There is no denying the beauty of this West Glacier, Montana KOA. The property is quite special in many ways. Greg and Theresa McClure’s campground received KOA’s President’s and Founder’s Awards for 2013. “Excellence always happens on purpose and this campground is cutting edge with a strong vision, said Mike Atkinson, KOA’s Senior Business Development Consultant. One morning I was able to grab breakfast with Mike, who was on property working for the week, and owner Greg. One of the things that I love about KOA is the friendliness of their owners and staff and the pride that they have in their properties!
This Holiday branded KOA is unlike your run of the mill campground in many ways. The kids loved Scoops ice cream shop being on site as well as the game room, heated pool and park. You can come to the lodge to have breakfast or dinner with Gene. The grounds are gorgeously landscaped and meticulously maintained. Many pull thru RV sites were redone over the offseason and ground has been broken for the addition of 36 more spots to open up next summer. The owners are constantly looking for areas to improve on their already gorgeous park. Obviously, their location can’t be beat if you’re here to explore Glacier National Park. The West entrance is only 2 1/2 miles up the road.
New friends and family tent spots just opened up while we were there and are the first of their kind in the KOA brand. They feature 3 pads for tent camping so you can be right next to your favorite people, which sounds like fun. Or at least the kids would have a ball doing this! There are lots of cabins to stay in here as well!
We loved that this KOA offered non denominational worship service here in the log-fashioned pavilion lodge. Sue, who has been an employee at this KOA for almost 30 years, led the worship and we just loved starting out our Sunday morning with her.
The kids loved working on this tepee nestled in the lodgepole pine trees right behind our RV site. We had a hard time pulling them away from there to head into Glacier National Park! We did have a lot of rain and cold temps during our few days here unfortunately. We still thoroughly loved our time in this area, but will have to come back in July next time!
