West side of Glacier Park camping.

We have narrowed down next summers trip to two parks on the west side of Glacier.



Both are nice looking parks. Both have similar rates. #1 is in the trees, 40 acres, hiking trails, in the mountains, 9 miles from GNP, kinda like a state park but with full hookups less cable and VERY limited satellite reception but hey, with it light till 10PM who needs TV right? #2 is out in the open, full hookups, cable TV, no campfires and in town 20 miles from GNP. For anyone that has been to either, what are your opinions? Fore everyone else, where would you stay and why? See poll.

We have not been to GNP. Last year we went to Yellowstone ant stayed west of the park. The only part that we wish we changed was that we stayed closer to the attractions ( if you could call them attractions). All the driving was the problem. Point I am getting to is it is worth staying closer.

Not to muddy the water, but North American RV Park in Coram, MT is only about 5 miles from the west entrance of GNP. We stayed there in 2008. Sites are a little narrow, but they are open so you would be able to get satellite. There are full hookups and free Wi-Fi. Rates for 2012 were $40 a night. As TheJeep says, closer is better. I would go for Mountain Meadow or North American.

I'd forget hookups & stay at Apgar in the park. Which ever you do, be sure to get out to Polebridge Mercantile for a cinnamon bun!

We just finished a trip and stayed at Columbia Falls RV Park. Very nice, very friendly, very convenient. Would stay there again.

We also stayed at Columbia Falls RV Park in August and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It is a very nice park and the owners are great people.
