The camping in the Flathead National Forest is some of the best in the country, and it’s easy to see why when you decide to pitch your tent in a place like Red Meadow. The road to reach this slice of primitive paradise isn’t well-suited for an RV or trailer, making the choice to get back to the basics of camp life an easy one. The sites are lined up along the shores of the lake, and we’re confident that this is one view you won’t get tired of. If you’ve been craving some serenity, what are you waiting for? Come check this place out (just remember to bring water, or a treatment method… there’s no potable water out here).

One of the best spots near Glacier if you're looking to lose the crowds. This place has a particularly nice look in early spring, as snow still covers the ground but the greens in the trees start to show. I'm sure I will be returning whenever I'm near Glacier next.

Red Meadow Lake Campground was a pleasant surprise we stumbled upon while exploring some backcountry roads. There are a few sites along the lakeshore and a few further back. We chose a site further back in the trees for privacy. You would think with the lake being somewhat off the grid that you'd have the place to yourself, but we met a few bikers, hunters and fishermen who made their camp there as well. It is a beautiful spot to chill out and could thoroughly be enjoyed with a canoe or raft as the water is crystal clear!
