Fun, frugal lodging just 15 miles from the west entrance to Glacier National Park. With an on-site kennel for your family pet.

With over 1 million acres of wilderness to hike, lakes to explore, and rivers to raft, Glacier National Park is the perfect Montana family vacation! The family-owned Glacier Basecamp Lodge is a fun, very affordable lodging option.

Accommodations for the Whole Family

Accommodating families of all sizes, including kids, pets, and multigenerational groups.

Our lodging options include Glacier Basecamp Motel, vacation rental apartments, cabins, RV hookup – or for those who are ready for loads of fun – camp under the stars in one of our Bell tents. Each tent interior is designed with solid foundations, log beds and furniture and only a sneak peek away from our restorative Mountain View.


You are our friends and we want to keep you safe.

We’re big believers in bear spray. It keeps hikers – and bears safe. That’s why we sell it at our lodge and train you in how to use it. We’ll even buy your unused spray back from you when you head home.

When it Comes To Hospitality, You’re Part of the Family

We’re not just a friendly lodge, we’re a community of friends and family

After a hard day of recreating in Glacier Park, Whitefish, Bigfork or Columbia Falls, we encourage our guests to relax in the evenings at our community fire pits. What a great way to meet people from all over the nation, and probably all over the world! Nothing draws out the conversation like a relaxing fire under a starry Montana sky. We provide the firewood, occasionally, we even provide some adult libations! S’more crafting ingredients are always available in our office. So, let’s turn your inner S’more builder loose! We like live music, too! Musical instruments are always encouraged at the fire pit and while you’re over there, you might want to flex your skills at the horseshoe pit.

Traveling with your best friend?

We have the only on-premise kennels near West Glacier!

We’re pet friendly, (we have enough pets of our own). Traveling to Glacier National Park is challenging with pets because of very restrictive park pet policies. We have three 8’x12′ lockable outdoor chain-link kennels available for FREE.  The kennels are covered in shade cloth and have an insulated dog house inside each one. Guests are responsible for providing their own food/water while they are out for the day. 
We are green. We are protecting our habitat.
After all, you’re here to enjoy natures beauty, right? So are we and we are going to do all we can to protect our habitat. In keeping with this goal, we try to reduce the environmentally taxing practice of washing bedding every night. Who washes their own bedding every night at home? We may even resort to sorting through trash if you’re not using your recycling bins. Help us to keep our planet safe.
Please note: At this time Flathead County is not taking plastic recycling due to China’s import ban. We encourage guests to fill reusable water bottles in the lobby at night and in the mornings. We have reusable water bottles in the lobby.
