Nice wooded campgrounds with plenty of space between sites. Clean bathrooms—no showers. No hook-ups. Free dump station and free water. Campsites are mostly level and each have a nice big fire pit with grill and wheelchair accessible picnic tables. You can run a generator only between the hours of 8am to 10am, 12pm to 2pm... more

“The least impressive campground at Glacier, but has internet”

Reviewed Jul 21, 2018

Overall Rating

Situated on the west side of Glacier, though near Lake McDonald, Apgar is large and heavily wooded, which means there are basically no views from the campground itself. We stayed at Two Medicine and St. Mary and visited the campgrounds at Cut Bank and Many Glacier. All of those have direct mountain views from the campground as well as ... more

Apgar Campground has been one of our favorite campgrounds by far. There are no hookups but a dump station and fresh water are on site. Honestly, I like that it doesn't have any hooksups because then the price would be crazy high, I'm sure. This campground is first come, first serve, so plan accordingly. We arrived on a Sunday after... more

“Beautiful fall color in the trees”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2016

Overall Rating

Only A, B, and C loops are open now its half empty which is lovely. Restrooms have seen better days but it's a decent NP campground. However, much better views can be had at some of the other campgrounds on the east side.

Intermittent cell signal with booster.

You have to be fair: The campground is a good one, especially if you score one of the more private sites in the front of the loops on the right side. We had a big private area for us that couldn't be seen from the street. But, we were there in the busiest time of the year (last week of July, first week of August). We stayed in Kali... more

“If you find a good site, provides great access to Glacier park”

Reviewed Jul 25, 2016

Overall Rating

Checked the Glacier National Park calendar on fill times and days of week. Arrive early in the morning to scope out sites. If a site does NOT have a ticket on the site post, generally means that the current camper is leaving that day by noon. Note - current camper can extend their stay up till 11:00. If you find a site that is occu... more

“Off Season Camping here is incredible”

Glacier is incredible. Lake McDonald is incredible. If you come in October when the campgrounds become primitive and all the tourists are gone its really incredible. You can camp for up to 30 days and the rate drops to $5 because they turn off all the services and most things in the park are closed. This applies to most of the campgrou... more

We are sure the views would be incredible, wished we would have been able to enjoy them (too much smoke from the forest fires). The Going to the Sun Road was the scariest road we have ever been on in our life, but is a must drive road with incredible views.

Reviewed Aug 27, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a busy park and we were there in the height of summer so competition for spots is fierce. However the campground has lots of spots so as long as you get there early (before 10 am on busy days) you should get a place. Their website has traditional fill-up times so you can plan. For exploring west glacier this is a great op... more
