We had issues getting the camper (21ft) into the site. After a bit of work we got it in, but not the way we preferred. The location was great, it's a small walk down a path to the lake. Generator hours are a bit of a pain, they allow 8-10 am 12-2 pm and 4-6 pm, enough to charge batteries during breakfast, but we were always gone past 6 pm so no power to make dinner. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff were available and friendly. This is a nice spot on McDonald Lake, we were able to walk down to the lake from our campsite. The rangers do a nightly program in the amphitheater. We stayed in a site near the entrance to loop C (no generator loop). The sites in this area were mostly level but not so much toward the back of the loop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great campground. Trees everywhere. The west side of Glacier NP isn't nearly as scenic as the east side. But the campground was beautiful. We have a 35' fifth wheel and an F350 w/ 8' bed. It was a challenge getting out of our campsite but after moving a few site markers and scrubbing a tree or two, we were rolling. The sights on the inside of the loop have door and awning facing street. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I made reservations months ago and by the time we arrived the office was closed. Imagine my happiness when on the window our name was listed with our camp-site number. LOVED THAT!! It was a very nice looking camp ground with trees, nice bike/walking paths, clean restrooms (newly remodeled) with showers! Everything I read said there were no showers. They take tokens but it is a nice addition for those people who have no other options. The lake is gorgeous and was just a short walk from our camp-site. This isn't your swimming lake though...Brrrr!!! We had a nice bike ride to the "Village" with most of it on a bike path. The only downside: Mosquitoes. We couldn't go out in the evening to sit by the fire because they were horrible. That and no hook-ups was why I "docked" them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fish Creek is the only park campground on the western side of the park that accepts reservations. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel pull-offs. There are no hook-ups and no showers. Generators are permitted for two hours each morning, mid-day, and evening. We stayed at this campground for 7 days while exploring Glacier NP. Our site, A-23, was large and overlooked Fish Creek. We were pleased and surprised to have cell service (Verizon). The staff was friendly and helpful, and presented nightly programs in the amphitheater. The Going-to-the-Sun Road did not open all the way to Logan Pass until the afternoon of June 24. We enjoyed this campground and would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Fish Creek is one of the two campgrounds in Glacier National Park that accepts reservations. Located on the northern shore of Lake McDonald, potential users should be aware of the regulations and limitations pertaining to each of its 4 loops. Loop “A” is capable of holding larger motorhomes, but operators of these vehicles should take care when passing between the two large trees near sites 15 & 16. Loop “B” may create maneuvering problems for vehicles over 30’. Loop C prohibits any use of generators and campground literature warns that vehicles longer than 28’ are unable to navigate loop “D”. This is a heavily wooded campground, so at many of the sites vehicle interiors will be quite dark, even at mid-day. Because of its location on the more densely populated western side of the park, the campground receives heavy use during the summer season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
