    WE stayed on the East side of Glacier last year for about 10 days, we stayed at Johnson's RV park,sort of small but great views and close to park . There is also a KOA there but can't recall the name....we had to wait several days for the Road to the Sun to open, snowed in... We liked the east side better, great hiking and scenery is better IMO anyways. West side is more commercial and crowded but still worth it. We stayed at American RV park on the west side( I think that was the name anyways) it was a few miles from park entrance)
    WE brought kayaks and paddled the lakes in the area, great scenery..We also did some white water rafting on the Flathead....that was REAL fun..
    If you go i strongly suggest the ranger led hikes, very informative...get some bear spray too.

    We have been at Dick's RV Park in Great Falls for the last 4 days--sitting out a snowy/rainy/cold spell before heading for Glacier. If GFalls is on your route, I recommend it for an overnight or a longer stay. Very clean, lots of pet grass areas. About $33/night after GSam discount.

It was a very nice place plus a nice surprise was a free dinosour museum there beside the campground. In the main lobby a life size, fleshed-out model of Peck's Rex, the Tyrannosaurus Rex and other dinosaur fossils are also on exhibit from their dig to make the dam.

    +1 for Billings KOA. Very nice and very clean. Be aware, however, that they don't recycle.

    Sounds like a trip I'd love to make.
    On our Alaska trip, heading west, we took Hwy 2 all the way from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the west entrance of Glacier in Montana. On the return trip we came down from Alberta into Washington and took Hwy 2 east. I love the drive on Hwy 2. Mainly four lane, some two lane. Not interstate. You still get to go through small towns. Plenty of campgrounds along the way. As our normal method of traveling, no reservations. We never had a problem geting a campsite.

    the Billings KOA is the original one and is one of the best we have ever visited .... easy off/on the interstate .... if we are ever back in that area, we wouldn't hesitate to camp there again

    Any personal recomendations?

    Also what about the roads coming back south and east any to avoid?

    We stayed at Yellowstone River RV Park, Billings, MT years ago.

    Typical commercial RV Park. Very clean. Sites close together.

    I would stay there again.
