Price included taxes and Good Sam Discount. The views from our campsite were stunning with St. Mary lake and Lower St. Mary lake along with the mountains surrounding them visible. We had made reservations on line several months ago, so check-in was fast and efficient. Clerk was nice and explained the rules of the park and gave us a lot of information. The site was fairly level, although I did have to jack up the back a bit. Sites are so close together that the small trees between sites (that offer little shade) kept us from extending our awning. However this wasn't really a problem as the winds on the eastern slopes of the Rockies make leaving your awning out when not there impossible. There is no cable, and we weren't able to pull in any stations with our antenna, but you are next to Glacier National Park, so who has time for TV? There is Wi-Fi next to the office, but we had a good Verizon signal, so did not use it. There is little road noise here, as you are quite a ways above US 89 and it is not too busy at night. There was a full moon while we were there, so the star show wasn't quite as good as it would be otherwise. There is no playground for children, but was not a problem for us. We stayed here several days while touring the east side of the park and would stay here again. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The adjoining cafe is a very good place to eat and hasn't changed in the 45 years I have been going there. If you are going into the park expect delays on the Going To The Sun Highway as they are doing road construction on the east side. There was no access to Sun Point, Wild Goose Island viewpoint, Sunrift Gorge, or Bearing Falls due to construction. Leave early to avoid the crowds in the late afternoon.

We stayed here in a fifth wheel and had a very un-level space, but once we used all the things we had to level it the space was good. A little close to our neighbors though. We could see the beautiful St. Mary's Lake from our space. The laundry was clean and the machines worked. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a free shuttle to the park provided by the National Park Service. Be advised if you have a motor home or trailer, the length of the unit and/or tow vehicle cannot be more than 25' total to travel up the West side of the Road to the Rising Sun. So the best advice is to park your rig at the visitor center and take a shuttle up to the glaciers. There are lots of picnic areas. We also traveled to Waterton, Alberta, Canada to view several of the old hotels in the area.

Sites are up in the hills. You need to do some leveling on all of the sites. It's beautiful up here and the Verizon signal is great. The staff is helpful but beware of the 48 hour cancellation policy as they stick to it. We would camp here again. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

You are overlooking Glacier National Park. Beautiful place.

Conveniently located to the East Entrance of Glacier National Park. This campground sits on the side of a steep hill making it difficult to level rigs. Bathroom and laundry facilities are located at the bottom of the hill with a steep climb or descent to access bathroom and laundry facilities for full hookup sites. The laundry room was nice and well maintained. Wi-Fi was advertised to be available in laundry and office areas. However, this did not work at all, even after the owner rebooted the system. There is a café on-site. A lot of seasonal workers seemed to reside here. Sites were narrow and short. Grass was overgrown. Staff was friendly and helpful, however, we will probably not stay here again. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Two very small bathrooms for 157 RV, cabin, and tent sites. AND the bathrooms are very small, outdated, and not very clean. They say they clean them twice daily, but with this heavy usage it never looks like cleaning has been done. The sites are on dirt and not particularly level. We had good Wi-Fi reception using our Jetpack. This place is definitely overpriced for what is offered. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

What it has going for it is an amazing view of the mountains and lakes. After that, it's awful. The roads are so dusty, everything becomes covered in hours. There is no wi-fi other than at the office and that is quite poor at best. The sites are unkempt, not even close to level and in our case, hard to even walk on. Clearly no effort or money goes towards maintaining the place. After seeing the KOA across the street, we'd have been better off spending the extra ten a night to stay at a decent place. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

The place is dusty and the wifi didn't work. We had no AT&T service. Their restaurant had pretty good food with good service. We tried to change spots since it was noisy and dust flying around from every passing vehicle. On the plus side, great location for going into West Glacier. We won't stay here again.

Very pretty spot in the "tenting area" of the park (site 29). A picturesque valley complete with horses (on the far side) and all the adventures of a beaver pond (frogs!), and a nice grassy field for Frisbee and baseball games provided by our children made them enjoy it. These sites only have 20 Amp circuits so the AC didn't work, but as the weather was a little cooler so it wasn't missed. No sewer in these sites, only in those at the front of the park. Nice easy access to Glacier Park and the Going to the Sun Road. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is our second visit to the campground. While it is pricey, I recognize that they have a relatively short season and seemingly and had every site filled each of the nights we were there. Staff very friendly and helpful. Other than the price the only other negatives are the sewer connections are not located conveniently close to other (water and sewer) services and some of the sites can get very muddy after a rain. That said, we would definitely stay here again when in the the area ... as we love Glacier National Park, We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Spectacular views from campground which is situated on a hill overlooking lake and mountains. Sites are terraced, so not terribly level. Adequate gravel roads for easy in and out. Tight between spaces with a little vegetation and some small trees between some units. Not much shade if you're in Row B, but the view makes up for it. Shore services were good. Satellite reception was good. Verizon 3G and cell service worked well. No Wi-Fi at campsites, but is available at the office. Café on site with yummy homemade bread and a knock out tuna sandwich. Convenient to Glacier National Park. No extra amenities to speak of - no pool, playground, etc. A park more suited to adults rather than families with children due to layout (families with small children would be better served at KOA across the road which was nice). We would stay here again. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Its the old moniker of location, location, location! Right close to the east entrance of Glacier NP and the stunning drive of Going to the Sun road. Registration folks not sure what to do with a motorhome towing a car and 4 people but they finally charged us $5/day ea for two additional people. As other reviewers have noted; not much in the way of amenities and the restaurant wasn't all that it was cracked up to be (try the Two Sisters up the road, north a little bit). Showers were by tokens and our guests reported they were clean and apparently well maintained. Great views, gravel roadways, killer speed bumps near registration, tenting area is down the hill, past the motor home area, elec only area is out front - right next to road and registration and cabins - if they are full, you will pay for full hookups whether you want them or not. Pay attention to the No Trespassing signage on the hill where two of the roads continue; its NOT the motor home park! Will probably look for something else next time. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here one night until I could move to another place. Only 30 amps and the two sets of speed bumps by the office are crazy; even at 3MPH. Sites are Very narrow, roads are all dirt with some stone, and sites are weeds and some stone. The dust from the roads is incredible and so is the wind up the hill,where all the "full hook-ups" are. I would not stay here again. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here because of the closeness to Glacier Park. Sites are level and some shade. We were able to get satellite . Laundry is busy and $2.25 to wash. The cafe is over priced, $18 for 3 small pieces of chicken. The whole town has limited restaurants and high prices. Might stay here again.

We stayed here one night after overnighter in the St. Mary Visitors Center parking lot. We chose the sites in front, which are all back in, but fit our 62' length just fine. When these front 18 sites are full, you are just inches away from your neighbor. They are 30 amp with water only but no sewer. The sites up on top are full hookups. Great overnight place, and just outside the gate to Glacier National Park. There is a restaurant on site. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.
