The camp site was just as advertised but so much cuter than I ever expected. So nice to have a shower and restrooms available. Also, very convenient to the west entrance to the park!

Truly a little sanctuary in the woods at the foot of Glacier NP! The space was put together with so much care and an excellent eye for (ex)terior decorating, with lights strung through the woods, nice bathroom, just the coziest feel to it. Lexie and Dennis are lovely hosts and truly accommodating to a tenter’s needs! Can’t wait to go back!

We were visiting Glacier National Park and stayed at Lexie’s campground over labors day weekend. Glacier National Park was 10 mins away. It was our first time camping and Lexie was very open to help in any sort! The accommodations were great as well! There is a nice outdoor shower and a clean bathroom as well! There are fairy lights throughout the campground which makes the experience even better! Also the area is safe and private! besides our stay Lexie was very generous to allow us to use her shower and bathroom the next day at night and we were so thankful for her!! Overall the experience was absolutely amazing will definitely come back to camp here!!

Amazing property!! My boyfriend and I stayed there on the tent pad for 3 nights during our trip to Glacier National Park. Lexie was so, so sweet when we met her upon arrival. The property has great amenities: single-burner Coleman stove, firewood, fire pits, an outdoor bathroom with an actual flushing toilet, propane-heated hot shower, and running water sink! Made doing dishes after cooking meals extremely helpful. It's also a short walk to Stonefly Lounge, which was fun to get a nightcap at. Highly recommend!

Charming campsite close to the Glacier west entrance. We stayed on the tentpad which was large enough for our 3-person tent (might have trouble fitting with anything much larger). It was relatively private, set back in the woods from the shower/glamping/yurt, and very flat and comfortable. There were lots of birds singing in the morning. There was a 2-person chair swing and some camping chairs around a fire pit (which we unfortunately were not able to use due to the extreme drought in the area). The shower was hot, easy to use and surprisingly effective. Toilet worked fine. We didn't hang out at the site much but there were some chairs and tables set up around if you just wanted to chill out. You're not that far away from the main road to Glacier but the noise didn't bother us outside of the occasional late night train. In addition to being close to the Glacier entrance you are less than 10 minutes away from Columbia Falls, which has some nice dining options. There were only 2 parking spots, so if for some reason someone else brings multiple cars you may need to work something out.

We only got to meet Lexie and Dennis briefly as we were out and about most of our days, but they were very kind and accommodating. They also had an adorable pittie and goats to greet us! Overall cannot recommend this site enough if you're looking for something close to Glacier for a reasonable price.

CLOSE (less than 10 minutes!) to Glacier BUT you’ll want to stay at camp!! It was hard to want to leave this amazing place each morning! The camp is beautiful, inspiring and feels so private and magical despite being so close to town and the park. Everything to make a stay comfortable has been thought out here. We arrived at dusk and the short path up to our tent pad was very clearly marked and even lined with solar lights between the trees for easier guidance. Helpful and SO beautiful! The site features a large raised tent pad lined with woodchip padding (so comfortable!) a personal fire pit, camp chairs and an amazing hammock swing in the trees! Great privacy with plenty of room for hammocks! The outdoor shower alone is worth coming for. It is private, warm and unique. The bathroom is clean, charming and roomy with a flushable toilet and a locking door in case you are sharing with any other campers. It is stocked with the essentials (And extras!) and there’s even a vanity beside the bathroom/shower! The washing area is a perfect multifunctional area for brushing teeth or doing dishes. There is also a beautiful common area with a nice table and chairs, small burner and room to cook meals. Lexie and Dennis are knowledgeable, attentive, generous and helpful hosts! They have the most adorable, friendly animals that you’re able to visit! The goats are smart and hilarious, their dog is a ball of love and Ginger, the old kitten, is the sweetest thing you’ll ever meet. The hardest part of this visit was leaving! We’re so thankful to have been able to stay at this amazing place and have it be among our best memories of visiting such a beautiful park!

The  magical path leading up to the bathroom/shower and just beyond that is the tent padShower/bathroom building. Private, locking bathroom door and a shower you won’t want to get out of Adorable vanity beside bathroom/shower buildingMulti functional sink area. Had soap and towels even and a drying rack for dishes.

Thank you Kimberly, you and your kids were an absolute pleasure to have. It’s so good to see that you all get together and explore. You have a beautiful family and we hope you come back to stay with us again, tell the kids that Gracie and Henry miss their daily visits with them. And ginger too. We will let you know about the winter hip camp and igloo so you can come experience the winter time in Montana with us. Thank you for the sweet and detailed review we are so glad you enjoyed your stay here and we appreciate your feedback!

What a cute, fun place to use a base camp for exploring Glacier National Park! They thought of everything - from camping chairs at the site and solar powered fairy lights along the very short trail, to bug spray and lotion in the bathroom with a flushing toilet, sink, and awesome hot outdoor shower to make this a comfortable and homey spot to stay. There is a short uphill walk to the tent pad, but it’s clearly marked and easy to use. I would recommend earplugs - the train can get quite loud at night. Totally worth it to be so comfortable, in an adorable setting with tons of great touches less than 10 min from the west entrance of the park.
