We stayed at KOA on East side. The "Red Bus" tour picked us up right at the KOA office. Take the BUS that way the driver can enjoy the view across the "Going to Sky" road. I wouldn't want to drive and try and enjoy the view at the same time. Had a great driver too. He was a Geology instructor so knew his stuff.

Depends on which side of Glacier National Park you want to camp.

We preferred the east side. St. Mary's campground was nice, we stayed there for 6 nights. The upper (C) loop had most of the larger sites. At least a dozen 30' plus sites. No utilities on site, but the quiet and views were outstanding.

The best place we ever stayed at GNP was Two Medicine Lake CG. Dry camping but lots of water faucets available to fill up your potable water tanks. Also lots of flush toilets that the CG staff kept very clean and tidy. Best way to approach is from the east through Browning (don't stop there if you value your rig) along Hwy 2 to East Glacier Park. From there turn right in to the park and follow the signs to the CG. A few years ago it was $20 per night plus you park entrance fee. There is a store there for basics but you'd be better off packing most of what you need.

We have stayed at St Mary's campground in the park. Sites are available to reserve up to 6 months in advance. Many campsites are fairly private. As stated before there are no hookups. Generators are allowed during two 1 hour periods during the day. Great campground and we will be going back next year.

Just got back from Glacier. Didn't camp but drove "The Road". The Red Bus is the best to view. Open top, great for viewing. You could also do the NP Shuttle but they fill up quick. Sorry that I couldn't give you information on campgrounds but the Red Bus is spot on. Took the hike at Logan Pass to Hidden Lake Overlook. Only got as far as the Overlook because of bear in the area. While it was super clear at Logan, the second hike was going to Avalanche Lake. It was raining there. No hiking for us there. It is beautiful throughout the park.
