Glacier National Park Campsites - Choosing The Perfect Campground and RV Park For Your Trip

When planning to rv or tent camp in beautiful Glacier National Park, campsites and campground searches can be confusing as well as challenging. Choosing the wrong campgrounds can limit your access to all of the beauty, entertainment and activities that Glacier has to offer. Glacier Park isn’t confined to just a small area on a map. It is an extensive National Park, taking up a sizable area in northwest Montana. However, Glacier’s beauty is only accessible through a few main entrances. When searching online, many campgrounds will promote they are close to the park, which may be true when looking on a map, but if you end up 100 miles away from a park entrance, you will most likely be disappointed in your campsite selection.

At the same time, Glacier National Park campsites inside of the park have drawbacks as well. Not only is Glacier Park heavily populated with tourists and traffic, there is so much beauty and activity to take in outside of the park, you are limiting yourself to only one area and missing out on seeing and exploring so much more. So when choosing from the assortment of Glacier National Park campsites available, you want to find the perfect balance between being close to the park, yet able to enjoy the fun and charm of the communities that border Glacier.

Columbia Falls is the gateway to Glacier Park, so tent camping or rving in Glacier National Park campsites in this charming town allows you to experience not only easy access to Glacier National Park, but also to all of the surrounding communities as well. Columbia Falls is perfectly located so that you can spend a day enjoying the town’s gift shops and restaurants. In addition, they even have a waterslide and drive-in movie theater. In Columbia Falls you are only minutes away from shopping at large retail stores, taking a drive up to enjoy a gondola ride atop of Big Mountain in Whitefish, driving fifteen minutes to go go-carting or on a helicopter ride, or even driving into the remote, rugged wilderness up the North Fork Road, which begins in Columbia Falls. Spend a day visiting Polebridge, Montana and enjoying the primitive West entrance to the park, where you can take in the beauty of Kintla or Bowman Lake. One word of warning, this is not suitable for an rv!

Of course, when staying in outlying Glacier National Park campsites, you will also want to spend part of your camping trip exploring the park. From the gateway to Glacier community of Columbia Falls, you can arrive at the park entrance in minutes. There is no other place like Glacier National Park in the continental U.S. Plan on spending a few days exploring the famous tourist and sightseeing locations such as Lake McDonald Lodge, Apgar Village, Logan Pass and, of course, Going To The Sun Road. RVs aren’t permitted on the actual road, due to the narrowness and winding nature of the trail, but you can reserve a tour on Glacier’s vintage red buses, called Jammers, and sit back and enjoy the breathtaking views. You might even see some of the wildlife in the area, such as grizzly and black bears, moose, mountain goats, bighorn sheep and so much more.

A trip to Glacier National Park is something that, once you’ve experienced it, you will want to keep coming back. You can never see all of the beauty of northwest Montana in one trip, but staying in Glacier National Park campsites in the outlying community of Columbia Falls, Montana ensures you will have easy access to take in all that you can on your vacation.
