Cool down amongst shady hemlocks, or warm up around the fire at Avalanche Campground. This sweet little spot has plenty of shady first-come, first-serve spots for RVs and tents, so even a last minute trip means you can still live inside the magic of Glacier! Water, restrooms, and evening ranger programs mean you’ll have all the creature comforts close by so you can spend more time exploring. In fact, the Trail of the Cedars and Avalanche Lake are a stones throw from your campsite, so prepare yourself for a day of exploring waterfalls, stunning gorges, flora like you can’t believe, and nights under cool and starry skies at Avalanche.

I really loved this campground, however, it is a popular campsite. In the busy season it is worth going early to get a spot for the night. I camped here in 2016 and if I remember correctly, there are no reservations.

My first solo camping trip! It was amazing
