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. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our second stay here, but only stayed again because it was the only one with openings in St. Mary or Waterton for that matter (Canada Day and 4th of July).

We just don't feel that there is good value for the money here. $43 for a water/electric site that was not very level - it took both the leveling jacks and wood under the tires/jacks to get level. Also, they first tried to put us into one of the "A" loop sites near the entrance, but it was so tight I could not even open the slides, so we asked to be moved. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

St Marys Lodge has a good espresso coffee bar. Fuel is a crazy price so fill up in Kalispell or Browning. The local supermarket has most basics but you will pay a premium price for them so again, stock up if you can.

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. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The scenery from this park was absolutely stunning. It's built on a hill so the sites are not level. St. Mary doesn't really open until the middle of June so we were early. This area is remote or on the reservation, which I haven't decided which I should blame. We have AT&T cell service. We had no cell service. When we did get service, it was from Canada and our cell provider warned us of international charges. The campgrounds advertise to use the Internet you have to go to the laundry, which only has a couple chairs and it's inconvenient to use. I did find somewhat of a signal in my camper with using the open network call "campground guest". If you are looking for more services, we would suggest you stay in West Glacier area. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clean but old. nice people in the office, very friendly staff and very helpful with travel ideas into the park. Beautiful views, a bit of a leveling challenge. the only problem I had was that the restrooms and laundry are down the hill from the RV park. Perhaps I would get electric and water only on the level grass right near the office. Wifi was dicey, but our Verizon worked very well. Fills up early and no refunds on reservations. This park is about $15.00 cheaper than KOA. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a third-generation family business and the family & staff are warm, genuine and very helpful. You feel welcome the moment you step into the place! The full-service sites, on the hill, have the very best views of the park and lake but they can be a bit of a challenge if you're not sure footed. The hill is very steep so, when you step out of your rig, you are stepping either uphill or down hill, depending on your orientation in the rows. The soil is loose and granular, so its easy to lose your footing. The sites are very, very long so there is plenty of space for your rig and tow. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You're located at the east entrance to Glacier National Park, on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. The "town" of St. Mary is open from June to Oct, with very limited services. There's a small grocery store, but its limited in size/qty & very expensive. Being on an Indian Reservation, there is no liquor for sale. Stop in Great Falls, Kalispell or Missoula to stock up on essentials, food, drinks.

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.

We have not camped here before but this was okay to visit Glacier National Park. We had a full hookup pull-thru site. Our site was on the side of a hill, the unit needed about 3" of blocks to level. Our 34' 5th wheel needed some jockeying to get in and out. We camped at Johnson's Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
