St. Mary / East Glacier KOA Holiday
Plan your Glacier vacation with St. Mary KOA as your basecamp!
Stay here, and you're just a mile from Glacier Park and the entrance to Going-to-the-Sun Road, the 52-mile highway that climbs across Glacier National Park's spectacular alpine spine. The view is almost as good from your campsite here at Glacier's eastern edge, where towering peaks frame the St. Mary River and Lake. Pick up lunch fixings at the KOA grocery store and gift shop, then board a Glacier tour bus at the campground entrance. If you want to give your dog a day off while you explore, your hosts offer pet sitting and kennel boarding. Or relax at the KOA with full espresso bar while you hone your putting skills, play bocce or enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub complex. Rent a kayak and explore the wilds of Lower St. Mary Lake and River. Pizza and food service items available daily from mid-June to September. Pool/Hot tub: June 15 - September 10. Max pull thru: 75 feet. Your hosts: Will & Susan Brooke.
Absolutely loved staying here during our time in Glacier! We stayed in one of the small cabins with no bathroom and it was perfect for my boyfriend and I. We went during the last 3 days they were open so it was quiet and peaceful. Only complaint would be there is no where for food during this time because the park and KOA is about to close! Otherwise it was amazing.
This KOA was a nice home base for our stay at Glacier. I’ll admit there are other KOA campgrounds with nicer grass and more trees, but it is located close to the east entrance to the Going to the Sun road and also the Canadian border. The staff was very kind and accommodating. They also have a nice store and hard ice cream. We also were able to leave our fifth-wheel trailers in storage at this location to travel into Canada. Get your reservations well in advance if traveling in a group.
Beautiful views of Glacier, very close to the St.Mary’s entrance. Friendly staff. Clean facilities. Laundry room had many washers and dryers and was clean and comfortable (couch, etc. while you wait). Camp store was well stocked with souvenirs, gifts, camp gear as well as tools, camper stuff, and food/drinks. We will definitely stay here again over other campgrounds in the Glacier region.
This is an excellent KOA campground. The store is well stocked with stuff you may have forgotten to pack or ran out of. The bathrooms and showers are well maintained and clean. Wood bundles are generous and bone dry. The staff is friendly and super helpful. We boarded our dog for a couple of days while we visited GNP, and they took great care of him. The trail by the river is nice and shaded. Views from just about every campsite are spectacular.
St. Mary/ East Glacier KOA was a great spot to camp right outside Glacier National Park. It was less than 5 minutes to drive from KOA to the park entrance. East Glacier is busy but nothing like the west entrance. So enjoy some of the isolation on the east. It is stunning and, in my opinion, has better hikes. The campground though had nice showers and clean bathrooms and the staff up front and on the phone are very helpful. Great gift shop too with all the stuff you forgot to pack. I would definitely stay here again and will be recommending it to anyone coming to Glacier.
