Loop A of St. Mary Campground is closed until August 1, 2014 due to flooding.

St. Mary campground is the largest campground on the east side of Glacier National Park and is open year round. It is located approximately one half mile west of the park boundary, near the town of St. Mary. Activities such as interpretive programs, book sales, and shuttle service tours are located at the nearby St. Mary Visitor Center.

Though shade may be sparse, aspen trees grace St. Mary campground with soothing sounds from spring and summer breezes, and colorful splashes of yellow late in the season. Of the three loops in St. Mary Campground, Loop A is the most sheltered, especially good for tent campers. Loop A is also generator free. Views of Singleshot, East Flattop, and Red Eagle Mountains compliment the landscape, especially in Loop B and C. Potable water is accessible in the campground, and restroom facilities provide flush toilets and sinks with running water. Showers are located in Loop C for registered campers only.

Nearby the campground, just outside the park, you will find amenities such as restaurants, gift shops, camp stores, gas, and a grocery store.

St. Mary is one of two campgrounds in the park that take reservations. You may sign up through the National Reservation System at http://www.recreation.gov/. Sites can be reserved June 1 through early September. Individual campsites may be reserved up to 6 months in advance and not less than 3 nights prior. The two group sites can be reserved up to a year in advance. Sites not reserved ahead of time are available on a first come first serve basis.

From early September through the end the May, all sites are first come first served. Primitive camping is available April 1 through late May and again from mid September through November 30 for $10.00 per night. Winter camping begins December 1 and runs through March 31. There is no fee for winter camping, but a valid park entrance pass is required.

When the campground is open for primitive or winter camping, there is no water available and campers are advised to bring their own drinking water.
