Reservations for Mountain View RV Park can be made all year long. However, if you are planning to arrive during our busy season, we highly recommend that you reserve your spot as early as possible (January, February, early March) for the best chance of reserving an available site for the days and duration you most desire.

Our RV site reservation policies are as follows:

  • 1-5 Days - Deposit is equal to your first nights stay. You must give 48 hour notice to cancel or your deposit will be forfeited.*
  • 6-29 days - $150 deposit - Must give a 10-day notice to cancel or your deposit will be forfeited.*
  • 30 days or more – $300 deposit – Must give a 30-day notice to cancel or your deposit will be forfeited.*

* Forfeiture will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Our busiest time of the year usually corresponds with the opening of the Going-to-the-Sun road in Glacier National Park, which usually happens mid to late June depending upon snow pack and spring weather. The season can stay pretty busy through mid to late August.

While bears can and do venture down into the valley and into the area where the RV park is located, it is certainly more rare to see them down here than it is in the park or other RV resorts and campgrounds in more remote locations. You should always use some level of precaution, but your chances of running into a bear in the RV park are pretty slim.

The chances of running into a bear while hiking or playing in the park are certainly much greater. You should always make plenty of noise when you are hiking in the park and carry bear spray with you in case you do have an encounter. Most encounters can be avoided if you hike in a group and make plenty of noise to avoid startling a bear.

While it is possible to take your RV into the entrance gates of the park, you will not be able to travel very far up the Going-to-the-Sun road. Vehicles over 21 feet in length are not allowed beyond Avalanche Creek on the west side of the park, or the Sun Point area on the east side.
