St Mary Campground

Glacier National Park St Mary Campground

St. Mary campground is the largest campground on the east side of Glacier National Park, and is conveniently located approximately one half mile from the St. Mary visitor center. Activities such as interpretive programs, book sales, shuttle service, and Red Bus tours are located at the visitor center.

The campground is made up of three loops.
A loop is the lower of the three,  Aspen trees shade the campsites on this loop with soothing sounds of  St Mary Creek to relax to.

Camping at St Mary in Glacier National Park.
St. Mary is one of two campgrounds in the park that take reservations. You may sign up through the National Reservation System at http://www.recreation.gov/. Sites may be reserved between June 1 through September 3. Sites not reserved ahead of time are available on a first come first serve basis.

 Primitive camping is available April 1 through May 22 and again September 22 through October 30 for $10.00 per night. Winter camping begins November 1 and runs through March. There is no fee for winter camping but a valid park entrance pass is required.

Glacier National Park is located in the northwest corner of Montana, just north of Columbia Falls. The park encompasses more than one million acres and is home to grizzly bear, moose, elk, along with 63 varieties of wild mammals. While most of the roads in Glacier National Park are closed off during the winter, this provides miles and miles of tracks for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Visitors are seldom around in the dead of winter, so the muffled hush of the snow covered woods is especially enticing and serene.

A ski or snowshoe trip along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which is one of the most scenic roads in North America, is a great option, according to park rangers. The road is closed to cars from September or October until snowmelt, usually in June. Several short hiking trails branch off from the road, which would be excellent for snowshoeing or skiing in the winter season.

 Once you have your gear, head up to Glacier National Park for an exciting adventure. Guided snowshoe trips are available, led by a park naturalist, and are highly recommended. If you are looking for an informative tour, snowshoeing is an easy way to explore the winter wonderland of this unique park. Snowshoeing will provide even the novice an effortless activity so your senses are more in tune with your environment and your guide's knowledge on the history, wildlife, geology, and biology of this precious ecosystem.
