    Fish Creek Campground at Glacier National Park, Montana

    Fish Creek Campground is the second largest campground in Glacier National Park, and they do take reservations.

    The campground is located on the western side of the park at an elevation of nearly 3,500 feet; this area of the park generally receives the most rainfall. And we had rain about 90% of our stay.

    Fish Creek is heavily forested with plenty of shade. Several sites have views of Lake McDonald.

    The campground is large with 178 campsites. The sites are relatively spread apart and provide privacy for both RV and tent campers. Potable water is accessible in the campground, and restroom facilities have flush toilets and sinks with running water.

    Grizzly and black bears frequent the area; food storage regulations strictly enforced; when not in immediate use, all food, beverages, coolers, cooking utensils, pet food, or other attractants must be kept in a closed, hard-sided vehicle or secured in bear proof storage lockers near campground restrooms.

    Park entrance fee is separate from camping fee; $25 per vehicle, $12 for hiker or cyclist; valid for seven days. They do honor the Senior Pass. I paid $11.00 per night

    There is no group camping in Fish Creek. Parties of nine or more may make reservations for the Apgar Campground Group Sites or at the St. Mary Campground.
    Campground length of stay is limited to 14 days.

    Generator hours for Fish Creek Campground: 8 a.m.-10 a.m., 12 p.m.-2 p.m., 5 p.m.-7 p.m. We were never there during generator hours so I don't know if there was any problems there. There are no generators allowed in Loop C, However I found that Loop C is on a steep hillside and the sites are not at all level. Access by motorcycle is not great. The uphill trek to the restroom would not be fun.
    We stayed the first night in Loop A. The campground was level and the sites were fairly secluded providing some privacy. Loop A is the only Loop that has Showers. I actually got a Hot Shower! The second night we stayed in Loop D. It was on a hillside, so our site was not level, and there were no showers.

    Fish Creek is located four miles northwest of the west park entrance near West Glacier, Montana. Access is from U.S. Highway 2, approximately 32 miles northeast of Kalispell, Montana.
