The Great Outdoors

One of the best places that you can take RV rentals in Glacier County is Glacier National Park, and it’s just outside your front door when you’re camping at St. Mary/East Glacier KOA. Known for its spectacular mountain peaks and deep valleys which were carved by glaciers over millennia, Glacier National Park is as much a dream destination for photographers as it is for adventure seekers. There’s certainly no shortage of recreational activities and no matter which season you choose to visit with a campervan rental, you’ll find plenty of things to keep all the family busy.The mountain slopes of this national park are threaded with hiking trails, many of which are open to horses and bicycles and range from easy to challenging. The best time for hiking is fall when the trails are draped in shades of red and amber. One of the most popular trails is the Sun Point Nature Trail, which rewards hikers with breathtaking panoramic views over St. Mary’s Lake. During the winter, these trails are ideal for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Anyone visiting with little ones can have fun sledding or challenging friends and family to a snowball fight.Summer is the prime time for swimming and boating. The park's rivers and lakes remain between cool to icy all year round, and it’s a refreshing break from the summer heat. You can canoe or kayak on Lake McDonald, the largest of the park’s lakes, or apply in advance for a motorized boating permit.After exploring Glacier National Park, you can hop across the border to the Police Outpost Provincial Park in southern Alberta, Canada. The park takes its name from the police outpost which was mounted on this open area in the 1980s in order to deter smugglers. Today, the lakeside grasslands and murky wetlands are a natural habitat for flora and fauna, and a natural retreat for nature lovers. Here you can see a wide variety of birdlife and even grizzly bears from the park’s boardwalks and hiking trails. Marsh wren, American bittern, and sandhill cranes are just some of the species that you can spot. Once the snowy season takes off, visitors can use these trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Meanwhile, Outpost Lake is suitable for paddle boats, tubing, canoeing, and kayaking.Another unique place to visit with your RV rental is the Blackfeet Nation Bison Reserve. The herd congregates on the southwest border of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. The protected area works to maintain indigenous culture and traditions and conserve wildlife habitats by encouraging ecotourism. You can see the Blackfeet herd of bison by taking your St. Mary camper rental on a scenic drive through the reservation.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
