General Campground Information

Glacier National Park

We are at the perfect location to visit Glacier's pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains, and spectacular lakes. With over 700 miles of trails, Glacier is a hiker's paradise for adventurous visitors seeking wilderness and solitude. Relive the days of old through historic chalets, lodges, and the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road. This year, in addition to needing a Park Pass to enter, Glacier National Park is continuing a vehicle reservation system to reduce congestion, improve visitor experience, and protect park resources. In 2023, a separate vehicle reservation is required for four areas of the park: Going-to-the-Sun Road, the North Fork, Two Medicine, and Many Glacier.

Check-In / Check-Out

Check-in 3:00 PM
Check-out 11:00 AM

Guests who violate their departure date will have their equipment towed at their expense and incur an additional daily site charge.

Late Check-in

If you expect to arrive after our front desk closes, there is a late arrivals box with everything you'll need to check in. Located at our front kiosk is a brown box. Inside, you'll find your site map with directions to your site. If you have a cabin, it will be open and your key will be inside. Please be sure to stop by the front desk in the morning to register for your stay. Text us at (406) 345-6009 if you have questions.

Altering Reservations

Call us anytime to make changes to your reservation to move, add, or subtract days. A reservation's dates cannot be changed to a new week inside the cancellation window listed above. Changing dates within the window will result in a cancellation (forfeit one night deposit) and the creation of a new reservation. After arrival, early checkouts can be granted on a 48 hour basis.


Cancelations result in a refund of your deposit minus a $25 cancelation fee. As your arrival nears, cancelations result in a forfeit of your one-night deposit according to the following schedule:
  • RV Sites: 48 Hours
  • Tent Sites: 48 Hours
  • Camping Cabins: 7 Days
  • Deluxe Lodges: 14 Days

The cancelation must be before 4pm (MST). For example, if you are scheduled to arrive on July 20, 2024, for an RV site, you must cancel before 4pm (MST) on July 18.

Pet Policy

We follow the KOA National Pet Policy. Good behavior is required. Dogs of any breed that are hostile or aggressive will be asked to leave the campground, along with their owners. Bring the leash. Dogs must be kept on leashes no longer than 6 feet when outside their owners' vehicles or rental units. Do not leave a tethered dog unattended. Remember manners. Constant barking bothers other campers. If your pet is too vocal, you'll need to find other accommodations. Service dogs are welcomed although leash and aggressive behavior rules apply. You are required to pick up after your animal fury friends. Our pet fees apply to our lodging accommodations and vary depending on size and type of accommodation.

Resort Fee

Resort Fee: A nightly resort fee of $15 allows us to offer exceptional amenities and activities for no additional cost. Every guest has open access to our beautiful landscaped gardens, two large pools, hot tubs, saunas, kid's area, yard games, and huge pet playground. We also provide nightly activities like live music, rafting and fly fishing demonstrations, a magic show, and birds of prey show. The only time you will pay extra is if you take something home with you like a tie-dye t-shirt.

Site Guarantee

Lock a specific site for $50 per reservation.

Wi-Fi and Phone Signal

We provide WiFi throughout the campground. However, a number of factors impact its strength; including things like number of guests, weather conditions, the proximity of our antennas, and even nearby RVs. Therefore, we cannot guarantee great WiFi at your site. However, we have provided several tables and chairs near our office where the signal is strong. Cellular service at our campground and throughout Glacier National Park varies by provider.

Our nature trail is a great pathway for bikes. Please supervise young children and be mindful of heavy traffic areas.
