St. Mary campground is the largest campground on the east side of Glacier National Park and is open year round. Activities such as interpretive programs, book sales, and shuttle service tours are located at the nearby St. Mary Visitor Center. St. Mary is one of the campgrounds in the park that take reservations for part of the summerLocated just north of the ghost town Alice, this popular, 1.5-mile out-and-back in Colorado's Front Range follows dirt roads and rocky trails up to the snowy slopes of St. Marys Glacier. Start at the pay parking area next to Fall River Road and walk southwest to reach the trailhead. The first 0.3 mile climbs up undeveloped roads before turning onto a rocky trail that leads to the banks of St. Marys Lake. Half a mile in, cross a small bridge over the lake's outlet creek and continue north, passing up-close views of Fox Mountain to the east (look for yellow-bellied marmots in the surrounding rocks and meadow). After 0.7 mile, the trail reaches the base of St. Marys Glacier. Climb another 100 yards up the glacier and take in views across the Silver Creek drainage. Follow the same route back to the trailhead.

One of the most beautiful places we hiked to on vacation!! I could have spent the entire day there just soaking in the scenery. The water is freezing but well worth taking a dip in. The beach is perfect to camp or have a picnic. The hike up was very steady and easily visible so you won't get lost. The view of the mountains, snow, crystal clear lake, and sandy beaches is truly an unforgettable experience.. definitely a place I will go back to <3

Unfortunately we were unable to find parking to see the glacier. The parking lots were absolutely packed without room to even turn around to get out. Spent 15 min just trying to exit the parking lot. Saturday mornings must be a bad time to try to visit.
