. It required several eyes to help make the manoeuvres necessary to back out and around a turn to the road. We personally will not use this park again. - Durango12

The park has very uneven grounds and site locations. Difficult to navigate through the park and park in the assigned site. Not all sites provide sewer. Very cramped and very noisy all day long and the smoke from the campfires penetrates every RV. It feels like sleeping in a smokehouse. There are hardly sufficient reasons for the nightly rate of 69 or 70 dollars. The breakfast is OK and sufficient.There is nothing for adults to do here other than trying to avoid children on tricycles. The pool is very small, cold and overrun with toddlers and youngsters. The so called "adults only hot Jacuzzi" is a bathtub for perhaps 4 people. The "mini golf" is not even funny enough to describe. Close to Whitefish by car, about 7-8 minutes. Not good enough for us to return here. - LEONIDAS2010

Small privately owned park. Tight roads, level parking pads. Store onsite. I think there are better places to stay in the area. - boisegolfer

Close in to West Glacier National Park entrance. Great Showers, with plenty of hot water, laundry facilities were great also. Nice place, nothing glitzy just a great place to stay!
We recommend it.. - GFoxH

We had a nice wide space with views of lots of trees. The park is clean and the laundry/lounge area was very clean. We didn't use the restrooms or showers. The only minus was we were on the farthest side of the park from the office and the wifi essentially did not work for us. We would definitely stay here again. - HS R.

Very odd layout, but clean. Our spot did not have sewer, only water and electric. It was in the back of a field that we had to drive across to get to our site. The site was extremely unlevel. It was not worth the $44 we paid. No Good Sam discount. Pretty setting with shade. Showers were clean but VERY small. - MargieTX

First the good...CLOSE to Glacier West entrance. All downhill from there. Campground is dirt, most everywhere. Dusty if dry, muddy if wet. On our first night I asked the two ladies in the office why there were no towels/dryer machine in the bathrooms. Was told that the "RV'ers take the towels to wash their windshields". Not only is there no means to dry hands after using the facilities there is NO soap provided, dispensers or otherwise. The campground has the railroad tracks on one side and a heavily truck /car traveled highway within 100 yards on the other. The shower stalls are tiny and the toilet was dirty from someone that had had serious problems. We camped there for two nights and the same toilet still had not been cleaned by the morning we left. I informed the two ladies in the office the morning we left that after a month of camping all over the Canadian Rockies their campground rated the lowest. I told them the unclean toilet was a perfect example. With that their profanity began and they accused me of being cause for the dirty toilet and to "get out of here". As a retired banker I have never been confronted with such abuse in all my travels. My wife and I spent the next two nights much further away from the park entrance but in a campsite worthy of a 4-5 star rating. San-Suz-Ed was a disaster and not worth a rating higher than a two and only then for being so close to the park. We would never stay here again. - Sweatlife

Main drive is paved and other roads & sites are dirt. Sites are fairly level, pull through for big rigs. They have a restaurant for breakfast. It was average. Utilities worked fine except 30 amp didn't work at our site. No TV on antenna & Dish could not get through the trees. Wifi worked good but slow. Laundry is $2.25 to wash & .25 for 7 min dry. Park is 2.5 miles west of West Glacier & 14 miles east of Columbia Falls. Good location for visiting Glacier NP. Just way to much to pay for water, electric, sewer & a picnic table in my opinion. No discounts. - Retired & rambling
