Many Glacier Campground at Glacier National Park, Montana

Many Glacier Campground is our favorite in Glacier National Park, and since it is also first come-first served, and very popular, you have to get there about 9-10am to get a site. There are very few sites that accommodate big rigs (>25’), but there are a few. There is a decent gift shop with a few groceries, but most importantly, they have self-serve soft ice cream! Huckleberry and vanilla!!! You can swirl them too. There is laundry at the Swiftcurrent lodge, but our clothes never really got dry…….There is great wildlife viewing in the campground (saw a grizzly mom and her two cubs from our site, but not too close), and every night at the Swiftcurrent Lodge parking lot, volunteer interpreters set-up telescopes and search for wildlife. Be sure to bring your own binoculars, though, since there are so many people.

Many Glacier has no hook-up sites and is $20/night. You can get shower tokens at Swiftcurrent Lodge, and their showers are pretty good – about 2 tokens per shower is about right.
