Natural Features Sprague Creek is heavily forested with partial shade. Some sites have views of Lake McDonald. The park is named for its prominent glacier-carved terrain and remnant glaciers descended from the ice ages almost 10,000 years ago. Its diverse habitats are home to nearly 70 species of mammals including the grizzly bear, wolverine, gray wolf and lynx. Over 270 species of birds visit or reside in the park, including such varied species as harlequin ducks, dippers and golden eagles. Nearby Attractions One must-see attraction is Waterton Lakes National Park, Glacier's sister park across the Canadian-U.S. border. As the other half of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, Canada's Waterton Lakes National Park offers great hiking, scenic boat cruises and several scenic drives all centered around the townsite of Waterton.

For $20 in the park, you cant beat it. I usually opt for free camping, BLM, ect. I wanted to stay in the park, and this was perfect. Bathrooms, fresh water, and short walk to the lake. The sites included a fire ring, picnic table, food storage, and a tent pad. I saw a small bear wondering the campgrounds early in the evening. The sites do fill on Fri and Sat nights, so if you're staying on the weekend, come early.

This campground, on a narrow strip of land without any hiking trail leaving it, is very crowded; we had rude neighbors clanging community bear boxes and slamming car doors at all hours of day and night. There were too many campfires blazing smokily for too many hours, road noise was significant, and the lake is polluted. No bars LTE. The Apgar Visitor Center's Wifi didn't work.
