Answers to some of your most frequently asked questions.

*If you don't want to read everything on this page, just use the "Find" feature on your browser and type in a keyword (i.e., "bears") to go directly to that subject.

First things first....we are in the Mountains. There is no cable up here. You might get your satellite to pick up a signal, you might not....there are big trees here. Trees and Mountains don't equal good satellite reception. So if you must have satellite, there is a nice rv park in Columbia Falls with very few trees...and cable.

Can I have a campfire?
You betcha!! This is a good question to ask when making reservations at campgrounds in the area. ALL of our sites have BBQ grills/campfire pits AND picnic tables. We have beautifully bundled, dry firewood for sale at the office for $4.00. Also, dry kindling for $2.50 a bundle. The Hungry Horse Ranger District posts the current fire danger--if the danger has reached the "High" or "Extreme" level, campfires will be restricted.

Can your park handle my coach (big rig) and tow vehicle?
Sure can...on a nice, long pull-through site with room for your slide-outs and awnings. We can accomodate rigs to 45' towing a car or truck. (This is another good question to ask when making campground reservations.)

Can we bring the dog(s) or cat(s) to your campground?
Sure, but you must keep the pet on a leash, (cats too!)...county regulations say so. What about taking my dog on the trails in Glacier National Park?
Pets are allowed in the park, but special regulations apply. Pets are not allowed on any park trails. Pets are only allowed in drive-in campgrounds, along park roads open to motor vehicles, and in picnic areas. Pets must be on a leash no longer than six feet and under physical restraint or caged. They may not be left unattended for any length of time. Kennels are available in several towns surrounding the park.

Do I need to be afraid of the bears?
Hmmm...That's a tough one. Generally, no. We have never had anyone attacked and eaten by a bear here at the campground. Really. We HAVE had black bears in camp but that was mostly because some untidy campers left food out at their site. Bears will get into your cooler, pet food, tent or anywhere else they can find food. All food/pet food must be stored in your hard-sided vehicle after eating. If food is left out at your site while you are away, we will have to confiscate it. And...if we are hungry, WE might just eat it! No, we'll give it back, I promise. Please keep your camp site clean!! We have seen bears here, but they have never bothered anyone sleeping in a tent or doing anything else, and I'd like to keep it that way. Everyone wants to see the bears, but it is best to view them from a distance...say Glacier National Park! Visit Glacier's * BEAR PAGE* to learn all about black bears and grizzly bears!

Scattered throughout the campground are bear-proof trash containers. When you check in, your map will show the location of the trash can nearest to your site.

Do you have hot showers and do they cost extra?
Yes, we have wonderful, clean, and private hot showers. There is no extra charge as you will find at some other campgrounds.

When should I reserve my site?
Reservations can be made all year long. It is best to reserve early (January, February, March) if you plan to arrive during the peak season (mid-June through mid-August).

Can I invite the in-laws to stay at my site?
If the in-laws and their kids, (or other family members, or friends) are riding in the same vehicle with you, the only charge would be for more than 2 people. (Grandma and Grandpa in your RV would be extra). If the in-laws are in their own vehicle, they will have to rent their own site. This is standard practice throughout the private campground industry. State and National parks have different policies. Reserve early and we can make sure your sites are in close proximity.

Can I stay longer than my reservation?
Space is reserved on a first come, first serve basis. If you have reserved your site for 5 days and decide at the last minute that you want to stay an extra couple of days, we will do our best to accomodate you. During peak season, (June 22nd through mid-August) it is sometimes difficult to accomodate every request, especially for full hook-up sites. It's not that we don't want you to stay, but others have made reservations and we may already have rented the site for the day you are leaving. I promise we will do our best to take care of everyone as we hate to disappoint. But please understand and reserve early, if possible.

What is your reservation/cancellation policy?
A deposit in the amount of the first night's rent is due at the time the reservation is made. Cancellations or changes to your reservation must be received at least 10 days prior to check-in to receive your deposit refund minus a $30.00 processing fee for RV This will confirm your reservation for a full hookup site arriving Thank you ~ we look forward to your visit!

When is your busiest time, or least busiest?
Our busiest weeks are the last week of June through the middle of August. September is a wonderful time to visit as the weather is usually mild and the crowds after Labor Day, have gone home!

What will the weather be like when I get there?* HERE.* In general, the nights are usually cool after the sun sets behind the mountains. Perfect weather for a campfire and marshmallow roast! Be sure to bring a warm jacket as Logan Pass in Glacier National Park can have snow any day of the year!

What's the altitude at your campground?
Our altitude is 3,200'. Logan Pass in Glacier is just under 7,000'.

Can I drive my big rig over the Going to the Sun Highway in Glacier?
Nope. Vehicles longer than 21' by 8' wide (including mirrors) are not allowed over Logan Pass on the 24-mile stretch of road between Avalanche Creek on the West side of the Continental Divide, and the Sun Point area on the East side of the Divide.

How are the mosquitos/bugs/snakes/creepy crawlers/poison ivy at your campground?
We generally don't have much of a problem with mosquitos or other bugs. There is NO poison ivy or oak. The only snakes are those little harmless garter snakes we used to pick up when we were kids. On occassion, there are some strange looking black snail/slug things, but these are also harmless. Kids love 'em!

Do I need a Montana fishing license to fish in your pond?'s a private pond so no license is necessary.
