Big Creek Campground is a 20 minute drive from Apgar Visitor Center and the last 3 miles are on a dirt/gravel road which can be messy after a rain. We were using solar for the majority of the time and needed to use our generator the last day to bring the batteries back up. Site 15 would be the one to choose if you have solar; wide open space with plenty of clear sky. Flat River had a great flow rate, so we had plenty of burbling water sounds for a relaxing afternoon by the water.

Big Creek Campground costs $16 per night, we have the senior pass that brought the price down to $11 per night, this includes their registration fees.

This is a concession managed USFS campground on the Upper Flathead River. Just the other side of the river is Glacier NP. The spaces are wide and dispersed enough hat you feel uncrowded. Bathrooms are vault toilets and could stand to be cleaned more often by the hosts.

The real reason to stay is the proximity to Glacier NP. If you go north along N Fork Road, you can access Glacier through a little used route. If towing, be aware- coming up from Columbia Falls is 7.5 miles of washboard....

If you flyfish, you'll be in heaven. Cutts and I managed a nice Bull Trout. All we're caught and released.
