Sites are narrow; picnic table is designed for two people (one on each side table), though an adult and a child could probably share a bench. Sites are not maintained nor policed. When we arrived, our site was littered with dirty Q-tips, cigarette butts and other litter. During the two nights we were there, the septic hose of the unit next to ours was leaking (noticeably) on the ground, both from its juncture with the unit and at the in-ground receiver. Nobody from the park sought to correct the problem. They probably were not even aware of it; it never appeared to us that anyone responsible for the campground made the rounds to see what was going on. This is a place to be avoided.
This park is operated by the City of Chelan, which does a very good job. It is a family-oriented park with easy access from the park to swimming and water sports on the lake. The park is well-maintained and located in close proximity to the many recreational activities available in the area. We only had two complaints. First, a large plum tree overhung our site, dropping its overripe fruit on our RV, the picnic table and our outdoor chairs. Second, there is no laundry facility in the park and the ONLY laundromat within driving distance, though located directly across the street from the Park's entrance, is so filthy it is surprising that it hasn't been shut down by the City's health department.
If you are traveling in any RV with a slide, you don't want to stay here. We tried four different sites before we found a site that enabled us to open our slide without destroying either the park's shrubbery or the slide. Even then, we had to park with the 5th Wheel's tires on the (very narrow) bricked patio. The sites in this park are so narrow that they don't even give you a full picnic table. Instead you get a half of a table (one bench and a top that's 2/3 the width of a normal picnic table). At some point in time (pre-slides), this was a good park. All sites are paved and there are lots of trees and shrubberies. It needs to be modernized by replacing every three sites with two sites. Bathrooms and showers were generally clean though not immaculate. In the site behind ours, they allowed an old camper and two old cars. At most, there should have been a camper and one car. Because one of the two cars was parked on the common drive, pulling into the site was nearly impossible. This "resort" also is a storage business. Until the sites are renovated, the owners should stick to the storage.
If you're not traveling with kids and don't need a campground with lots of activities for children, this is the park for you. Well spaced sites set in a pine woods offer shade, seclusion, quiet and a sense of privacy. The park is on route 2, ten miles from the west entrance to Glacier NP, and is set far enough back from the highway as to completely eliminate road noise. It is also convenient to a decent supermarket in Columbia Falls. The facilities (common grounds, restrooms, showers, laundry, etc.) are all meticulously maintained. We liked Glacier NP so much that we are thinking of returning for an extended visit. If we do, Mountain Meadow is where we'll stay. And, if you are traveling with kids, there is a stocked trout pond right in front of the office and a water/amusement park right down the road.
We've been on the road for four weeks, changing camp grounds every three days on average. This is the nicest place we've stayed. It is meticulously maintained with large lawns (not just grass) at each site. The bathrooms and showers are always clean. It is quiet and away from traffic. We stayed three nights and would have stayed longer if there were more to do in the area.
We stayed at this park for seven nights (seventh night free). The sites are spacious, grassy and well maintained. The bath and showers are clean. It is located well off the main highway and is very quiet, situated in a picturesque bowl of pine-covered hills. It is located less than a mile from the entrance to Custer State Park and within easy driving distance to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse Monument. If you take advantage of the many activities available in the Park, this campground is a perfect place for a week's vacation.
