Glacier National Park

What is the best route to Glacier National Park coming from the East on I90 in a 43' DP with a toad? Any recommendations for good campground around the park?

Don't know how far East you are coming from but HWY 2 run all the way across several northern states. Nice road that runs thru several smaller towns. Lot of oil field workers on it lately.

Glacier Meadows RV park is on HWY 2 about 1/2 way between the East & West entrance to the park. Very nice people run it. Not a resort but very nice country setting.

If you want to stay in Missoula before heading to Glacier, Jim & Mary's RV Resort is a decent stop. It's a little pricey but easy to get to and out of and on the way to Glacier. We took US 93 north from Missoula then SR 35 around the east side of Flathead Lake.

We were a bit concerned about that little dinky looking road but it wasn't that bad and the scenery was gorgeous. Others had recommended when I asked about it and we're glad we took it. US 93 goes up the west side of the lake and we were told there was a lot of truck traffic on it and the scenery wasn't as pretty.

We stayed in the park at Fish Creek but I don't remember seeing sites big enough for you there although there were some big rigs in the Apgar CG but they don't take reservations and don't have hook ups (I think).

There are places outside the park though but I didn't research them.

Hi msy4us,
Been to Glacier many times. My assumption is you'll be staying on the east side of Glacier. I always stay at the KOA in St. Mary. Consider taking Route 89 from Great Falls to Browning. After Browning Rout 89 gets a bit twisty and winding. A better choice is State Road 464. It is pretty flat, straight and light traffic. At the end of 464, you will turn left to enter St. Mary from the north. Staying in St. Mary means you are right at the eastern entrance to the park (Going To The Sun road). A bit north is another entrance to the park that provides the trail to Grinnell Glacier, Iceberg Lake and more. Both entrances can keep you busy for over a week.
