Recommendations for Glacier National Park.

Any great camping parks in or around Glacier with full hookups? Headed out that way this summer.

Hi from AZ. . . the East Glacier KOA is very nice, and convenient to the East side of the park. The West Glacier KOA, not nearly as nice, right at St Mary. . . enjoy, Craig

think you have this reversed; the West Glacier KOA is very nice while the East Glacier KOA is fair and at St. Mary.

We are planning a trip to Glacier too!

We prefer staying in the park but being the 100th anniversary of the NPS it may be extra crowded this year. Plan accordingly.

Many Glacier is in a Forrest and near great trailheads. It used to be walk-on only, but starting tomorrow it opens for reservations. We liked Rising Sun. Not as big as MG and easy access to Logan Pass.

There are no full hookups in the park, so far as I know. We've stayed at the Glacier Campground in West Glacier several times. It's close to the west entrance and there is some vegetation screening between sites.

http://www.glaciercampground.com/

Otherwise, perhaps you've thought of traveling with a generator, gas can, and jerry can for extra water (with funnel) which would get you through a longer stay in a no-hookups site inside the park.

There are 2 CGs (Fish Creek, St. Mary) in the park that take reservations. Highly recommended that people make them ASAP as soon as the reservation window opens, as the campgrounds in the park do fill up during the high seasons.

We stayed at West Glacier KOA. Big park, well run, very clean and off main highway so we could walk our dogs up and down their almost private road to get them their exercise and us as well. They have a nice dinner every night, with a joker as a cook who livens everything up.

Very close to west entrance to the park. The NP system will probably be jammed this year, so we are doing some work camping in July and August in the Black Hills and then moving around to some parks after Labor Day.

Enjoy

Bud
