Campground Description

The hike to Upper Two Medicine Lake, when combined with the boat shuttle, makes for very easy access to the backcountry of Glacier National Park. Even families with small children can do this hike, and the little campground at the upper lake creates an easy backpacking trip for beginners or families.

There are four “developed” campsites, each consisting of a clearing in the woods with a few logs to mark the spot. There is a pit toilet and a food prep area for a fire (when allowed), and there are food lockers and several logs for seating. This campground has a nice communal feel to it and plenty of privacy between sites. Upper Two Medicine Lake is a few steps up the trail, and when the boat crowds have gone home, this spot is as peaceful as any remote section of Glacier National Park.

This is bear country, and grizzlies are often seen in this area. Always carry bear spray and be sure to hang all food and smelly items, keeping them out of packs and tents.
