We departed Flathead Lake and drove north through Flathead County to the western edge of Glacier National Park passing by beautiful ranches and small towns with cute little shops.
The West Glacier KOA sits about 3 miles from the western entrance of Glacier National Park and is a perfect location to enjoy both the park, the local amenities, and the beautiful scenery around and within the RV park.
RV Park: West Glacier KOA
Location: West Glacier, Montana (about 3 miles south of town)
Site: 5 (pull thru)
Cost: $171.09 (ouch)
Comments: A beautiful RV park with outstanding scenery, full amenities, and cough, cough…a bit expensive!!
There is almost a mile long drive into the entrance of KOA from Highway 2 and upon entering we checked it at the office/general store area before proceeding to our site.
Across from the office is the Lazy Bear Cafe which provides meals and also different food trucks/vendors offering a variety of different foods. We enjoyed a hog roast one evening that was terrific.
Right next to the cafe is the Bearstream Bar which offers plenty of outdoor seating, including couches with umbrellas, chairs, and an Airstream bar which offers adult beverages. There is a small area for a stage and musical performances which we enjoyed every evening.
AND if that wasn’t enough there was Scoops, the ice cream shop next to the office!
The park offers two swimming pools, one for adults only, and the other pool is for families. Both are surrounded by beautiful flowers (as is all the park) and have great views of the mountains.
There is also a children’s playground area and on some evenings there is a small petting zoo.
The park has walkways between the amenities, sites, and cabins along with walking trails. AND there are fountains and flowers everywhere bringing the feel of summer to the area. Petunias are everywhere.
The laundry room provides enough washers and dryers to keep the campers happy. As with everything else in life the price seemed quite steep but the clothes got clean.
The RV sites offered both pull thru and back-in sites, some with patios and BBQs, some with grass, and some with vegetation separating the sites providing some additional privacy.
Some sites rivaled national/state park campgrounds for size and separation and of course, the park offered tent sites.
The park has a variety of different sized cabins ranging from basic amenities to deluxe size and offerings. The cabins and lodges are scattered throughout the park and some offer nice privacy.
The park offers pretty much everything you need along with the beauty of the surrounding mountains. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would certainly return (if we could afford it)! And with the close proximity to Glacier National Park we would have to say this location is perfect. More on Glacier National Park in the next post!
