10 Parks near East Glacier Park, Montana
Jun 2016 - $25.00
I stayed here 3 days while visiting Glacier National Park. The campground is about 10 minutes south of the Two Medicine park entrance. The daily rate is $25 plus tax for all sites. All sites have water, sewer, electric. The Wi-Fi will support only one computer at a time. My wife and I could not sign in at the same time. There is no CATV or broadcast TV. There are 4 back-in sites and 3 pull-through. The back-in sites have 30 amp. I first pulled into a pull-through 50 amp site. When I looked at the pedestal only had a 30 amp plug, but had a 5o amp breaker. I used my tester and multi-meter to find that the pedestal was wired incorrectly, with an open neutral in addition to the overpowered 30 amp outlet (VERY DANGEROUS). I checked the 50 amp pedestal on the adjacent site and found it to be similar. I notified the manager, but did not see that a repair was made. IF YOU STAY ON A PULL-THROUGH SITE BE VERY CAREFUL!!! The 50 amp sites are 120 volt, not 220 volt.
On the positive side; the manager was super friendly and very helpful, gasoline is available at the motel, rental cars are available at the motel, there are restaurants (rustic but good) within walking distance. I would stay here again in the 30 amp back-in sites, but I would not use the pull-through sites. - R V Camper

Nice place to stay for a couple days. You park on a grass lawn at a place on the edge of East Glacier Village. Low key, good price, small park. Kind of like you are parking on someone's large lawn outside their house, but not in a bad way, that is just kind of how it is. We enjoyed it. Camping can be hard to come by around Glacier NP. The owner is really laid back. - Stax

A unique campground next to the busiest railroad I have ever seen. You get used to it fairly quickly but wow about 3 per hour. The owner did not seem to be around much as other campers came in and needed codes for restroom. According to these campers, couldn't get her on the phone. She did drive around a couple of times and was very helpful. I though the location was beautiful and would stay here again if wanting to see Glaicer NP from the East side. There was no TV reception but our phones and I-pads got good reception. She is working on Wi-Fi but the installers seem to have disappeared. - Jack&Wanda

This is a gem of a little park close to the east entrance of Glacier. Easy to get to and felt completely safe and place nicely maintained. They had a reserved sign on our site, the site was just what we asked for. Did not use their facilities, so cannot comment on those. They can accommodate all sizes of rigs. Now, it is fairly close to the railroad track/East Glacier Amtrak station and some road noise, but did not bother us at all, just ran the AC/fan in the bedroom. Easy access to local restaurants and east side of Glacier NP. - RPWAINC

30/50 amp sites with water no sewer, but they do pump tanks MWF at no charge, and there is a dump station on site. Electronics are useless, no cell, TV, or radio. Internet is free but it is like the old dial-up and pretty much useless. The plus is it's close to a lot of sightseeing which is what we came for. $255 for a 7 day stay. - Edd505

Park is nice, managers are nice. They don't have sewer but pump tanks out at no charge on M, W, Th. Park is laid out in a single line, not a grid, which gives every campsite a view of the meadow and surrounding mountains. The WiFi and cell service here are basically nonexistent. There is a single cell booster with a good antenna available but requires placing next to the handset, so that has the potential for lines waiting to make a phone call.
Fire rings are portable and available in limited supply, but we had one for our entire stay. You must ask for them, or look behind the pavilion where they seem to store extra ones. - Stax

We stayed 2 nights and while the spaces were small, the restrooms were kept spotless. Great hot water, showers were clean and the only complaint that I have was the showers were kind of small so the shower curtain kept getting in the way while trying to shave my legs. We had full hookups near restrooms. There were other very nice wooded sites with electricity and no water. No cell service, no internet unless you go to the pavilion and no tv. What a treat in today's world, where we think we need to be connected 24/7. - Family Death

We had an excellent site right on Pray Lake with a view of the mountains surrounding us. We set our chairs up at the water's edge and enjoyed all Glacier had to offer. The campground never filled and this was due to the closure of many of the hiking trails from Two Medicine as a result of the wildfires in the area. There was some smoke, but nothing that would result in closure of the campground. East Glacier is nearby, where cell coverage was 4G/LTE. This is our favorite Glacier campground. - Marsha D

A great gem, nestled in next to the mountains and lake on the East side of Glacier National Park, it's first come first serve, and may fill at certain times, but we got the pull through site we wanted by simply arriving early and waiting till the folks left. Site was reasonably level and spacious.
There are no hookups, but there is a dump station & water fill, bathrooms were old but clean and functional. We were lucky enough to miss the fires, the morning we were leaving, a gentleman that was waiting for our site, informed us that the Going to the Sun Road was closed due to a fire. With the low cost, and absolutely gorgeous area, we would certainly stay here again. - bukhrn

What a gem this park is!! One of the most beautiful National Park CG settings we have experienced! Staff was very friendly and restrooms were very clean. If you have a sizeable rig, get there early!! There are people cruising the park in the morning to get one of the larger sites that are in the front near the meadow and lake. Drove the loops twice before we found a great site. A lot of sites in the inner loops will not accommodate an RV or trailer, especially anything over 25'. Kind of a bummer that the big sites that can accommodate a big rig can be taken up by a tent. But, it is "first come first served" and the sites are as much their right as anybody else. The store and boat dock area are great and an easy walk or bike ride away. We will definitely be back! - B-Rad502

This is the only 'campground' in Browning. Take a long, dusty road to an unattended RV park with 10 spaces. The park is just west of the intersection of US 2 and MT 89 about 1/2 mile toward the Canadian border. I had to walk around horse droppings to hook-up the electric. The 50 amp service was good. This is not a destination resort. Maybe I can find someone in the morning to give my $20 to. Water and electric only. There is a dump station. If you are really tired and need to stop then it is OK. All 10 spaces were full the day I was there - during Native American days - mid-July. - AshleyAnne

The man who checked us in was abrupt & rude and that should have been our 1st indication to not stay at this campground.
We understand the rule of 10pm quiet time, but to have to fires out at 10 when we are quietly sitting beside it is a little ridiculous.
We understood that you could either have the breakfast buffet or order off the menu, however we were told upon getting there that we should go down the road if we wanted to have breakfast other than what was served at the buffet, with food allergies this was not going to work for us, it was very strange.
The biggest issue however was the trains.....quiet time is at 10, but with trains every 30-40 min & the track about 40 feet away, the noise we would have made was nothing compared to that amount of noise!
This has been the highest price campground we came across ($60 usd) & would not recommend it with their rules & no sleep due to noise of highway and trains. - Roxane

This was a beautiful campground. And the sites are big (we took a 38 ft 5th wheel) with lots of trees. The grounds were clean and the management friendly. But I will never stay at this RV site again. I ignored the reviews regarding the noise and the trains. I should have listened. The train I was able to actually get used to but there was so much traffic noise day and night and you are right next to the street. The other thing I found very odd is in the bathroom there are no doors. just a small stall with a shower curtain hanging on it that blows open whenever someone opens the door. (Sorry, but you guys need to put a little money into your restroom and add some doors.) There were also a TON of bugs at our site. So bad that you can not even put enough bug spray on to sit outside. It is unfortunate because the actual area is quiet beautiful. But when we go back to Glacier we will not be staying here. - Knibbers

This park was really great. Nice sites, friendly and helpful agents, clean restrooms and showers. Some train noise but after first night it did not bother us. Great location for seeing east and west side of Glacier National Park. - B j crowson

When we were there, they were only allowing hard sided rigs, vans, etc., because of a bear problem. We never saw any bears or other interesting wildlife; just chipmunks and birds. The sites cannot accommodate large rigs. We have a 30’ motorhome, and it was a tight squeeze. There was a nice dump station and good quality potable water, but no hookups. We drove our small dinghy car across Logan Pass; vehicles over about 24 feet are not allowed there, and for good reasons. - DMarilynB

The pull through sites with full hookups are located high on a hill. Fantastic view. Very long and narrow sites with drop offs at each side. Not level. Office and bathrooms located at bottom of hill. No phone (AT&T), wifi or TV. Their water spigot froze at night during first weekend of September (not insulated). This park is way overpriced and their refund policy is outrageous - no refunds within 30 days for ANY reason. - bspe

This park is perfectly located on the east side of Glacier NP and they know it. It is pricey. The sites are well placed, gravel, and no thrills. I love that you can look out and see the mountains.They have a wonderful restaurant that serves family style. - daa10496

I'm quite sad to leave a negative review for this park as we love east Glacier, but after staying here for consecutive years, I feel the park is relying entirely on its position and lack of competition. Good things about Johnsons: the staff is friendly and very helpful. Nice views from some of the sites over St Marys Lake and countryside. Easy access to some of the best hikes in the whole of Glacier. Its cheaper than the KOA across the road. The bad: sites are dirt/gravel/weeds, and most are very uneven and horribly narrow. No chance of putting an awning out on our site B25. While some of the sites are long, others have barely enough room to park a toad off the road. The only level sites on the area next to the office, are so close together vans are jammed in like sardines. The water pressure varied between poor and terrible to the point we had to fill our tank and use the pump. The wifi that is new and now supposed to be throughout the park, was worse than useless. If you are going to do something, then do it properly. Because the access roads are dirt the speed limits need to be enforced, but even staff drove vehicles too quickly causing huge dust problems. The restrooms are a hike down the hill from most of the sites, so anyone with mobility problems would find them difficult.
The money spent redoing the office would have been better spent improving the condition of the sites. A shame as this park could be so much better than it is. - 2onthemove

St Mary Campground is just beyond the St Mary visitors center on the east end of Going to the Sun road. There are 3 loops. Loop C has 4 private unisex hot showers which are spacious and push button. (One was closed during our stay and the water will be shut off September 19th). Showerheads are at a good height, even for folks over 6'! The pull through sites vary GREATLY in levelness so choose carefully. Generation hours are 8 am to 10 am, a midday time and 5 pm to 7 pm. (We were out exploring midday so didn't pay attention to the time). Most of the sites are right by the loop road and many campers head out near sunrise. This is a VERY busy campground and fills up most weekends. The website provides good information on what time the campgrounds fill up. Loop C is very open, Loop A and B are much shadier. - Terry P

Great place to see the park. Sites are kinda tight. But otherwise pleasant. Bears in campground every night. :-) - Spantz

This was dry camping and since we were in a motor home it was no problem. The showers and restroom were very clean. The campground was smoke filled because of all the fires. It rained and snowed our last nig ht. What a beautiful view of the mountains when we woke up. To bad we had to leave. - larbac

Like most KOA campgrounds, this one is over priced, but since it is the only decent full-service campground in the area, they get their price. The WIFI was pretty much useless. I was able to receive emails, but I would have to try multiple times to get an email to send and forget about looking up something on the web. They had a strong WIFI signal but lousy throughput. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. They have a little ice cream and coffee bar where they will make sandwiches for you to take with you for lunch. They also have a barbecue available each night during the Summer. Good size swimming pool and spa, both out doors of course. The interior roads are narrow, but passable. I was in M1, a back-in site that was angled appropriately for backing in to it, but we had to go out the same direction we came in, so it took some maneuvering to get turned around. There was a low rock protecting something next to the road that I hit with my front wheel and made a large gouge in it and the fender rode up on it and scratched the bottom. Not sure why it was there, just very annoying to scratch a 22.5" motorhome wheel. - USA by RV

Beautiful views of the mountains. Long level gravel sites. Great utilities. Would give it a ten but no cable or over air tv stations. Also we were supposed to get a bricked patio site that was advertised. They did put us in a patio site but it was grass and needed some attention. We only saw one bricked patio. Very close to Glacier National Park entrance. - The Griffins

Our site was near the office in Section F. Unfortunately, this was the main drag for the pizza delivery guy and fire wood salesman. In the evening the ATVs loaded with pizza or firewood whizzed by our campsite making a lot of noise and stirring up dust. Thank goodness we did get some rain to help keep the dust down. The sites were close together and didn't offer much shade. We had three small aspens between us and the next RV on one side and nothing on the other. Roads in and out of the park were pretty rough. The WiFi was very seldom accessible. At times you could connect with the wife but could not get to the internet. AT&T cell and data were nonexistent and there is no local TV to acquire on the antenna and no cable. Views of the surrounding mountains were nice, but the campground was anything but pretty. Hooks ups were fine. Because of the location to Going to the Sun Road we would camp here again, but definitely not in Section F an nowhere near the office to avoid the ATV delivery guys. - Sigohigo
