    You can definately camp there, and although making reservations is not required, they strongly encourage you to. Unless you make a reservation, camping is on a first-come first-served basis. Below is a link to a website that will provide you with a ton of information on each of the ten campgrounds in the park, phone numbers to make reservations, when they are open and closed for the season, and much more. Happy camping! http://bit.ly/9QCxp3

    My friends are going to Glacier National Park this summer and I have been helping them plan their trip. There are several RV camp grounds in and around Glacier; Stanton Creek Lodge, St. Mary's KOA, San Suz Trailer and RV Park, and Glacier Meadow RV Park. The thing to consider is which route to drive your RV on when going through glacier. Make sure roads are open and passable to RV's.

    The Going to the Sun road is just what everyone does. To really see the park you need to plan before you come. The Glacier Park website is a great resource and has virtual hikes that you can look at to see different areas. Plus, the park is open year round so don't wait for the GTS road to open to come or put your trip off if it has closed. If you want to stay in a park hotel (my favorite is Lake McDonald Lodge) you will need to reserve over a year in advance. But there are good hotels nearby and many houses for rent. My favorite part of the park that hardly anyone sees is the North Fork area. The nearest town to that area is Polebridge that has a killer bakery and great sandwiches at the Mercantile. That is a good dropping in point for Kintla, Bowman, and the other NF lakes. There are also homesteads inside the park, many that you can rent on vrbo.com. There is one really lovely on inside the North Fork area. Also Two Medicine does not get as many visitors and it is really special - but there is only a campground and camp store there. Warning is that the wind on the East side of the park can be a real challenge, especially at Two Med and Waterton.
