We changed our minds the night before arriving about what part of the park to explore so we joined the mad dash before 8 am to find a FCFS campsite! It was stressful as people exited the entrance station and made a mad scramble. We were shut out of our first choice (Sprague Creek) and got one of the last available sites here. But the upside is that we made fast friends with the people who were leaving the site we ended up occupying! The sites in Loop B have pull-through driveways and most are very spacious. Ours could easily fit our van and screen tent with lots of room left over. Lots of trees but not necessarily between sites. We were just so grateful to find a site that it didn’t even bother us (much) that the dumpster was right at our site and we would hear the occasional crash of the lid. The bathroom in the B loop was clean enough but no soap and NO lights (you needed to bring a flashlight even during the day). Favorable features of this campground are easy access to a shuttle stop and the Avalanche Lake trailhead.

“Great Basecamp for Exploring Glacier National Park! ”

Avalanche Campground is our favorite Glacier National Park west side campground in the main area of the park. Avalanche is large with 87 sites but still fills up early. No reservations make for a little scramble and site stalking in the mornings - we arrived on a Friday morning in July at 8:30 am and found a site, #A16, but it filled up within the hour! Our site was a nice pull through site which gave us room to drop the camper and drive around the park. This location in the park is a great basecamp for a drive over the Going to the Sun Road and the trailhead to Avalanche Lake is right at the campground and is a lovely hike. Flush Toilets, Running Water, Fire Rings, and Picnic Tables.
