We stayed here 3 nights in a pull-through site. As with most places the sites are not created equal and site B2 is not one you want since the neighboring site utilities including sewer are about two steps outside your door. Found the roads in the park to be quite narrow. The location on the river is great and was just a short walk for us. We probably wouldn't stay here again unless we were able to reserve one of the better/larger sites along the river. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Travel Trailer.

It is a pretty big park on the river. The sites are long but the roads are a bit narrow and there are some big trees. This makes parking a big rig a bit challenging. There is a small dog area that can be kind of far depending on where you are housed. It is relatively close to getting in to Glacier National Park at the west gate and the town will meet all of your basic resupply needs. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

Spruce Park By the River Campground
Very easy to find right on Hwy 35. Nice paved roads inside a very well kept campground located right on Flathead River. Sites are nice sized and level. Very friendly staff that escort you to your site. Plenty of shade trees. Short walk to river for a fantastic view or to go fishing. Good Verizon signal. Would stay again. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

When going to the campground, go around east side of Kalispell to avoid traffic. Trust Google maps on this route. Dine at Nickel Charlie's for some of the best food you have ever eaten. Just a couple miles from campsite. Stop by Willow Huckleberryland in Hungry Horse, Mt for some of the best Huckleberry treats around.

We stayed in the park the last two days of May at a rate of $43 a day. June 1st is the beginning of their busy season and the rates jump up to $59. The park is an older park and has a new owner who is putting some work in it for upgrades. The park has easy off highway access, wide roads within the park, NO low tree limbs, good water pressure, good WiFi connection and the owner has just laid new gravel on roads and campsite pads. The view on the river is great and the staff is friendly and helpful. Showers and bathrooms were clean. We were going to stay a week but when told that the daily rates were going up to $59 the next day we decided to move. To us the $59 rate was too high for what was offered so, we moved to another campground with more amenities for the same price. If we are in the area again during the off season we would stay here again for the $43 rate. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

Great setting on the Flathead River. We were in a pull through site in the middle of the park. The site was level and long but pretty tight side to side. Overall it seemed the park needs some TLC but it was nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a good pass through site, but only an okay destination site. Didn't matter to us as we didn't spend much time there anyway. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Travel Trailer.

We spent an afternoon kayaking on Flathead Lake. Rented our kayaks from Base Camp in Big Fork. The drop off and pick up on the lake or river. Great service and an absolutely beautiful day on the lake.

Nice little park on the river, level grass/gravel sites. pull thu's are adequate a little tight for big rigs. Park has recently been taken over by new owner, was a little run down by previous owner. New managers are a bit overwhelmed with the busy season and trying to keep up with repairs at the same time. Has great potential if they can get their ducks in a row. A LOT of trees!! We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Fifth Wheel.

Park appeared to be an old mobile home park that they're fixing up. We had a great site (#27) that was nice and wide and long enough for our motorhome. There were some large trees, but we were able to maneuver around just fine. Water pressure was excellent and this really is the best park for access to Glacier Natl Park, which is why we were there. We'd stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

Nice park, as it is located on the river. Has a lot of shade and trees, cable, and Wi-Fi. Sites are laid out with the terrain and trees so few are alike. Does not seem to be satellite friendly. Dish will be blocked by trees. Talked to other campers and there are very few spaces in the park that will work for satellite receivers.

Close to stores , restaurants, and service locations. Friendly staff. We understand the park acquired new owners during our week's stay. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Spruce for 4 nights recently. It was fine but nothing to write home about. Luckily we didn't spend much time there.

The location is great if you're doing Glacier and surrounding towns. It's great having the river close by. Just be aware the current is very fast and you have to walk downstream a ways to swim or let the dogs swim. It was very quiet the first night, we had a couple children along and they didn't find anyone that first night. It got more lively towards the weekend but nothing out of hand.

The bathrooms were dirty and not kept up well. Cockroaches on the floor, didn't get swept the whole time we were there. Items fixed with duct tape, dirty sinks. The bathrooms haven't been upgraded or renovated in quite some time.

The sites were fairly level but the section we were in was very tight (I'm sorry, I can't find the site number we had), slideouts were right up to our chairs. There were other areas that were much more open on the perimeter.

Utilities worked great, no issues there.

I'm not sure the owners are putting effort in to keeping it up and it's too bad because the location is nice.

We won't be returning. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

The park is on the Flathead River and the view is beautiful! The utilities were good. Excellent water pressure. The sites needed a little tlc. Everything needed to be mowed. We were there a week and when we left they were in the process. It seemed they mowed a little everyday. The site was long and level. However, it was supposed to be a pull-thru but there was a tree it the front. We had to back out when we left. We would stay again but ask for a different site. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

Beautiful Campground. Borders the river, a very short walk. Wide, level Sites. Cable TV. Relatively fast Wi-Fi. Close to Kalispell for shopping, yet quiet. Most sites have some shade, but you can still use satellite if you don't want to use their cable. Got disconnected from Wi-Fi about 4-5 times in 24 hours, but it was still usable. Why cannot campgrounds get good dependable Wi-Fi? We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

Lovely park right next to Flathead River so you can fish off the banks. Nice large sites, big trees all around. Huge open area for walking dogs or kids to play as well as a playground. Great Wi-Fi and cable TV. Owners are super nice and accommodating. Peaceful, nice park. Definitely would stay here again. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate was for week and a half. Rooftop dish worked well around the trees in site 44, Verizon cell and hotspot worked as did their Wi-Fi. 50 amp power, water, cable TV, and sewer all OK. We enjoyed the Flathead River and 2 members of our party fished there and caught a couple small trout. Convenient to the city and restaurants plus Glacier Nat'l Park. We used the laundry once, too busy the second time we went so went to a laundromat. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Fifth Wheel.

My wife says give them a 10 for site 25. Very level, did not need levelers. Satellite TV worked. Shade tree and picnic table. Full hookups. Paved streets so I could ride my bike. Play area for kids. Some sites right on the Flathead River; other sites with river view. Easy in and easy out. Ample dumpsters for trash. Friendly neighbors gave me advice for a mobile RV repair person and he came out the next morning at 8:30 and finished the repair by 9:15. Only minor negative were speed bumps, but this made it safe even for little kids. Just biked around them. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.
