    Tent Glacier Campground, West Glacier

    This is a fairly large, yet quiet, private run campground that is heavily wooded, cut into the side of a hill/mountain and near the west entrance to Glacier NP.

    My buddy Brad and I stayed here a couple of nights and enjoyed our stay here.
    Because we had 2 tents, we were assigned one of their 'large' tenting sites, that was just big enough to cram our 2 tents on.
    We had electric on-site, water across the road, showers, fire grate picnic table, 2 parking pads and there was free WiFi by the office. Firewood is available for a fee and there is a little cafe there as well and although we didn't try any of their fare, it looked good.
    The campground is a bit of a jaunt up from the highway, so traffic noise was very minimal! IIRC, there was the odd train through the night though.
    Although the camp office does carry a few items, it's best to get any needed supplies/gas in either West Glacier, or Columbia Falls

    Cost was $28 /night for our site at time of visit

    That almost looks like the same spot I stayed in back in 2014. Nice campground.

    Beenshot and I stayed there two years ago when we were out west. They gave a us two sites for the Aspens with a military discount because I was retired. It was $30 a night with my discount. No sharing sites with the campers. Nice campground with decent facilities.

    Looks like a nice campground. I have to admit I've avoided camping in the Glacier area because of a fear of grizzly bears. Any thoughts or comments on that would be appreciated.
