Good paved road going into and in park, right on Hwy 2. Many sites are paved and the road in the park is paved, unlike a previous reviewer posted. I didn't notice any highway noise at night and very little in the daytime. Train tracks are about a mile away and all you hear is the whistle at night. Wi-Fi connection was very bad for speed and disconnecting. Good Verizon signal. Nice and clean with strict park rules one being no lights on at night. No campfires at sites. They have community campfires by the office nightly at 7 PM. Nice laundry room. Site #2 was $350 for 7 day full hookup. No discounts. I would stay there again. - Filster

This is a lovely old RV place. Our site was gravel/dirt with lots of shade. No TV. Wifi spotty at best. We would stay here again. - travel2011

Very odd layout, but clean. Our spot did not have sewer, only water and electric. It was in the back of a field that we had to drive across to get to our site. The site was extremely unlevel. It was not worth the $44 we paid. No Good Sam discount. Pretty setting with shade. Showers were clean but VERY small. - MargieTX

This is an absolutely gorgeous place to stay while exploring Glacier National Park! KOA's always seem to be near a road and a bit run down, not this one. This KOA is surrounded by mountains and trees, the landscaping is very well kept and manicured and the grass on every site is green and, again, well maintained.
It's hard to find anything at all wrong with this KOA, it really is - by far - the best KOA we have ever stayed at. There is a train within earshot but it's not too bad.
This is off the beaten path, a mile away from the highway and there isn't really anything next door to this, the closest things are a mile down the highway (2 miles away) in either direction.
This KOA has a little restaurant on-site, an ice cream shop and very clean facilities everywhere. If you are looking for a genuine getaway while you explore Glacier you can't do better than this.
There was plenty of room for our 5th wheel in the pull-through site we got and it's just a super nice very quiet little place to stay. - CORockies

The camp ground is beautiful & part of it is undeveloped with trails, which is perfect for dog walking. Workers are friendly & helpful. Spaces allow room for privacy & stretching out. They offer a variety of options for your stay &for the location & quality the prices are very reasonable. Even the prices in the gift shop & check-in area (food/staples/etc) are reasonable for this type of place.
With a café that offers meals & an ice cream shop you won't go hungry. They also offer hot tubs & private pool restricted to adults, while offering a huge playground & larger pool for the kids. They also offer showers for the handicap w/out a person having to bring their own equipment. Several shower locations as well as a laundry room make sure you're clean & comfortable. We've stayed in many places including non-KOA places & this campground is by far one of the best. The only comparable place we've stayed is also a KOA in Grand Island, NE.
I've seen comments from people about how expensive KOA is & the prices did deter us as well, that is, until we learned that prices are different for each establishment & there are exceptional KOAs that don't cost an arm & leg. Before you dismiss a KOA check the price & what's offered; you may just be surprised.
For an extended stay while you explore Glacier, Hungry Horse & Swan Valley this is the perfect place. There is parking for additional vehicles AND for boats if you're going to be boating during your stay. A new pool for kids & more spaces for staying (cabins as well as RV slots) have been added.
The only thing I would appreciate being improved is the WiFi. The covered area is small & sometimes intermittent. I anticipate this will be taken care of by our visit next year. This KOA hosts the NorthWest Pacific Woodcarvers Assoc. every year in August & my husband & I have attended for 4 years now. - Dreamer62

This is a nice campground with gravel roads and pads. We were escorted to our site. The pad was a bit narrow, but adequate for our motorhome. The sites have large grassy areas between sites. Our premium site had a concrete patio with fire pit and benches for roasting. Our AT&T worked well, but we could never find the campground wifi network. It is very close to Glacier National Park which accounts for it's higher price, but we would consider staying here again if we are in the area. - SMorin

Campground is heavily wooded, sites are somewhat near each other but the woods blocks views and provides lots of privacy. Nice clean bathrooms with clean showers. Also a laundry available, we didn't use it but it looked fine. There are cabins available to rent which looked popular. There was a nice inside lounge with TV, area outside of office with tables, benches, shade, etc. Wifi only worked by the office. There was a casual covered restaurant open 7:45 - 12:45 Wed through Sun. The food was good and coffee great. Very nice, quiet campground. Loved the setting. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this place! About a mile from the Glacier Park entrance, so very handy for visiting the park. My favorite campground on a month-long trip. There's also a handy sewage dump station. - mntraveler

As others said, the sites are wooded, making them private and shady. Our site was near the office, making it a long way from the bath/shower building. Cell service on AT&T was irregular. WiFi in the office was very slow. Since we usually use the campground bathrooms and showers, the long uphill walk to the bathroom was inconvenient. Also, near the end of the season (and I imagine at the beginning), the nights were chilly. Since there is no heat in the bathrooms, it was cold getting out of the shower! Also, only one of the 2 showers in each building was able to be completely curtained off for privacy. Staff was very friendly, price was good and we would definitely stay here again and request a site closer to one of the two bathrooms. - Eldereaglewatchers

We were at the top of the hill. Beautiful quiet shaded campground, all sites feel very private, although you are close to a neighbor on one side. We had good cell and data on Verizon and ATT, staff very friendly, very easy access to the park, would definitely stay here again. - sam and hope

Beautiful park. Very close to Apgar Village by bike/walking trails. Apgar Village is a great place to shop, eat and view Lake McDonald. My family really enjoyed staying here. It is great for bike riding and right off of Going to the Sun Road. There are no showers, but the bathrooms are very clean. It is very difficult to get a spot, so get there in the morning. The park hosts were friendly and can tell you more about openings than the visitor centers can. The sites are not always level, but they are beautiful and somewhat private. There is a free park shuttle stop at the entrance to the campground. The shuttles are nice, but expect to wait in line at Avalanche Creek and Logan Pass to transfer along Going to the Sun. This was one of our favorite parks on a 5 week road trip. - MargieTX

We had a great stay at Apgar, love that camping in the woods feeling. We found a site big enough and relatively level for our trailer in Loop B. The site was spacious and had a picnic table and fire ring. So quite at night and located in Glacier Park which made it very convenient for sightseeing. We had the Senior Park Pass so can't beat the price either. Several bike trails as well as the Park amenities at Apgar Village. There is water available at several locations around the Loops as well as several restroom facilities. The restrooms were dated, but clean and Loop C had large sinks for dumping dishwater.
We would definitely stay here again. - jtl2

Very primative. 180 spaces. No reservations, no hookups (power or water), NO showers. Flush toilets, cold water sink. For a park of its status and visitor population, I find it absurd that there's no shower facilities. The campground is generally always full, but there's no aid in securing a space. First come, first grab. It's a very large triangle walk between the campground, the village, and the Visitor Center-- about a half mile between each. Sites are roomy, pullthrus. Some walkways are wonderful, others are literally on the street. - writedesign

Well maintained. Rangers and hosts were very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Most campsites were medium to large. Beautiful country. - o and d

Nice campground in a heavily wooded area. We were in Loop B with a 35' MH and it was a snug fit both driving in and parking the unit. Limited generator hours, but that isn't a problem. Had a deer wandering behind our site. No wifi or cell phone reception, but after a day of hiking you are ready for bed anyways. No showers in Loop B. Also no water connections except at the dump station area, so if you need water be sure to stop there and fill before setting up camp. Our site was B80 and while it looks like a great drive thru site on the map, it is right at the bottom of a hill and driving thru is difficult with a large vehicle, had to back in to be able to center the rig between the trees. - cagvc

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. - charles_from812

We stayed here in October at the end of the season at Glacier National Park. We had plenty of room as there were very few other trailers. However, if this was during the busy season and the park was full, the sites are close together especially if your canopy is out. The laundry is $1.50 and dryer is $1.50. Overall, this park was good and convenient to the west entrance as well as Columbia Falls, Whitefish and Kalispell. - SotoL-L

Check in was fairly easy except for the strange tax calculation (it was too high) for which we never got a reasonable answer. It is tight getting around. Narrow roads with lots of trees. We were traveling with friends, and neither of our sites were remotely level. We needed lots of blocks in the front of our motorhome and never got completely level. We had to use a foot stool to be able to reach the entry stairs comfortably. Sites are narrow and very close together. Our tow vehicle would only fit in sideways. We were not able to extend our awnings due to trees. Surprisingly, we were able to get a signal for Directv despite the trees. WII FI was unavailable most of the time. Very weak Verizon signal even with our cell booster. There are loads of trains and the associated blowing whistles especially at night. Even though we were in a site towards the back, the road noise from highway 2 was loud and constant. The positive aspect is the proximity to Glacier. Also, it is an easy drive to Whitefish and Kalispell. - Free

A pleasant park and a good choice while visiting Glacier. The sites are close together and the roadways are not particularly wide but in our section of pull throughs this was not an issue. Our site was just long enough for our large truck and 38' fifth wheel but we needed to park the Jeep across the road. We were located in the last row of the park and that gave us a more spacious feel. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Verizon was 4G, 50 Amp was not strong and there is some train noise. - PBuds

We loved our stay at this rv park. Location to the west entrance of glacier national park was only 7 miles.
Electrical worked well we did not have any problems. Dump station available, stay for 7 nights for the price of 6 and get a free honey wagon.
The owners are great, very helpful and friendly. We reserved for a week, extended another week and then added 5 more days. Would have stayed at month if we had the time. The site we were in was a little narrow due to trees but the site next to us is included to give you plenty of space. We will go there again. - LHeil

This is a very rough campground. Trees too close, dirt path for the road. Power but no septic, no internet, no amenities. Terrible value for the price and very hard to maneuver in a motorhome. Won't stay again. Very closely spaced also. Sites are not level. - Butch and Deb

Trains, Trains, and more trains...LOUD HORNS all throughout the night. Sometimes as 0ften as every 15 minutes! Road noise with truckers using jake brakes was just another annoyance during the night. Weedy, messy park with small narrow sites. And I can't forget to mention the quiet hours from 10pm to 6am...what quiet hours?? Rowdies partying up to 2am with slamming car doors, yelling, and carrying on with absolutely no consideration for others...None! Can't say I'll stay again even if the restrooms were clean and the showers were hot. - Rick Frazier

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

If you have to stay here, then by all means bring plenty of leveling blocks. I do not think there is a site that you can pull in and be level. We watched several newbies come in and spend 1/2 hour to an hour getting the trailer level. The sites turned into a muddy mess after a two hour rain. Place could use 60 yards of gravel. Our site had a 10x10 spot of gravel, the rest dirt, (mud) Oh and the advertised WiFi, forget it., we were less than 50 yards from the gift shop and could not get a signal. The site advertises showers, but there are only 6 total for all campers, do the math with 53 sites, you better like a 11pm shower, The restrooms were clean enough, but the showers needed a good scrubbing. The RV dump is on a hill, so you cannot get your tanks emptied unless you are in a 14' long RV. After that your nose is pointing downslope about 20degrees. - LostTrail

This is a very nice RV park, but unfortunately we were not very happy with our site. We were given a very small site for our 40 ft. 5th wheel, and it was impossible to get level. We have an automatic leveling system, and in our 19 months of full-time travel so far, this was the first time we could not get level. We were staying there for 2 weeks and really wanted to be in a better site, but they said they didn't have anything else available. To be fair, the campground is really nice if you get a better site than we had. The sites are spaced out very nicely with trees so you have some privacy from neighbors. I wish more campgrounds were set up like this one instead of stacking everyone right next to each other with no privacy like most RV parks. Another thing about this park that we didn't like is the "kid tax". That's what our community of fulltime traveling families call it when an RV park charges extra for kids. Since our kids stay inside our RV that we bring with us, it makes no sense for RV parks to charge extra for them. Hotels don't do this and they have an extra bed to make. And this park didn't even have any kid-friendly amenities like a pool or playground so I'm not sure why they charge extra for them. The park has free WiFi which is nice, but we used our Verizon hotspot. Verizon coverage was very good there. It's convenient to the west entrance of Glacier. I also appreciated being able to receive packages there. Since we travel full-time it can be hard to catch up with mail and deliveries so that was a plus. Overall, we would stay here again, but if we do I just hope we get one of the nicer, larger sites. - Love2Camp777

Lovely smaller park with sites nestled between trees. Wi-Fi is dependent upon site, but we were in Site 13 right behind the office and got fairly good service. We were also able to get satellite reception in this site, but many sites would not be able to get Wi-Fi or satellite due to trees and there is no cable. Water pressure low. Small dog park but good roads to walk dog on. Had live music one night in open meadow area. Nine miles from entrance to Glacier National Park. - Carol Warren

We stayed here for 2 weeks. The front desk service is fabulous. The wi-fi was pretty good, our site was not too far from the office. I loved the foliage between my site and the neighboring one, however we did hear highway traffic, but it was not horrible. Great playground, and big-foot scavenger hunt for the kids. Fabulous location near West Glacier entrance. Sites are narrow, but love the big trees and gazebo with grills and tables. - barrygoodtimes

Very nice setting with lots of trees and nice amenities. However, the Wi-Fi was horrible! Poor cell service also, 3 bars average on Verizon. The campground is on a hillside and the sites are long but narrow. Steep slope right outside door on gravel lead to several falls by us and our friends. Very small picnic tables, like for kids. Some other units could not fully extend their slides due to trees and we could not use our awning. The office staff was pleasant, but somewhat incompetent. Billing was all screwed up, with double charges and delayed refunds. Lots of excuses about the billing and the Wi-Fi but little or no action to correct it in a timely manner. I would not stay here again! There are way too many other parks in the area with better service. This would only be a last resort. - ftrvingcgst

This is a lovely park with lots of potential. A few tweeks and this place will be fantastic. Paying for showers isn't really a "resort" kind of thing. The free muffins that are top notch, now that is resort style! Overly picky about check out and in, that isn't resort. Fully stocked store, good Internet, that's a resort! Spaces that are too small and not mentioned on check in, not resort. Heavily wooded, lovely setting with privacy, that is a resort! A few tweeks and another season, this place will be all set! - fulltimenomads
