Liked this campground when we arrived- loved the mountainside trees and ambiance. Very nice lady in office. She offered a site by the laundry/shower house, but then we drove the steep road up and found a narrow, short site at an odd angle. Since it was only for a night and we liked the location, we pulled nose in, same as the neighboring RV did, since it was impossible backing in. Site was slanted, very unlevel. Other camper had 3 boards under tires. Most neighbors were tenters or in small trailers so it was unwise to send 25-28' motor homes to this area. (never saw the "big rig" area but must be better sites). Lots of wood smoke late at night and families lined up for the 2 tiny, dirty showers at 10:30pm. Laundry room small but ok, Verizon works, some tv access. A nice place for the price but do check your campsite before moving in. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Motorhome.

A gem of a campground. Located very near West entrance of Glacier National Park. I was lucky - the Going to the Sun road had just opened so I was able to enjoy the drive through beautiful scenery. The campground has a Bistro offering breakfast and dinner at reasonable prices. Laundry facility available as well. Sites are situated on a mountain slope but are level and easy to access. The rate reflects Good Sam discount. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a delightful RV Park. Situated on a mountain slope, the individual camping spots are mostly cut into the forest of trees. "Pull through" sites appeared to be 'spots' along the cross roads that connect the uphill/downhill roads. These appear to have little privacy (though the picnic table, etc., is blocked by the RV) and water and electrical hookups are on the "wrong side" requiring longer than normal hoses/cords. Some of the "regular" sites are "Siamese" so one is back in, and the other is "front in." Water and power is placed on the dividing line between these paired sites. Our assigned site was sideways to the mountain slope: and did not have any part that was comfortably level (our small Roadtrek RV does not have leveling jacks). This was a minor inconvenience and (if warned) I'd have brought some boards to raise up the low side. The dump station was located near the office and was convenient to stop by on our in-out trips (we do not have a toad). This park, located near the entrance to Glacier National Park has a "stop" for the "red bus" tours (but you must reserve a tour in advance and arrange for them to stop for you.) We stayed 4 days and were very pleased with this park for its ambience and proximity to the national park. We did not use their WiFi, but our tablet got good connections to Verizon wireless (2 or 3 bars). We camped at Glacier Campground in a Motorhome.

Lovely wooded campground just a mile from West Glacier. Feels like a State campground, but with laundry, big rig space pull asides, and Verizon services. Cozy camp style cookouts for breakfast and dinner near office. Location sets the mood for visiting Glacier National Park. Ladies in the office were very helpful and full of tips on tackling the vast area. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Motorhome.

Ideal spot to stay while visiting the Glacier National Park. Not only is it convenient and close to the west entrance, the staff is friendly, the sites are wooded and private, the price is very reasonable, and we were delighted to be able have a campfire in the evening. More showers would be nice, as there are no sewer hookups at the sites (however, there is an on-site dump station). We were in site F5, which backed up to some woods and we were spaced out from adjoining sites. We were here for four days and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground just outside Glacier National Park. Lots of shade trees and very quiet except for the occasional freight train going by somewhere close enough to hear it several times during the day and night. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived without a reservation and found the park staff to be very accommodating and friendly. We were assigned a back-in RV site with plenty of room for our 5th wheel trailer with three slide-outs. All of the sites are back-in. The RV Park is located in a densely forested area and all of the sites are well shaded and have a fire ring. The front office sells a decent bundle of firewood for $7. All sites are separated from each other by a dense forest that gives each camper a lot of privacy. Access roads are paved and in good condition. The RV Park is generally big rig accessible however; some turns are a little tight and trees at some sites make it a challenge to back in. The RV Park is on a slope so most of the sites are not level, but with a full set of leveling blocks we were able to come close to level. Electric (30 amp) and water hook-ups were convenient, on the left side and closer to the front of the site. The electrical connection box did not have a breaker and the voltage was very low. The water system consisted of a flexible plastic pipe attached to a spigot with a hose clamp. The water pressure was very poor. Water from a faucet would slow to a trickle after 3 – 5 seconds. None of the sites have a sewer connection. The sewer dump station is near the RV Park entrance and the turn going into and out of the dump site is tight. There several bathroom / shower buildings in the park. Bathroom buildings and fixtures are a little dated. Each building has two small shower stalls. Bathrooms and showers were in fair condition and could use a deep cleaning. The ventilation fan was very dusty and did not keep the shower area ventilated so the building had a musty smell. The RV Park laundry has four washing machines and two large capacity dryers. The machines are older but in good condition and clean; $1.00 to wash and $1.00 to dry. There is a restaurant on-site with a large open pit BBQ. The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner in a large covered outdoor seating area. The BBQ ribs, baked beans and soup were great. The RV Park is approximately .25 miles from Highway 2 and there is a little noise from passing vehicles. There is also a railroad line approximately .5 miles away and the horn from the passing trains can be heard day and night. The RV Park is approximately one mile from the west entrance to Glacier National Park, which is very popular, and reservations are highly recommended. Verizon 3G cell signal was good with three bars. Sites at the southwest side of the park, up the hill, offer the greatest privacy. We stayed three nights, paid $86.67 and received a 10 percent AAA discount. The RV Park also offers a 10 percent discount for Good Sam and AARP. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved the location and setting of this campground. It really does feel like camping used to be in the early 1970s. Unfortunately, it's still sized and laid out for a park of that vintage! Most sites, while private and fairly spacious, are not large enough for very many larger rigs. Our 5th wheel is only 35' and it was a challenge negotiating the tight corners and our site, which was a very unlevel pull-through. Our site while long enough had a definite curve in the middle which made setting up and leveling a challenge with three slides and trees all around! We had some electrical issues at our site. Our surge protector kept tripping us off due to low voltage. When we found another electric connection box hidden in the shrubs, we switched to it and it worked a little better. The owners were friendly and they did provide daily trash pickup at each site. The laundry room was not fancy but the 4 washers and two large driers worked well for a reasonable price. The big bonus of this campground is the convenience to Glacier National Park: you're literally minutes away. The BBQ cafe in the campground was nice. We enjoyed a good rib dinner there. There's a taco/burrito stand across the highway which was excellent! We also used the Great Northern Rafting company right across the highway from the campground to take a wonderful whitewater rafting trip. Smaller rigs will find this campground a great deal! We camped at Glacier Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great Park, with nice people running it. Rate is with Good Sam card. Negatives are: weak Wi-Fi if you are up on the top of the hill. Difficult to get level with big rig, and tight turns can be handled but carefully, too few showers but they have really hot water and lots of it. Food is great at their outdoor cafe. Yes, I would like to spend more time there: close To Glacier Park. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We considered a slightly lower evaluation with the lack of sewer and shared power and water stanchions. 30AMP is breaker-less and the left site has to set up to run water and power under the rig to reach the stanchion. Setup then takes away the space for patio and awning. The restrooms and laundry are clean. Water pressure to the sites is poor, sometimes barely a trickle. There are two bath houses to service 175 sites. Access to Glacier west entrance is three miles away. To tour the park, leave your rig at the Transit Center and take the shuttle system which can carry you all the way to the east entrance at St. Mary. Cell phones have good connectivity but Wi-Fi will not connect. The free Wi-Fi at the CG lodge is good. When its busy it can be slow, but otherwise is good. We didn't utilize the BBQ since we were out of the CG everyday in Glacier National Park. The staff here is friendly and very helpful. The "at site" garbage pickup in the mornings is pretty nice. Black Bear have been seen in the CG so food stuff needs to be stored safely. Portions of the CG are a little tight so caution when moving big rigs looking for a space. Don't be surprised at the Amtrak and BNSF trains whistling through the night as they stop at or move through West Glacier. We would stay here again. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is, indeed, the way camping used to be! We loved this place. The campsites are large and all are well shaded. We were camping with another couple and felt like we had our own private campground because the sites were so large and private. The owners and staff are absolutely wonderful. We ate breakfast at the outdoor cafe twice (the Eggs Benedict are wonderful), and dinner (for the barbeque) once. Loved the cafe and its atmosphere. We liked the site trash pickup. As others have noted, it is really handy to the West Entrance of Glacier National Park. The WiFi was a little weak at our site, but we really didn't mind going up to their cozy living room/office to get our signal. We highly recommend this campground and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground, a mile from the West Glacier entrance. Campsites are wooded and shady. It was a bit tight, but doable for our 34 foot fifth wheel. The staff is WONDERFUL. They are friendly and helpful. Garbage is picked up at the site each morning as wildlife has been seen in the campground. There is an outdoor cafe Wednesday through Sunday that serves breakfast and dinner. Did not have a chance to eat here, too much other stuff to do, but the menu looked good. There was no sewer, but does have an easily accessible dump station. Would stay here again. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Advertised as 'the way camping used to be' and it is true. It's not a resort, but they do have a small store, laundry, and a cafe/BBQ on site. The staff is really friendly and helpful. For those that may bypass it due to the lack of sewer hookups, they offer a pump out service by truck for a fee. Park rules state no generators, but there is a boy scout troop here using one for hours right across from the office and they don't seem to do anything about it. The campground and buildings are very clean. This is a fabulous alternative to staying in the National Park without power, especially on hot days. We would stay here again.

Friendly staff, clean but small restroom closest to our site. Sites are dirt and it was a bit muddy from the rain. Sites are not very level. Lots of trees. Overall, a nice atmosphere. Just be sure to have the ability to level your RV. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed three days in a pull-through site. Deeply wooded sites with occasional bear sighting thrown in. We liked this park, especially for the price and would have rated it at the highest rating if they had park wide Wi-Fi. Friendly folks in the office, nice greatroom, and good access all made for a nice stay. We camped at Glacier Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
