Going next June to Glacier National park Please advise of all the campgrounds outside the park with full hookups which one would you recommend.We like to have at least some space between sites and if possible with trees or bushes to give us some kind of privacy . We travel with an autistic grandson so keep that in mind. Thank you

Tap the RV Parks button at the top of this page and it will tell you all you need. If you want to pay the big bucks give the KOA a try. We stayed at the Rocky Mountain Hi park and it was nice without busting the budget.

The KOA near the west entrance is one of the nicest we have ever been in.

The KOA on the west is nice and there are several other parks on the west side that offer FHU with some privacy. However, I believe the east side has the better hiking trails and views. The KOA on the east side is sparse in cover/vegetation though. One thing to also keep in mind, Going to the Sun Road has not opened until late June the last two years due to plowing. So no matter what side of the park you stay on, you may end of having to drive all the way around the south end to get to the other side if Going to the Sun Road is closed.

June may be a little early. Going to the Sun Road didn't open till July this year.

I drove west to east on Going To The Sun Road on June 28 it had opened the week before. Check here

I've also been over it on Fathers Day week-end. Here's a site which lists opening and closing dates since 1933

Mod's Note:

"Wrong" is not an acceptable response and borders on fighting words. I won't tolerate it as a response, whether the other person is mistaken or not. English is a rich language that offers abundant ways to disagree without being disagreeable.

The west side is more commercialized, so that will be your better bet for a FHU site. The KOA is nice, but expensive. Decent amount of spacing but from what I remember driving thru, not a lot of trees. If your grandson is verbal, somewhat social and can tolerate others, then it would probably be best.

It took two short trips with my step-son who has Asperger's to decide that camping wasn't his thing. After about 3 hours, his attitude would kick in and ruin it for the rest of us. Worked out for all that he doesn't go anymore.
