Avalanche campground in located in one of the most popular sections of Glacier National Park west of the Continental Divide.

The campground is situated within old growth cedar and hemlock trees, keeping the area cool during the summer months. The campground accomodates tent and RV campers, however only 50 sites will accomodate vehicle lengths up to 26 feet. Potable water is accessible in the campground, and restroom facilities are equipped with flush toilets and sinks with running water.

Bring your hiking boots and binoculars if you are staying at Avalanche Campground. Two popular day hikes, Trail of the Cedars, and Avalanche Lake, afford visitors spectacular scenery and glimpses of birds and wildlife that inhabit the area. Plant enthuisiasts will appreciate the diverse species of flora.

Be sure to check out many of the evening programs with a ranger at the Avalanche Amphitheater, just a short stroll from the campground. Use Glacier's free shuttle service at this campground to access other shuttle stops on the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Sites are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
