Located at the western entrance of Glacier National Park, within the park and along the shores of Lake McDonald, this is one of the park’s most scenic, convenient, and popular campgrounds. The Apgar visitor’s center, where you can buy basic necessities and also get park information, is right outside of the campground. Going-to-the-Sun Road, Glacier National Park’s most famous and scenic road, starts just outside of Apgar as well.
There’s a reason that Apgar is beloved by visitors to Glacier National Park. It’s right on the shore’s of the park’s most popular recreational lake, Lake McDonald. The area offers beautiful walking trails, picnic areas, and boating. Despite being out in the wilderness, a lively community forms amongst the visitors to Apgar Campground each summer. This is a great family-friendly campground with areas for children to bike around and play.
