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.

We stayed two nights here in our van while visiting Glacier National Park. Its was very nice and quiet and the camping spot was so cute and immaculate. Wade and Shannon were great hosts, I would definitely recommend and will come back again.

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.

The site was very nice on a beautiful property. The location is very convenient to the West Glacier gate which was great since we had to go in before 6 am.

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

Loved our stay here. Incredible hosts; really enjoyed getting to know them. Perfect location to glacier national park; as close as you can get without actually being in the park. If available, I will definitely stay here in the future.

We are torn to write this review. This is a true gem and we selfishly want to keep it all to ourselves!

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary in the GNP area and we couldn’t have been more lucky to have found this listing. Location to the park is amazing and the site is perfect. We had full hookups and while the power is 20 AMP it worked just fine for our needs. Wade and Shannon have genuinely thought of it all - they’ve even provided a picnic table, lovely outdoor lights to enjoy the evenings, and their welcome letter has so many recommendations and tips - we didn’t get a chance to try all of them but the ones we did were fabulous (just means we have to come back to try the rest). We would be remiss not to mention their pup Gus, he is the sweetest thing and constantly made us smile!!

We also want to note that we both work remotely and we had to work a couple of days during our stay. The WiFi they provided was great - we were both able to run our meetings without any issues.

And we’ve saved the best for last - Wade and Shannon made our stay absolutely stellar! We can’t thank them enough for their hospitality!! They treated us like family. Our only regret was not booking a longer stay. We came fully expecting to enjoy the park, and left with making wonderful friends ☺️

Thank you for everything Wade and Shannon! We will miss you guys! Till next time!!

Nice place to stay only a few miles from west Glacier entrance and friendly folks and Gus the dog. Couldn't have asked for a better location. Why camp in a crowded park when you can enjoy peace and quiet and privacy.
