West Glacier KOA is a top-notch RV park. We've stayed there several times. It is closest to any other RV park on the west entrance to GNP. We will definitely go back there anytime we are in the area.

We are staying 7 nights at St. Mary's starting August 20th. Did a lot of research ahead of time and wanted to be able to make a reservation. We made our reservations over six months ago to be sure and get a spot. We've never dry camped, but we're now prepared with two 6V batteries and two Honda gens. Can't wait!

you'll be fine.

we camped at Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton with our Roo 23SS, for a total of 15 nights, without any hookups.
and we just had two 12v batteries and one Honda 2000i.

We loved Many Glacier campground in the east side of the park. They don't take reservations so we made a reservation at St. Mary's for the length of our stay. After setting up, the next morning we drove the truck to Many Glacier to see what sites would be available that day. We found an open site that would fit our 31' toy hauler and paid for that site. The Rangers credited us for the unused days at St. Mary's. We marked that site with reserved signs and the went back and moved the toy hauler. Many Glacier is very scenic and offers great hiking nearby. We stayed 8 nights.

If I was going to do it again, I would spend at least 4-5 nights on each side of the park. It is a large park and difficult to get from one side to the other.

We had 4 days in the 30's with rain and fog in August. With our Honda generator we were fine without hookups.

Been to both sides. West side KOA last year was great. Miany things to do on the west side plus towns. Are closer and safe. Just returned from the east side st. Mary KOA it was a great park with very helpful people. Not much to do on the east side You can get the red bus tours from either side they are the best way to see the park. Remember you'll be in the mountains so bring layerd clothing. One night last week it got. Down to the upper 30's but warmed up quickly in the morning
