2 Parks near East Glacier Park, Montana
Aug 2015 - $38.00
Stayed here in May on the way to Alaska and again in August. We found the campground to be in a beautiful mountainous setting, very neat and gracious hosts. The gentlemen brought us to our site as a courtesy and made sure everything was to our likings. The site was level and neighbors would have been a little close, but with the park not full, we had no one on either side. The grounds are well maintained and lots of room for walking. We saw three elk. We used the laundry, very clean as well as restrooms and showers. Stayed three days to tour the area. Would definitely return when in the area again. Wifi worked fine at their pavillion. As stated, they pump out for free. It was a nice surprise knowing we didn't have to use the dump station upon departure. - Buckie

We stayed at the Glacier Meadows RV park for 3 days in our 40' rig. Check in was easy because of our reservation. The park is just a large open field with a gravel driveway to gravel pull thru's. There are no trees in this newer area. The older part of the park in the forest is tight fitting due to the trees. Getting to our site was easy but, yet again we had to be escorted to our space even though we told them this was not our first rodeo and were full time RVer's. Still he had to show us how the utilities worked. That and you had to be a moron if you could not find your spot in a straight line with hardly any RV's in the entire park. Pulling into our pull thru was not a problem. The spaces are not very roomy. I am at a loss as to why they put the spaces so close together when he has room for at least 500 sites on the property and it is obvious they plan on expanding in the future. The sites are not level so you need blocks or levelers. The utilities were all in the right place and in working order for my spot. Our satellite worked fine but, our Verizon hot spot did not work and we had to use the camp's WiFi which was really poor. The strange thing is that once we did get a neighbor, the guy drove him into the space so his door faced mine and we had to share the same picnic table and grass space. I understand putting RV's together door to door if your buddies but, this made no sense. Eventually more campers came and they had screaming kids who ran all over the park. So much for any wildlife spotting.It was hard to enjoy the park. The showers are outdated and very small. You cannot turn in the shower without the plastic curtain wrapping you up.We were totally disappointed and will not be back to this park. Such great potential wasted. - SteelHorseRider

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. - Mochaluvr

Good, clean park in East Glacier Park MT. We camped against the west fence for shade, lights and water but no sewer connection. $25 a night. We'd camp here again. Strong water pressure. Train noise which is not a bother to us. Easy access to Going to Sun road, Two Medicine Camp and East Glacier. Owners very friendly and accommodating.
Inner circle with full hookups is gravel. - Jim Lee

This is a nice campground if you want to visit the Eastern side of Glacier National Park.
As you drive into East Glacier Park coming from West Glacier there is a sign for Y Lazy R RV Park that tells you to turn right at the Exxon station. The Exxon station is long gone and there is no indication that there was a fueling station. Follow the signs for Dancing Bear Inn. From US-2 east, turn right at Montana Street then go two blocks to Meade St then turn right. The campground is at the end of this street. All of the streets off of US-2 are gravel. Be prepared to dodge the potholes.
The interior loop of this campground is on packed gravel and the sites are on grass. The pull-throughs, located in the center of the loop, have full hookups, with 30 amp electric service. The back-in sites have water and electric only. There is no dump station. The electrical voltage was strong - hovering around 121 volts. The utilities were on the appropriate side. The sites were fairly level.
The bathroom and showers were clean but very old and tired. The showers cost $0.25 for an unknown amount of time. The community laundry was very clean. Washers cost $1.50 and the dryers cost $0.25 for 10 minutes. The dryers were very hot.
There is no Wi-Fi at this campground but Verizon air card and cell phone worked reasonably well here. There was some train noise at night.
According to the owner, this park rarely fills up except on holidays and Indian Days (around July 10). Don't expect the owners to call you back if you leave a message. She mentioned that she prefers you to just show up.
Tent and dry camping cost $22, W/E cost $25 and FHU cost $28
We would come back to this campground if we were in the area. Our RV is 32' long. - adsaxs

What a beautiful place to stop! The views are superb. The campsites grass and very level. When we put our leveling jacks down, they barely moved. The owner was very friendly. She came put to greet us, brought me a map of Glacier National Park and gave me tips on places to go. - Debnroux
