Re: Glacier National Park campsites

It was peak time in the park so fairly busy. The first day we arrived at Bowman about 1pm and there were about 6-8 campsites open. We were trying to be flexible so we packed up everything the second day to explore thinking we might stay somewhere further South. By 4pm, every campsite in the entire park was full according to ranger. There was a nice little place on the outer road up to Bowman near Polebridge that is National Forest, so we camped for free with no one around! We actually had pastries from Polebridge everyday we were there...some of the best fresh baked stuff I've ever had!

Re: Glacier National Park campsites

Steve, thanks for the Bowman Lake info. I just camped there and it was wonderful. The bumpy 37 mile road was worth it for the bakery a the Polebridge Mercantile, alone. The lake was a beautiful clear blue. My SMB was the biggest vehicle there. Do not spread the word as we do not want to spoil this spot with tourist. People already want to pave the road there.

Re: Glacier National Park campsites

Glad you enjoyed it Angel.

Maybe I should delete my posts about that area to keep it all to ourselves
