Just off of Lake McDonald. We woke up to see an elk walking through the loop. Great showers / bathrooms, but the doors have a feature to prevent you from locking the door as you leave, and this confuses some people. Simply close the door, then lock it. There is some threat of bears, so food storage rules apply. Loop D was closed because of bear visits. Nearby touristy places are Apgar and West Glacier; Columbia Falls has groceries and outdoor supplies. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

See Going-to-the-Sun Road if it is open. If you need supplies, there is a grocery store in Columbia Falls called Smiths that is a good bet. Visit Apgar and West Glacier, eat something with huckleberries. "Back Room" in Columbia Falls is a very popular restaurant with great food.

Even though the park was very full, it was quiet and the treed spaces give an illusion of privacy although you are very close to people. Although the pull through circular sites are a tight fit we got our 40 foot rig in with minimal maneuvering. Dump station and solid Verizon and AT&T coverage. Restricted generator hours. 8-10am, 12-2pm, and 5-7pm. which was a challenge as the sites are very wooded and there was not as much solar charging as we would have liked. Well kept, well-managed, showers available but only in Loop A which is a 5 minute walk for those in other loops. Keep in mind you need to by a $30 seven day parks pass (on top of your $23 a night fee), or for $80 you can purchase the America the Beautiful pass which is good for one year on all federal land. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful wooded campground - no mountain or lake views in Loop B. We were there when the temps were in the 90s so the shade was much appreciated. The campground map doesn't show it but all sites are pull-through. If you don't want your RV door facing the road pick a site on the right-hand (outside) side of the loop We were in site B68 next to the restroom. Although our site was lovely, I would give it a 1 out of 5 star rating for irritation. The restroom doors "clunk" when they close which was annoying during high-volume visit times (morning and evening). The campground also gets noisy in the evening as families return from their day activities. I thought the campground was limited to 35ft RVs but there were several in the campground that were larger. Generator use is only allowed 8-10am, 12-2pm, and 5-7pm. Because of bears, campers are told not to leave any food, including coolers and grills, out when gone from their site any length of time - we saw the Rangers remove a grill and a cooler from 2 sites when the occupants were gone. Campers are able to retrieve their stuff when they return. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground in the middle of the forest, which I really appreciated. Plenty of shadow and a beautiful scenery. At your disposal, a fire ring and a picnic table. The showers were very clean and particularly convenient (you know what I mean, ladies !!). We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent.

We had issues getting the camper (21ft) into the site. After a bit of work we got it in, but not the way we preferred. The location was great, it's a small walk down a path to the lake. Generator hours are a bit of a pain, they allow 8-10 am 12-2 pm and 4-6 pm, enough to charge batteries during breakfast, but we were always gone past 6 pm so no power to make dinner. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground. Trees everywhere. The west side of Glacier NP isn't nearly as scenic as the east side. But the campground was beautiful. We have a 35' fifth wheel and an F350 w/ 8' bed. It was a challenge getting out of our campsite but after moving a few site markers and scrubbing a tree or two, we were rolling. The sights on the inside of the loop have door and awning facing street. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff were available and friendly. This is a nice spot on McDonald Lake, we were able to walk down to the lake from our campsite. The rangers do a nightly program in the amphitheater. We stayed in a site near the entrance to loop C (no generator loop). The sites in this area were mostly level but not so much toward the back of the loop. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

I made reservations months ago and by the time we arrived the office was closed. Imagine my happiness when on the window our name was listed with our camp-site number. LOVED THAT!! It was a very nice looking camp ground with trees, nice bike/walking paths, clean restrooms (newly remodeled) with showers! Everything I read said there were no showers. They take tokens but it is a nice addition for those people who have no other options. The lake is gorgeous and was just a short walk from our camp-site. This isn't your swimming lake though...Brrrr!!! We had a nice bike ride to the "Village" with most of it on a bike path. The only downside: Mosquitoes. We couldn't go out in the evening to sit by the fire because they were horrible. That and no hook-ups was why I "docked" them. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Fish Creek is the only park campground on the western side of the park that accepts reservations. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel pull-offs. There are no hook-ups and no showers. Generators are permitted for two hours each morning, mid-day, and evening. We stayed at this campground for 7 days while exploring Glacier NP. Our site, A-23, was large and overlooked Fish Creek. We were pleased and surprised to have cell service (Verizon). The staff was friendly and helpful, and presented nightly programs in the amphitheater. The Going-to-the-Sun Road did not open all the way to Logan Pass until the afternoon of June 24. We enjoyed this campground and would stay again.

Fish Creek is one of the two campgrounds in Glacier National Park that accepts reservations. Located on the northern shore of Lake McDonald, potential users should be aware of the regulations and limitations pertaining to each of its 4 loops. Loop “A” is capable of holding larger motorhomes, but operators of these vehicles should take care when passing between the two large trees near sites 15 & 16. Loop “B” may create maneuvering problems for vehicles over 30’. Loop C prohibits any use of generators and campground literature warns that vehicles longer than 28’ are unable to navigate loop “D”. This is a heavily wooded campground, so at many of the sites vehicle interiors will be quite dark, even at mid-day. Because of its location on the more densely populated western side of the park, the campground receives heavy use during the summer season. We camped at Fish Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
