Apgar Campground

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by MarkR37 on June 26, 2001

On the west side of Glacier National Park there is the Apgar Campground which is situated on at the end of Lake Powell. Compared to most campgrounds I have stayed at, this one was good in that it had nice wooded lots, was very clean and was within walking distance of the lake. The problem was I had just stayed at Many Glaciers campground the 2 nights before and Many Glaciers had spectacular scenery and there were showers available which was a big plus.

We saw some Black Bears roaming around about 12 miles from the campgrounds and deer were common. The area also has several stores and a couple of restaurants down the road and the ranger station was really good and had good information. All in all it was a nice place to stay. Prices to camp were $12 for an RV, there were 196 camp sites total and 25 were able to accommodate RV''s. You have to keep your camp site clean in all Glacier campgrounds or you risk fines in the morning or even an unwanted visit by a hungry Grizzly Bear. If you leave food locked in your car a bear can easily rip the door off the hinge in a matter of seconds so don''t mess around and store all food in the anti bear food lockers provided at each camp site.
