This is campground is an all around winner. After bumping down the Outside Northfork Road out of the west end of Glacier National Park you cross over the Flathead River at a tiny town called Polebridge, MT. Be sure to stop at the Polebridge Mercantile and enjoy some of the best pastries you have ever had (seriously this no hyperbole, look it up!). After you get you fill cross over the replacement of the original polebridge that the town was named for and check in a the small ranger station at this entrance of the park. Head down the road a few more miles to get to the campground. Check in with the host and make sure to heed all warning as this is Grizzly country and those bears mean business. The view of the lake alone is worth the drive.

This is Grizzly Bear country. Get educated of the does and don'ts.
