This campground is halfway between Essex and East Glacier Park in an open meadow, although there are wooded sites available for smaller RVs. They advertise free Wi-Fi but what they mean is free limited Wi-Fi (checking email only) and you may have to access it by going to the open air pavilion (lots of bugs). Same goes for cell phone service. You need to put your phone directly on the booster in the pavilion. No sewer connection and if you need your tanks dumped you can notify them one day in advance of their Mon, Wed, and Fri schedule. Showers were clean but postage stamp size. Two washers and two dryers. We would not camp here again. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.
This park is about half way between East Glacier and West Glacier cities. It is in an open meadow, with shared electricity, but wide sites. They have no sewer hook-ups, but the campground host comes by every other day to pump out your tanks if you need them pumped. The laundry is small, but very clean. The campground is very quiet and easy to get in and out of. While you are in the area, drive to Columbia Falls and check out the meat locker. It is called Perfect Cuts. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Very pleasant experience staying here for a couple of nights. As the name implies the park is in a large open spaces meadow with snow capped mountains all around. The camp hosts keep the area immaculate. We were able to drive through Glacier National Park easily; one day the West Side and the next day the East side. We would definitely return to this park.

Clean and well run. Easy in and out. Spaces are spaced nicely. Little bit of road noise. Located in a beautiful meadow/valley. No Internet or phone service - was kind of nice actually! Only place we saw a black bear, but it kept it's distance. Would stay again. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.

A GEM, wonderful people, so friendly. Big field for our dog to run and play with a frisbee. Park was spotless and super clean bathrooms and showers . Wi-Fi was a little slow at times, cell booster worked great. To previous post: if you must have TV, Wi-Fi, and mobile phone, stay home! What a beautiful setting in in a beautiful part of America.

This park is extremely well located actually between East and West Glacier directly on Hwy 2. Easy access, nice turns well graveled and immaculate. Stay in the open green and beautiful meadow if you are extra big and/or wish satellite or back into one of the wooded sites and commune with nature. For us wi-fi Tengointernet was fine. If you are doing NASA type downloads and heavy stuff maybe not, but why would you want to do that in this natural paradise. We looked at parks in Columbia Falls, West Glacier, and the other townie areas. UGH! Crowded, much tourist traffic, congestion; if we wanted that, we could have stayed home. But I am sure there you could play inside on your computer all day. Great water here, (fill your holding tank) and strong electric. Sewer permits are hard to come by in this region, so although no sewer, they come by and dump your tank at your site twice a week. Our 45' bus was very, very, happy here.

We stay at this park because it is midway between East and West Glacier Park and has services that aren't available in the National Park campgrounds. This park is in a big meadow near Marias Pass and the Continental Divide. Very quiet and peaceful at night with very little traffic on Highway 2. Nothing fancy, just basic services with very clean rest rooms and showers, well-maintained lawns and grounds and a nice little store with ice cream bars. Cell and internet service was difficult, but a central booster made it possible. Rules state that dogs must be leashed, but nobody objected to letting dogs run loose in the large meadow, and they loved it. We'll camp here again. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's in a beautiful setting and the big rig people in pull throughs with sat TV and internet were probably happy, but we disliked this place. Took a site in the woods to be closer to shower house but nearby family trashed the showers, which don't have a shelf or seat to put your stuff, but otherwise is a nice room. Electric was excellent but never found the "central" water. Bummed that the "cell phone booster" in the outside pavilion was useless. Phone and internet signals dropped; others struck out too. Paid too much for nothing. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park! Very friendly in the office. Sites are great and level. The only thing to note is that there is a limit to how much you can upload and download on their internet hotspot. No 3G, no AT&T service. They do have a signal booster for Verizon. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.

The weak point of this park is the Wi-Fi. They have Tengo and it limits upload and download. They also have a Verizon booster in the Pavilion and the Verizon MiFi works pretty good if you go sit next to the booster in the pavilion. Roads are nice gravel with little to no dust. The 50 amp sites all seem to be drive-throughs with water and plenty of sun (i.e. little shade) However this is a pretty high elevation and doesn't get too hot. They also have a bunch of back-in sites in the trees which have 30 amp and a central water station. There are no sewer hooks at any site in the park, but they have a dump station. They also offer pump out service 3 times a week. The view in the pull-throughs can either face the trees or the meadow and mountains. I recommend the meadow. The price includes the GS discount. Staff was friendly and helpful. Showers clean and hot, bathrooms clean, and they have a laundry. Nice park. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.
Friendly, helpful staff; clean grounds and facilities; nice pavilion; the pull thrus are in the sun while the back-ins are in the trees. We are people who like solitude and privacy so the fact that the wooded lots are spacious was a must. We, however, would have liked more Wi-Fi friendly accommodations. They only gave us upload/download privileges. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to friends. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park with open views. The only thing we don't like is the door to door parking. And, since the spaces aren't overly large, this meant you are 10 ft from your neighbor's door. Not too bad, but the fellow next to us tied his dog by our door. Our dog was NOT happy with that situation. We would stay again, but maybe ask for one of the treed sites, which are back-in singles.

This is a comfortable and quiet RV Park 16 miles west of East Glacier Park Village on Highway 2. There are 25 pull through sites exposed on a sunny meadow with scenic views of mountains. There are 16 backin sites beneath a canopy of hardwood and pine trees. Some of those sites may accommodate a larger size RV. The pull through sites are short and not so spacious. Most of the occupants park their tow or towed vehicle side ways on the site or on the adjacent meadow. Big rigs must disconnect to fit on the sites. Each site is sloped and not level. Our site was lumpy and required the placement of boards beneath a tire to achieve being level. The 50 Amp hook-up is placed at the front of the site. So we had to park in a reverse position in order to reach the outlet. Water pressure is low and there are no sewer connections except at the dump station. The backin sites have electric, but no water connection. There is a shower house in need of TLC. The price of washing laundry is a dollar and a quarter for each 20-minutes of drying. The RV sites are a sufficient distance from the highway for a super quiet night. There is absolutely no RV Park lights here at night, which provides for a great darken experience at night. We stayed here for seven nights and will stay here again. We camped at Glacier Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.
Very nice place. The pull-though spots are close together like all the other parks, but the huge meadow right outside your front door more than makes up for it. Very helpful staff. Great views, especially at sunset. There is a train track close by, with trains probably hourly, but no train whistles blowing, so sleeping through the low hum was no problem.
