“This is a sweet spot right off Portage Glacier Road.”

Overall Rating

This is a sweet spot right off Portage Glacier Road. However there was a notice posted that said something along the lines of “Leave No Trace in order to keep this area available for public use.” I’m guessing people leave their trash lying about so who knows how long the National Forest will allow people to camp here. There are a few other options for pull-outs and there’s a couple of paid National Forest campgrounds on route as well.
