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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great 'Mom and Pop' type RV park in close proximity to Glacier National Park. There is a lovely walk down to the river at the back of the park, great spot to watch the sunset. There are plenty of trees in the park which does interfere with satellite TV reception, but there are a few local channels you can tune into. They have a great laundry system - you book a time and pay at the office - the laundry is then for your sole use for that time. The washing machines are huge and a load, for washing and drying is $3. The owners are friendly and helpful - our only comment would be that the sites are pretty close together - just wide enough for our 40 foot rig and 4 slide outs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This spot is rustic and very nice. We stayed two nights and very much enjoyed this place. Great hosts and a pretty location. We would recommend this site for people who understand it is a campground park We camped here in a Motorhome.
We checked out five different parks near Glacier NP when we were in the area without our RV, even tho we did not stay at any of them. Of the 5 this park appeared the most comfortable. Spaces were roomy and appeared mostly level. It is under some trees but not "forested". Flowers were abundant and there were no "hearty partiers" when we drove thru as in the other parks. We would stay in this park when we return to the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate based on monthly. Owner definitely likes her flowers, this is the main plus of the park along with the closeness to GNP. (Only 8 miles.) The owner does give you the riot act upon arrival and makes it very clear if you are here a month you can't use her restrooms or have 50 amp. Satellite is difficult to due to the trees so many people move several times. Hot water heater is turned off at 10pm and the gates are closed. If you have a late evening you will have to open & close. Parking can be pretty tight. No outside mats allowed. I did my laundry in town as there are 2 washers/dryers and it was easier than scheduling. Wi-Fi is very sporadic: if you want dependable service she suggested you use your own as I offer this as a free service. Next time I think I will stay in Columbia Falls as it is only 5 miles away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of my favorite campgrounds because the owners are there almost all the time and they make the smokers and pet owners strictly adhere to the rules. We camp here because we love the fresh air and the quiet times in this park. These attributes are actually becoming hard to find in most RV parks but not this one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park tucked in the woods. Sites were level and utilities good Nice path thru the woods to S.Flathead river. Close to GNP 8 miles away. Yes, you do get the riot act about dogs but it does keep everything equal. I would like to rate this park higher but with no cable, gravel pads and roads and limited sites where you can get satellite I cannot. The rate was weekly. I would come back again We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. Clean. Very little road noise from highway 2. Close (est. 10 minutes)to West entrance to Glacier National Park. Nice setting, flowers, landscaping. Can walk a path to the river if so inclined. Efficient and friendly office staff. Easy pull in sites with level crushed rock pads. We stayed here in a motor home. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is clean and adequate; everything works. However, there is a sign up in the office window stating that the property is for sale and there are signs that some maintenance is beginning to be deferred. This was not enough of a drawback to make the park no longer nice, though. There are lots of trees and a trail down to the river. The lady who owns the park is very helpful and knowledgeable about the surrounding area and made some good recommendations about what to do and see. Since we were there at the end of the summer season the park was nearly empty; this gave us a lot of quiet and space around our site which we enjoyed. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Shame on the person's review who stayed here in August 2011. We were here for the month of August, first by accident, then by choice. Our site was spacious and everything worked like it should, including the Wi-Fi. The owner was friendly and only stern with those that took advantage or didn't follow the rules. If you have a precious little dog that only you can stand, it's on you. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Attitude of owner and appearance of park rate this place a three. Very small sites with little or no grass. Campground in dire need of maintenance. Not at all pet friendly. Hot water turned off in showers at night. Stayed here because all other campgrounds were booked. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We would not stay here again. The owner was rude. The campground is dusty. There are lots of rules. The showers are closed from 10pm until 7am. They were not busy when we were there and I can see why. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This was a very nice campground, everything you need, you can even walk down to the river from camp. It is close to glacier Nat Park. The park had wide sites, trees and was very comfortable. We stayed here a week. Nice level campground and sites, other campgrounds were on a hill. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park; very pretty, nice spaces. They do allow dogs; however, in my opinion, the owner is NOT dog friendly. When you arrive, you get rudely read the riot act about following her rules. (This is 2 seconds after you arrive and she hasn't even seen your dog.) Then you have to sign her rules along with a statement saying that if you don't follow them you will have to leave immediately and she will not refund your money. The rules weren't all that bad, but other campers were also upset about being chewed out upon arrival. We lived in fear of our dog accidentally barking once. It was ridiculous. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very pretty, more like a state campground than a RV park. Lots of trees and privacy. Restrooms very clean and nice, large showers. Owners very friendly and nice. Wish they were all like this! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Older campground that is in good shape. Lots are big enough for big rig and I had room for the truck. River was close for nice walk and trash locations were very handy. It was a challenge to get DirecTV but I got an adequate signal. Nice location just outside Hungry Horse and close to Park. I would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an older park that's been reasonably well maintained. The gravel interior roads and sites are relatively narrow and treed (a few could use a trim), but we were able to fit our 45' motorhome plus toad in carefully. We were able to get a satellite connection for TV and Park Wi-Fi was stable and reasonably fast. Verizon cell phone coverage was satisfactory. The park is convenient to Glacier NP and set back enough from US-2 that road noise wasn't an issue for us. The park doesn't have a lot of amenities, although the flowers still in bloom in September and the short walk down to the Flathead River were neat surprises. Staff was friendly and helpful and the owner lives on-site during the season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very average park with a wonderful staff. When I made our reservation, the manager told me that our car would not fit on the site with our truck and trailer. So, when we got here, I was not surprised by that fact. Knowing what to expect is important. The park is located on the left side of Montana Route 2 going north. The entrance sign is small and we missed the turn, but there was no problem turning around. If you are here in the summer, look for the lovely flower beds at the entrance. The interior roads and the sites are gravel and level. The sites are narrow, separated by grass, and fairly close together. There are lots of evergreens here, but we had no problem aiming our TV dish and getting good reception. The free Wi-Fi is reliable and quick. The park is located 8 miles from the entrance to Glacier National Park. Being close to the park was one of the reasons why we chose this RV park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall, this is a nice quiet campground very suitable for adults and convenient to Glacier and Whitefish. The spots are a bit tight for large RVs (ours is 40 foot with 4 slides). We couldn't put out the awning, and the slides touched tree branches on one side. The campground is on Highway 2 but the noise is surprisingly negligible. You will hear the trains blow their whistles occasionally!. There is a path down to the river where you can fish (with a license of course). The Wi-Fi is sketchy. We were 3 spaces away from the hotspot and the connection would come and go. Many times we couldn't see the network at all. The staff is accommodating. We originally intended to stay 3 days and ended up staying 10 days. We had to move one time. One minor issue is they wouldn't give us the weekly rate since we didn't originally book a week. We've had many campgrounds honor the weekly rate whenever the threshold was met. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our 36' MH fit just fine. Park has very friendly staff! Shaded sites, and we still received a satellite signal! We didn't use the restrooms or showers, but our traveling companions did, and they rated them "excellent". Close enough to Glacier. We would definitely come to this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a pull through site and there was enough room for us between sites. (We have no slides.) Good access for Glacier. There is no cable TV and we were told we could get a few ANALOG stations with the antenna from Spokane, which we did. I didn't think analog tv existed anymore but it does here! Overall a good stay, clean showers. Laundry you make an appointment to use. Glacier Grill nearby was a decent meal. We would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is OK, it's close to the west entrance of Glacier Park (8 miles) nothing spectacular, very quiet, with lots of room between sites. We might stay here again, but would look at other places nearby before deciding. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is nicely laid out RV park on level ground with a good separation between sites. The roads and driveways are gravel and there are quite a number of mature trees between sites creating both shaded and unshaded sites. The park is back a bit from the highway and road noise was minimal, especially at night. The Wi-Fi was free and good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is probably one of the best we have stayed in and have been here many times. The owners are very nice but have strict rules that they make everyone adhere to, and they live right in the park. We will always stay here when we visit Glacier National Park, which is usually once a year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park; however, for big rigs it is tight. The sites and roads are narrow with tree and foliage overgrowth making matters worse. If the trees were trimmed it would be a needed improvement. Big rigs need to stay off of Row A. The staff is friendly. We would check out other campgrounds if we returned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a wonderful experience at this campground! They were very accommodating to us and our group that consisted of seven adults and four dogs, one tent and two fifth wheels. The park was very well maintained, the owners were friendly, and yes, they have rules and you must follow them, but the rules are not out of line and are by no means "strict", but are common sense rules for the comfort and safety of everyone. We are hoping to return and will definitely stay a Canyon RV Campground again. We highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Tent.
Although located on busy US-2, this campground is shielded from the highway by a buffer zone that contains a number of large trees, so noise is not a problem. The Wi-Fi service provided is very good, with a strong signal and consistently satisfactory speed. The laundry arrangement in this park is unique. Rather than the normal coin-operated machines, you are asked to pay prior to being admitted to the laundry area. The machines (2 washers and 2 dryers) are new, but the fee of $3 per load (wash & dry) is among the highest that I’ve paid in my travels. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A wonderful park: we were a group of 7 with 2 RV sites and a tent site. Owners are wonderful and go over the rules during check-in. They are very strict and it shows in the up keep of the campground. Beautiful trees at each site. Some complain regarding dog rules and smoking rules but 2 in our party were smokers so they kept cans of sand and water with them at all times. For those who hated the rules: this is Montana and they have problems with wild fires. Who wants to put their RV in a site littered with butts. We will be planning another trip here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Found the campground to be very clean and well kept, and the staff is very friendly. Has campfire enclosures at each spot, wood is available to purchase, and there is a small private catch and release pond where no license is required. Close in availability of small grocery store and other shops and very close to the entrance to Glacier National Park. I highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owner operated. Clean, well kept, with level, but narrow pull through sites. In the site we were in, our satellite worked fine, and the free Wi-Fi worked great. Owner was friendly, but is very firm on park rules, particularly pet rules (we travel with 2), and took the time to spell them all out at check-in. But in fairness, I didn't find any of her rules or pet rules to be unreasonable, and we didn't have any issues with the owner. Park is just a few miles from the west entrance to Glacier NP. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pluses: pretty park, attractive entrance, nice plantings, trees between sites, has a AAA rating & they take Good Sam. Negatives: Narrow sites, not a lot of room to maneuver getting in & out of site. Lots of rules. Can't have anything on the grass such as a mat. Everything has to be on the gravel site. Owner initially friendly, but very firm about rules: even circled items on her rule sheet that were important to her. On our last day there we made a bad judgment in leaving one of our 2 dogs in our rig while out for the day & yes, it broke one of her rules because he barked most of the day, we learned later. I couldn't believe how furiously angry she became over this. She had left a note on our RV to come to her office when we got in, which we did. She punched her hand to emphasize each rule we broke, and how: "IT'S CAMPERS LIKE YOU WHO CAUSE CAMPGROUNDS TO MAKE A 'NO DOGS' RULE." When I tried to apologize she, responded furiously with, "SORRY DOESN'T GET IT!" The other rule we unwittingly broke was we reuse dog waste bags, and save it up to throw away when we leave and this didn't set good with her either. At least we clean up the waste! I felt that we were getting the brunt of all her anger over us sorry campers. Her final comment was she was going to "let" us stay that night, but we had to leave the next day, which we were only too glad to do. There are plenty of other campgrounds around this area. I will never go there again. I thought she was overly angry for the offense and needs to either get out of the campground business or take an anger management course. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well maintained park. Friendly people in the office. Some sites have trees hanging into the sites. Can be difficult to miss tree limbs. It seems that most trees in parks do not get trimmed. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is not a bad campground and the owners are friendly. However, there were too many restrictions and odd limitations. For example, one shower free, $6.00 if you want a second one. The shower house is closed for a couple of hours for cleaning during the middle of the day and is locked in the early evening. You can't park your car sideways so it will fit in your space. I don't smoke, however, If you do smoke, you are not allowed to leave your space while smoking. There are several other nit pick rules to follow that make it feel like the campground is designed to make the owners feel comfortable at the expense of the paying customers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location close to many things to see. We were here two weeks waiting on RV repairs after hitting a deer. The owners were very helpful and even kept our site open for us indefinitely until we we able to give them a leave date. Our only complaint is the sites are narrow and when the campground is full, as it was most of the time we were there, it is difficult to drive down the roads between the campsites because either campers or tow/pull vehicles are in or very near the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price reflects the Good Sam discount. It is a shady campground with grass and flat, large sites. The WiFi was fast. The bathrooms were very clean. The womens room only had 2 large showers. There's a trail down to the Flathead River. There is some road noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is conveniently located to West Glacier and the Going to the Sun Road. We had an easy in and out with our 40' motorhome. There is a fun trail down to the Flathead River. But, we were near the back of the park and had low voltage of about 113 throughout our visit. We think this was a serious problem because of the potential damage to all of our electrical items. Also, our wi-fi connection was spotty. We could not connect our satellites because of trees. The owner gave our friends a hard time about driving in too fast and raising dust - an unfriendly way to start off. This is a rules-oriented park, complete with a separate sheet of dog rules, which are just the usual rules. There are lots of No Pets signs around, too, but it is easy to walk your dog along the perimeter of the park. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Canyon RV is in the Big Rig book - so being 45' we selected it for our week-long stay in the Glacier area. It's a great location and the staff are super friendly and helpful. The grounds are pretty and it's very quiet. BUT: it's very, very tight. We struggled to get into our site; and are a tad concerned about getting out of it as well. Our site is gravel (as is the entire place) and we can't get completely level. We do have WiFi at our spot; but the connection is sometimes spotty. Not a big deal since the Big Rig book said WiFi wasn't even available at the sites (so I guess that means any connection is a bonus). We'd recommend Canyon RV - but maybe not if you're as big as we are (45') and you're not an expert at parking (as we're not). Happy Travels! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is very well maintained and it is obvious that the owners take a lot of pride in it. The grounds are very attractive with flowers, birdhouses and green grass between sites. The sites are gravel and there are beautiful, mature trees for shade but it is not too heavily wooded. Both the owners and the hosts were very helpful and friendly. The sites are an OK size but we were here when there were hardly any other rigs and so don't know what it would look like with rigs on either side of us. If TV is important to you, you will be disappointed. I don't know about satellite, but our antenna only picked up 3 channels (NBC, ABC and PBS) and they were a little fuzzy. The WIFI is better than it was when we arrived. The owner bought a new modem and that has improved performance, but it still bogs down now and then. As far as the previous reviewer's complaint about the cancellation policy, that person is correct. I knew of this policy because I asked when I made the reservation. The information was not volunteered. The cancellation policy is more extreme than other places and so, for that reason, I feel it should be posted on the website and it is not. We would return here again but would probably not make a reservation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
CAUTION: This campground has a 50% cancellation fee for any cancelled reservation regardless of the notification period. We gave them over a month advance notice and we were denied our request for a full refund of our deposit of $215. I have a detailed spreadsheet with all our reservations including specific notes for cancellation policies and I have no notes in my records regarding this severe cancellation policy, so I don't believe we were told of such a policy when we made our reservation. Also, there is nothing on their web site that documents their cancellation policy. Buyer beware! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 5 nights in a 31' motorhome. Prices go down after Labor Day. It is very conveniently located to Glacier and the towns of Hungry Horse and Columbia Falls. The park is well maintained and the owners have a wonderful laundry that you use by appointment so no waiting for a machine! Highly recommend for a visit to Glacier. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Many pull-thru sites. Great WiFi. 8 miles from Glacier National Park entrance and nearby to Huckleberry Patch store. Gravel interior roads and sites with some grass. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Hours for laundry and hot showers a little limited. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice clean park with nice, level pull through sites. It is only 8 miles to the West entrance to Glacier National Park. The owners stay on site in a fifth wheel and had a very nice Work camper couple assisting them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice spot that we used as a base for Glacier Park, Whitefish and Big Mountain. Narrow/shallow sites but they had us park the truck on the site in back. You get a half sized table because the site is so narrow. Very nice washer/dryer room but very expensive. A really pleasant place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
