Perfect location for East Glacier and Many Glacier!
We camped at the St. Mary KOA for seven nights last month and had a very positive experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we found the campground to be quiet and peaceful. The laundromat and restrooms were very clean and their store was well stocked with supplies, even late in the season. The small grocery store in town had bare shelves since they were not restocking that late in the season and we were glad we had brought plenty of food with us. We were only a five minute drive from the east entrance to Glacier and about twenty minutes from Many Glacier. We hiked every day we were there. We ordered pizza one night and were pleased with the quality of the pizzas and salad. Due to the winds and cooler weather, we were not able to grill or eat outside. We used the Wifi daily and had no problems with it, but we were disappointed that we had no cell phone coverage. We were told when we checked in that only Verizon phones worked at the campground. We would definitely stay here again when we come back to the east side. This was the best location we have ever had in our four visits to Glacier National Park.

Very friendly employees!
We stayed here for one night and rented a car. We felt very welcome due to Cathy’s warmth. She was very kind. When returning the car and ordening pizza Debi was also a delight. Unfortunately the pizzas were a tad cold. But it was a very cold and windy evening. Some trees might help? Especially the personnel made our stay wonderful.

Wouldn’t serve us ice cream
This KOA says that the camp store and ice cream stand close at 9pm. We were in there at least 10 minutes before closing and the young girl behind the ice cream stand would not serve us. She said “No, you can’t get ice cream because I still have to deep clean everything”. I said, “but don’t you close at 9”? And she said “Yeah we do, but I don’t wanna get home really late and I have animals to feed, my little hedgehog needs to be fed”. Terrible customer service on that part. If you close at 9 you close at 9. (I’ve worked in customer service for 13 years, and food service for 8 of those years). All of the ice cream was still out. And part of a usual food service industry shift is cleaning up after you serve your customers, and after you actually close. Not claiming I won’t serve you because it will inconvenience my job. We weren’t asking for sundaes, we just wanted a simple scoop of ice cream. Otherwise I like this KOA, but they do need more bathrooms.

Stayed in the RV Park - Very nice experience
We stayed in the RV park part of this KOA and it was very nice. We had one of the premium sites, so it was extra special. We had great views, a gas grill, deep fire pit, seats, and patio. A really nice place to park the RV for a few days. They have a lot of amenities at their lodge and also have a pool and hot tub. They have a pizza service on-site and a full store with all your go-to needs for stayin around the glacier park. I would certainly stay here again if I was looking to come back, it was perfect access to the sun road and the east side of the park.

We stayed 3 nights here before moving to the other side of the park. Nice amenities here. Wonderful updated laundry, Fresh cinnamon rolls made everyday you have to try the homemade maple bar with bacon, delish! If you do not feel like cooking you can go down to the pavilion and we had a BBQ chicken dinner price was good and I didn't have to cook! The Dog Park was huge and our 2 little ones enjoyed it. They had recently installed WIFI and it seemed to work good for the amount of time we used it. This is a quiet park no road noise. Convenient to the 2 entrances of Glacier National Park.
