Glacier National Park's most remote frontcountry campground has 13 sites. Surrounded by trees on Kintla Lake, the quiet campground has breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks. Potable water and pit toilets are available in season, but between September 11 and May 27, don't expect the amenities. Camping is $15 per night during the summer and $10 per night in the off-season.
Views from the gravel beach are spectacular. The campground layout is tight, so don't expect a lot of privacy. The choice sites back up against Kintla Creek.
Be sure to introduce yourself to ranger Lyle Ruterbories. He's been patrolling the Kintla Lake campground for more than two decades, and he's happy to help you make the most of your stay.
