“Great spot, but the name is a bit misleading.”

Reviewed Jan 26, 2018

Overall Rating

Most of the sites are paved and nestled in among the trees. Campground hosts were very helpful. It's a bit of a walk to the Lodge, but doable. Only the sites on the west side of the campground have good views of the mountains and "glaciers". The campgrounds right along the lake were much better, but of course harder to reserve.

“A spectacular lake in the Sawtooth Mountains”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2017

Overall Rating

I would've preferred dispersed camping, especially as Glacier View has no hookups, but there is no dispersed camping permissible anywhere near this must-see lake with a jaw-dropping Sawtooth Mountains backdrop.

Space between sites is adequate, and despite the forested setting we were able to lock onto Dish Network satellites in this site via a long, long coax cable. The noise level was quiet and sites immaculate. The lake is just a couple of hundred yards away, and hats off to the Forest Service for designating an off-leash dog beach right near the campground. That made campground rules about leashes a bit easier for this boondocking devotee to swallow.

There's a two-slot dump station at the entrance to the lake that services the multiple campgrounds here. Drinking water is available, and a coin-op laundry and coin-op showers are situated next to the dump station. The dump station is marked for a $5 drop fee, and it's not clear if that fee is included for registered campers.
