Montana's Glacier National Park is a camper's paradise. Glacier is well known for its natural beauty and there are numerous options for sightseeing, camping and adventures. Known to Native Americans as the "Shining Mountains" and the "Backbone of the World," Glacier National Park is named for its prominent glacier carved terrain.
More than 700-miles of trail lead adventurous hikers through pristine wilderness, alpine meadows, rugged mountains and alpine lakes. The Park preserves more than one million acres of forests, peaks and glacial-carved valleys in the Northern Rocky Mountains and is home to 70 species of mammals and 270 species of birds.
Glacier offers 13 campgrounds with more than 1,000 campsites. Pets are allowed in campgrounds, but are not allowed on any park trails.
