Glacier National park has several great campgrounds. Over the years we're stayed in several of them. My suggestion, stop at the first Ranger Station or Visitor Center to check on availability when you arrive or get online to the National Park Reservation system to do the same.

This is a great website for finding campgrounds, and reading what others have to say about their experience there. We stayed in Coram, MT when we went to Glacier NP, at North American RV. Here are the reviews for Coram and Banff.

As for inside Glacier, there are no full hookup's. Though most of the campgrounds are nice


As for private, I suggest Mountain Meadow, full hookups, Between Hungry Horse and Coram. About 10 min from the west entrance. If you only want electric and water hook up, I suggest Glacier Campground which is less than a mile from the West entrance. Both have that campground experience.


Don't let the Big Rig picture on their website fool you. They are more of a campground though they have a few big rig sites.



Tell Sue, at Mountain Meadow, or Kathleen Hi at Glacier Campground Robin said Hi!



North American Rv Park is great for big rigs. And smaller rigs like it as well as it's open (that's if they don't care to be in the forest) but it's not a campground! It was designed as a big rig park so you won't find a lot of pine trees. Just ornamental trees. Though I haven't been there in a few years and they changed the configuration of the park since we owned it. Not sure if they moved the ornamental tree's or not.

Over on the Scamp forums this issue is being discussed with the result that with the heavy snows this year, some of the roads are still closed. Might need to put off another month.

Why is the Glacier Topic closed?

Is there a reason that the topic was closed down?




I wanted to let the original poster (Daniel know that yes the Going to the Sun Road has not opened as of yet should be in the next week or two). But there are millions of other things to do in the park besides drive over the sun road. There is a million acres to the park, with ton's of things to see and do. Don't let the Sun Road delay detour your trip. Enjoy!

Not sure which direction your arriving from but totally recommend a day discovering Flat Head Lake and Big Fork MT................ Wonderful!

Oops

I was the last poster and I am a moderator in training. I believe I accidently closed the Glacier Thread. I have reopened it.

Sorry but I'm learning after all I was able to re-open it.

Thanks for letting me know.

Norm

I've heard everything from "The Going to the Sun Road isn't going to open at all this year" to "in a couple of weeks". What I can tell you is as of today (7/5/11) 16 miles of the road is open from the west side & 13 miles are open from the east. I was going to take a helicopter ride to shoot some photos of the plow work, but they wanted $455.00 for a half hour flight - a bit too rich for my blood. I'll have to stick with the park's photos: Glacier National Park's Flickr Plowing Photos.
