Excellent location to set up your base camp near Glacier National Park. We are located only 3.2 miles to the West Entrance of Glacier National Park (most of which can be taken on the back road avoiding all the traffic on HWY 2. A huge time-saving plus!).

Excellent location to set up your base camp near Glacier National Park. We are located only 3.2 miles to the West Entrance of Glacier National Park (most of which can be taken on the back road avoiding all the traffic on HWY 2. A huge time-saving plus!).

We are also only 1 mile to Lake Five for great fishing or kayaking during sunset. We are a short drive to Hungry Horse Dam, Whitefish Lake, Big Mountain, Flathead Lake, and so much more. After a long day of play, come enjoy a quiet evening on our property in your own RV. We have water, sewer, and a 20amp/110 electric hookup. We have provided a picnic table at the site for you to enjoy your meals, happy hour, or family game night outdoors. We have a campfire pit on our property that we enjoy on cool evenings that you can enjoy as well (as long as there are no fire restrictions in the area due to moderate/high fire danger). 

Trains can be heard throughout the day on the property. Enjoy the haunting whistle blow as it echos off the mountains, it is a sound I truly enjoy. There is a lot of history to the railroad that served GNP. If interested you can read about the history of the Great Nothern Railway here: gnrhs.org 

We welcome children and pets too so they can be included in all the fun that the area has to offer.

Wade and Shannon are your hosts and we live on the property. We are readily available to share our favorite local spots.  

*As an FYI: We are remodeling our main house. All work is done during the day, so there are no worries that our work will interfere with your peaceful evenings stargazing or having sweet dreams.

Wade and Shannon have a gem of a place that is minutes from the west entrance to Glacier. East to find, and very communicative hosts. If we’re ever back in the area we would definitely stay again!

Perfect. Every aspect was perfect. If you're going to Glacier and using hipcamp book this place! There is zero chance you would have any regrets.

Wade and Shannon thought of everything and created what likely is the best HipCamp anywhere.

It's clean, it's quiet, it's convenient to GNP.

Couple all of this with kindness of the hosts and its a no Brainerd.

Seriously, if at the end of your stay here you can't write a glowing review, you may need to see a professional.

I could write a small novel on our great experience, but I think you get the point. Now, stop reading reviews and book it!!

Wade and Shannon were great hosts. The spot is fully equipped and even has outdoor party lights. The site is spacious and has great access to the west side entrance for Glacier NP with insider tips and tricks from our hosts like renting bear spray instead of buying it!

Definitely recommend staying here!

Wade and Shannon are a gold star ⭐️ host in our opinion. The cute spot they have carved out for guests includes full hook ups and a beautifully manicured property within 5 minutes of the west gate of GNP. All of their recommendations were spot on. Make sure you go to Polebridge and get the Huckleberry Bear Claws. We had an opportunity to share a fire pit with them and their family and get to know them. Good people! We will definitely be back if we are ever in the area. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality.

Keith, Thank you for staying with us. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels and got in some good bike rides. How was the riding in the Polebridge area? Hope you got some clear skies and were able to enjoy the lakes. Take Care, Shannon and Wade
