St. Mary Campground | Glacier National Park, Montana

Campground or RV Park
In the middle of St. Mary Lake sits Wild Goose Island, approximately 8 miles from St. Mary Campground. – Sheena Pate

St. Mary Campground is the largest campground on the east side of Glacier National Park and is easily accessed from the town of St. Mary or the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Ideally located between Many Glacier and Two Medicine sections of Glacier National Park you will find plenty of hiking and scenic drive options. It is one of the few campgrounds within the Park that takes reservations. Located approximately one half mile west of the park boundary, near the town of St. Mary, there is easy access to fuel, restaurants, and grocery store. Activities such as interpretive programs, book sales, and shuttle service tours are located at the nearby St. Mary Visitor Center.

Camping spots are sparsely shaded, but expect breezes in the spring and summer to keep you cool. Some sections are shaded by aspen. What it lacks in shade it makes up for in views of picturesque mountains, especially at sunset.
