For those of you who are looking to visit Glacier National Park, there are a plethora of campgrounds, RV Parks, and hotels to choose from, however, don’t be overwhelmed. We highly recommend the Fish Creek Campground for your accommodations (click here to make reservations).
The campground was “clean and very serene.” One little inside tip is that there are hot showers in loop A which not many people know about so for all you “glampers” who can’t go too long without a hot shower, you might want to reserve a spot in loop A.
The Fish Creek Campground is located on west shore of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park and has easy access to a nice trail along the west side of the lake. The water is clean and the campsites are spacious. If you are tent camping, there are some really nice tent only sites in loop D that are situated right next to the creek (dream site is D166).
Fishing in the Park
One thing to keep in mind when in Glacier National Park is that you do not need a fishing license to fish. You park entry acts as your fishing license, however, be sure to grab a fishing regulations manual from the ranger at the campground check-in. Another thing to remember is that you are in bear country and to follow the instructions in the campground regarding grizzly bears because it could save your life and avoid unnecessary contact with the bears. Bethany and I each carry bear spray with us everywhere we go when we are in the park just to be on the safe side.

Following the Fish Creek Campground Rules
Our time at Fish Creek Campground was amazing, to say the least. There are lots of great walking trails in and around the campground if you are not in the mood for a long hike. One thing that we learned was that some campground has strict rules on food storage and generator times and Fish Creek Campground is one of them. Make sure to pay close attention to the rules manual so you do not get fined for breaking the rules.
