We are thinking of going to Glacior Nat'l Park and would like to know if there are any campgrounds on the Eastern side of the park.

If not then maybe close to it as we are coming in from North Dakota and do have a tow vehicle.

Thanks.

Two years ago we stayed for one night at a very small campground that was two blocks from the east enterence. It was not much more than a field with hookups run by a very old man. We when to the west side of Glacier and stayed at the KOA. It was really nice flat sites with a great view of the mountain. On the way from the East side to the west side we passed several small campgrounds between the road and a stream. By the way, the drive was mostly down hill through the woods, very nice drive. We did hear of a KOA on the east side that was well thought of also. We took the red bus tours from West KOA and had a great day on the "Going to the sun" road. Glacier is now our number two foverite spot after Yellowstone.

When in ND, stop and see the outdoor dinner and show in Medora. Teddy R.'s park is right outside Medora and is interesting.

Have a great trip and enjoy yourselfs.

The KOA on the east side is St. Mary's KOA and is a great location for that half of the park. If you do stay at Medora there's a great campground run by the city there. It's right by the entrance to the Nat'l Park.

If you go in from the west side, through Kalispell and that area there are several parks near Hungry Horse and West Glacier. We stayed in a neat CG called Glacier RV Park (original huh??) Anyway, this is the closest park to the west entrance of Glacier. It is very much like wilderness camping, with sites that sit in the woods and tree buffers between them. We were there in June and it was sorta cold at times. The park has 30 amp, but that is really all we needed. No sewer, but an easy dump station. We had a bear in the back of our site that kept aggravating folks so they set out a barrel type trap to see if they could move him back into the park. Restaurant on site called Cajun Mary's has good breakfasts and dinners. The staff is outstanding and very helpful on local information on things to see and places to go. Make sure you get over to 'goat lick', a few miles up the road.
Amazing site if the goats are out.

The scenery is more spectacular on the west side due to the greater abundance of moisture on that side of Logan's Pass. You are going to be impressed with Glacier Nat Park

We stayed at the KOA turn left in the middle of St Mary and go on the paved road about 1/2 mile. Another one in on hill on the northEast side of town. The KOA is easier to get in and out. There is another one on up the road called BrokenBackRib run by the Indians, No one was there to take any money so Several Campers just parked. I think it used to be nation CG. While at GNP make sure you visit Waterton NP just across the border. And from there go about 30 miles and visit the Great Canadian RV Resort and Barn Dance.. Make RSVS before you go there. One of the best deal and show I've been to. s/Toby
got a new computer and cant find where the Numlock key is to take off The Indian park I think use to be a US Nation campground or something similar.
