25 Parks near Swan Lake, Montana
Jun 2016 - $43.00
This is an older campground, but well maintained and nice touches. Paid $43.24 per night with military discount.
The sites are shaded, but we got good satellite reception as well as antenna. The sites are long pull-throughs with plenty of space for our 37' motorhome and tow car. We had rain during our stay, and there was no problem with mud or puddling. Laundry room is clean and reasonably priced.
Miss Helen made the stay more enjoyable. She is a delightful woman who owns the campground and goes out of her way to be friendly and engaging. She even gave us a container and some potting soil for a plant we had picked up on a drive outside of town.
A little pricey for the age of the place, but all in all, we enjoyed our stay there and would stay there again. - villager

Chose this park over a nicer one in town due to the shade trees, and expected to have lower price due to past reviews. But those people had long term rates. Daily is $44.95 PLUS $2 for showers. Way too steep for this outdated country park. Trash bins overflowing for 2 days. Sites narrow but level and long. Voltage low. Laundry load almost $4, closes 8 PM. Cable TV was very good, and Verizon cell and MiFi worked. No info offered from front desk person about park Wi-Fi ,shower fees, rules, anything. Would still be OK for one night except for the price. - Annie's Song

Fairly nice campground with long pull-throughs and decent spacing between the gravel sites. Grass between the sites and a picnic table. Most sites have a tree or two that do provide some shade. No fire pits and personal fire pits are not allowed either. Price is a bit steep, especially since the showers are $2.00! We stayed a week and got one night free and it was still $38.00/night. Lots of things to do in Glacier Park but make sure you visit the little town of Whitefish.....about 5 miles to the west, great restaurants! - AeroScout

This park is located about 5 miles from the west entrance to Glacier National Park along Highway 2. Sites are level. There are larger trees and some tight corners for parking bigger rigs. Owners live on the premises and were pleasant. There is no store, but businesses and restaurants are within 5-10 miles along Highway 2. This is a no-frills, but pleasant RV park. We would stay here again. - gbburgess

This is a pleasant rural CG near the west side of Glacier NP. The roads and sites are gravel with grass between them. All of them would have benefited from a bit more gravel. Most sites are large pull-throughs that have no difficulty with large rigs and towed cars. Tall trees provide shade and they do complicate getting satellite TV, but the long site allowed us to move around a bit and we were able to get a signal using our rooftop system. Although the CG is right off US2 there is relatively minor traffic noise. The owner/manager was quite pleasant both when we called to make the reservation and when we checked in. She has gotten criticized in some reviews because she makes sure that campers know the CG's rules. We didn't think the rules were unusual and her insistence on making sure customers are aware of them is, no doubt, the result of discovering that some people ignore CG rules and then claim ignorance of them. There is WiFi but it is weak and wasn't even working the first day we were there. However, Verizon 4G service was strong and fast. The most unusual aspect of this CG is that hot water is turned off in the bathrooms/showers at night. We are self-contained and don't use CG bathrooms, but this could be an issue for some people. One thing that was impressive was that bear-proof trash containers were placed throughout the park; we've never seen them used except at federal and state facilities. One criticism, however, is that only some of the sites are "big rig friendly". We were in B5 and ended up backing out of our site because the rig in the row in front of us made it impossible for us to avoid a tree as we exited. If I stayed there again I would insist on a spot in the "D" row. - docj

Started out a score of 10 with the beautiful sites in the woods, and perfectly level gravel sites. Then we realized the advertised Wi-Fi was all but non-existent, the sewer hookup was inconveniently high, and the shower head was duct-taped, which leaked and sprayed erratically. We could never get voltage above 114, and that was prior to plugging anything in. A/C on low dropped voltage to 109. Our friends stayed in nearby, expensive KOA, and we would join them there next time. - User3773

This is totally in the woods but a very nice park that is well managed by professionals! Spot was not totally level side to side but was able to level with blocks. Very comfortable spot with good spacing/privacy. To be honest, I could not find my receipt so I'm guessing a bit at what I paid? It was not too much for what it was. I would stay here again for sure! - Dave Alexander

The best campground I have visited this year. The rate is based on monthly stay. I was only able to book a site with no sewer but there is a honey-wagon twice per week for $10 each visit. Sites are spread out and in the woods. Nothing "parking lot" about this place! Fishing pond. Live music on Fridays. Close to Glacier. Great place. - Susan C.

Nice quiet park set on the slope at the base of the mountains. Sites are close to level. Park roads are somewhat steep with tight turns but manageable. Clean hot shower, pay laundry facilities. Wildlife sightings within the campgrounds. Note: LOUD Air raid siren blasted at 3 am, we called the local police, the dispatcher explained that was the call out for the volunteer fire department, not to be worried. - don_church

This is a large park with all the amenities. Playground, swimming hole. Nice store in the office. We had a long pull through and didn't have to disconnect the toad. There were some long term campers. They had gravel driveways and gravel pads and mowed grass between each site.
They had screw in sewer connections. Water pressure was good. They had 50 amps. There was cable TV. Rubbermaid trash cans were placed around the park. The WiFi was outstanding with excellent response time. Verizon Wireless was 4 out of 5 bars; ATT wireless 5 out of 5 bars. There were some flies, but no mosquitoes. We would camp here again. - RVTravelerToo

Very quiet place off the roadway. Level back in spots although there are pull thru too. Clean restrooms/showers and pretty good size laundry facility. We pulled in here with a storm right behind us. We had lost our outside vent cover and had a hole in the top of the trailer. We had purchased a new cover to replace it but no way to get up on the roof to fix it since our trailer does not have a ladder. Mentioned this to the hostess when we checked in that we might have to go get a ladder and she had a ladder for us to fix it. Got it fixed just as a hail storm hit. We were close enough to the office so the wifi strength wasn't too bad. When making online reservations you have to call them after they receive it to confirm. I guess this is a safety feature and they take your credit card # to hold a spot. - JBevans

4 night stay, nice QUIET park-no traffic or trains! Convenient to Kalispell, Whitefish, Colombia Falls (I was here for softball games). Also good place to stay for Glacier National Park. Sites are pretty close in the new section.My only issue was that we ended up in a new part without a fire ring (but didn't notice til we were all set up). Also, there are permanent residences here, also, in another section. We were close to that section and the problem was that one of the residents left the house and a dog inside the home started barking. We left, came back 5 hours later--still barking. Left a voicemail for the manager (7:00 p.m.) and it wasn't long before he came around. Glad he was on top of things! - Susan - Richard Nelson

If you have noisy, running loose kids and dogs, this is the place for you!!!
Sites are very narrow, hard to enter and exit with long rig. Ours was supposed to be 60ft, and our 53ft overall combo hung out by at least 3-4 feet, no matter how I angled it. Elec, sewer, and water were ok. Dog droppings in site and in son's site next to us, and loose dogs (owners???) running around through sites. Along with that, they have a "petting zoo" on site, and the miniature ponies were loose also, and they make more of a mess than the dogs!!!!
Obviously a family "destination" stop for summer trips. Kids running in the roads and down hills in the "free" big wheels and carts available. A free breakfast is provided, and it was just ok. Lack of choices, and depending on time of the morning, lukewarm or cold eggs, etc.
This was an "emergency" stop on a 2 week boondocking trip in Montana, but would never use again, even in an "emergency"!!!!! - GLB

This was by far the most expensive RV park that we stayed in on our trip. We booked by phone and were told that they could accommodate a 38' fifth wheel. In fact we were told that our site was 75' long and that it was a pull through. Our first impression of the park was of a well treed park in a bit of a valley. It was very busy with children running around on recumbent bikes that were low to the ground. Getting into our site was difficult for the size of our unit, and we had to ask someone to move their truck in order to make the turn at all. To say that this park is too tight for big units is an understatement. Although the site was a "pull-through" by name, there was no way to make the turns in order to actually pull through. It certainly was not 75' in length. In fact the rear end of our fifth wheel was very close to the road in the back and there was no room to park the truck in front unless it was sideways across the site. When we put out our slides, the bedroom slide was literally over the concrete table of our neighbour to the left. They could not use their fire pit until we pulled our truck out. They advertised an adult only hot tub, but it was small, dirty, and certainly not hot. We chose not to get in. The indoor/outdoor pool was questionable in its cleanliness and we chose not to use that either. The "free" breakfast was OK, but exactly the same all 3 days of our stay. It lacked any healthy choices except for a bowl of melon. The room in which we ate had a very dirty, smelly carpet on the floor. Supposedly there was free Wi-Fi, however, we were unable to get on at all while at our site. It was possible to access our email at 2 computers provided in the dining hall. The "free" bikes provided were never available, could not be booked, and were used by the same few children daily. On paper the park appears to have many things for children to do, but they are in poor repair. As adults, we found the park too busy, too loud, too tight, and in need of repair. The sites themselves are uneven, and the roads are narrow, bumpy, and have tight turns. This is definitely not a good park for larger rigs. If it had not been for pleasant neighbours, we would never have been able to get out of our site. It required several eyes to help make the manoeuvres necessary to back out and around a turn to the road. We personally will not use this park again. - Durango12

The park has very uneven grounds and site locations. Difficult to navigate through the park and park in the assigned site. Not all sites provide sewer. Very cramped and very noisy all day long and the smoke from the campfires penetrates every RV. It feels like sleeping in a smokehouse. There are hardly sufficient reasons for the nightly rate of 69 or 70 dollars. The breakfast is OK and sufficient.There is nothing for adults to do here other than trying to avoid children on tricycles. The pool is very small, cold and overrun with toddlers and youngsters. The so called "adults only hot Jacuzzi" is a bathtub for perhaps 4 people. The "mini golf" is not even funny enough to describe. Close to Whitefish by car, about 7-8 minutes. Not good enough for us to return here. - LEONIDAS2010

The site was rather short, couldn't get the truck into spot with 40' coach. Owner complained if tires were touching the "grass"...such as it was. Water pressure was not consistent. The restrooms in the main building were very old and could use remodeling. Also, they had a bathroom smell if you know what I mean. That said, it was still a value because we stayed on a weekly rate. It is a good place to stay if you are touring the Glacier Park area. It is one of the few places in the area that allows campfires. - marvls

My husband & I stayed here for a month in our coach. The owners were great! Helped us get into our site, offering to trim branches as needed so we wouldn't scratch getting through the trees. We had lovely shade from trees on both sides, yet had satellite access without any problems. The dog run was big & poop bags were available there to use. The noise from the road (Hwy 2) was pretty loud but not a factor at night when the traffic let up. The park was kept up fairly well - some of the full time residents could tidy up there sites, for sure. - Lisanator

The good: Most sites are long, shady, well separated, and most appear reasonably level. Utilities worked. Wi-Fi was good. They have a very nice fenced dog area. Price is good for what you get; our price reflects week stay.
Less good: We couldn't open slides in our first site because of trees. Many are this way. Second site worked, but slides touched branches. Area maintenance is lacking (like mowing and picking up trash). Front sites are very close to busy noisy highway.
It's not a bad place; just understand what is offered. - Just Dave

Excellent Park. Friendly staff and well maintained. There was a margarita night when we arrived, put on by the park owners. Friendly owners manage the place actively. Very little road noise even though we were the lot closest to the street. Clean laundry facility, overall a very nice place to stay. We'll go back when we are in the area. - David Foy
Jun 2016 - $30.00
Rate is based on Passport America discount. We stayed here based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. Fast, friendly check-in (make sure you pet the cat), large, level concrete pads, and spacious, all-concrete sites. Although along the highway, there was no significant noise and the park was quiet and dark at night. OK cable, no obstructions to the satellites, but little OTA TV. The park WiFi worked well during our one-week stay regardless of the time of day. Verizon cell/data were also very good. The hosts are veteran professionals who excel at making this a great stay, and we'll be back. - Meanderman

Neat, clean park with RV sites as well as motel rooms, condos & boat slips. Restrooms & showers very clean. Good electric. Water pressure about 80 lb, so bring a reducer. Sites are good sized & clean & level, each with sitting pad with table & wood grill. Cable has 20+ channels & is clear. Managers Richard & Fran are the best. Will do anything to help. Have stayed here once before a few years ago & will stay again. - Gerry H

This is a nice, clean park. Close to Glacier and shopping in Kalispel. The owners take a lot of pride in the park and it shows. Unfortunately, the wireless internet system is very poor. Weak signal outside the rig and none inside. The connection is slow and constantly hangs. The owner said they were working on it, but in the week we stayed, nothing was done. A solid internet is a necessity for us, so we may not be back. - barney9376

The park is very well maintained and clean.
It seemed an unfriendly and very discriminatory park. Wifi was okay but not strong enough to play Netflix. The office closed very early which was inconvenient. The sites are VERY close. Neighbors are practically in your unit. Hardly any sites were shaded. - janican

Nice park about 15 miles from Glacier NP. the park was convenient to get to and was close to gas. The park management was friendly and the guy who led us to our spot was terrific. He insured we were perfectly positioned for the utilities. On that note, the utilities including the wifi were good. Roads in the park are a little tight. The spots are all paved and level and all sites have evergreens. - ssyer74

We stay here for the summer from Arizona. We love the tall pines. Some sites have a view of the lake. The park also has a private beach with fire pit that is nice to sit around. The staff is very accommodating to all your needs. The new owners have made many improvements. The bathrooms are all remodeled, the rec room is beautiful and looks like a lodge. The roads are paved (no dust). WiFi is good. The grass is cut on a regular schedule. They have all new picnic tables. The little restaurant has great food with homemade desserts, jams and jelly and more. The docks and boat slips are in the process of being remodeled as well. We are retired RV park owners. It's definitely one of the nicest park we have stayed in during our 40 years of RVing! - monacolover

Spent a few days after the 4th of July in this delightful park. Friendly staff assisted us moving in and full of great recreation information. Clean and comfortable, really enjoyed our stay. Look forward to visiting again.Thanks - Classiccoach2005

We pulled in and pulled out after discussion that this was not what the internet page had displayed or indicated. The site we were assigned was NOT the one discussed and reserved a month earlier via phone. The site assigned would not have accommodated us at all. Next to the assigned site was a full timer small camper and a parked boat in the site next to that. Totally unattractive park that is across the road from the lake and cramped behind a small walk in hamburger joint. Again, not what you see on the web page. - carriage house w/a view
