Question Camping at or around Glacier National Park

We will be going to GNP June of next year and I would like to have some information about parking the motor home in that area.

HERE is a link to an earlier discussion of camping in or near Glacier. There are several suggestions for campgrounds including in the park.

While planning that trip keep in mind there are vehicle size restrictions inside the park. As I remember there are campgrounds on both the west and east side of the park.

We've stayed at Apgar c.g. in the park with our 40' MH.We always try to stay in the national parks themselves. Have fun planning your trip!

We stayed at Glacier Meadow CG in East Glacier Park. The sites are large, not a problem for 40+ feet. They offer water and electric with no sewer, but they come around with a "honey" wagon and dump you a couple of times a week. The park is run by very nice, helpful people. It is also located near a bridge (just west of the CG) where all the goats come to lick minerals off the rock. Cool.

We spent 5 days last July at Columbia Falls RV Park in Columbia Falls, MT. It was a great CG only 10 min. from West Glacier. Nice clean park with full hookups, 50 amp,water, electric, sewer and cable. I think they also have WiFi. The town is small but several grocery stores, restaurants and sporting good stores to keep you supplied. We have stayed at several other CGs over the years in that area but we liked CF RV park the best. Good luck and enjoy your trip. Make sure you get over Logan Pass and a trip to Polebridge to the bakery.

I agree, we stayed here and loved it. Also, if you take a tour bus. The Old red ones with the open roof, They will pick you up here.
I HIGHLY recommend you doing that if you really want to see and enjoy Glacier
