Campground Overview

Before you book info:::

Glacier Lodge suffered some winter storm damage which affected our power lines. While our electrical issues are currently being repaired, our normal power to the cabins is down. We still have alllll the other amenities guests are used to such as running water, flushing toilets, hot showers, heaters, lights, etc... just no power to run cabin refrigerators and no outlets for guests to charge their devices. We can supply you with all the ice you need and can also supply a cooler if needed. With advance notice, we can supply power to select cabins on a case-by-case basis. Please call before booking to get more info on this. 

Established in 1917, Glacier Lodge, nestled at just below 8,000 feet on Big Pine Creek, has always been the gateway to some of the best hiking, fishing, hunting and climbing in the country. And as the new owners, we are here to help you with whatever experience you desire.

Up here, Silence. It's the first thing you hear after you take a deep breath of mountain air, filling your lungs deeply with the healthy pine scent and letting it out slowly. You can hear the sweet breeze through the pine trees and feel it's coolness on your bare skin. You see into forever, and the mountains soar toward the bluest blue sky you've ever seen. If you choose to rough it with us during the off-season, you will experience a brisk cold, howling winds and often light snowflakes covering the ground. Campfires are cozy as you sit outside and enjoy the scenery. After all, you are here to enjoy the outdoors.....right??

In 1998, an electrical fire burned the main lodge to the ground. It was a great loss for all of us. This was one of many fires that has plagued mountain resorts in years past. We are planning on rebuilding the Majestic Glacier Lodge as early as 2025. In the meantime, 8 rustic cabins, rv sites and tent sites remain open for rental and allow easy access to the beautiful high country along with 

We look forward to hearing from you and visiting with you when you arrive. Campfires, if used carefully, are allowed in the pits outside each cabin.

SOME GREAT INFO:

***NO USE OF MICROWAVES, COFFEE MACHINES, HEATERS, AC, or anything with a heating element at your site unless it's connected to a different power source other than Glacier Lodge. Campsites do NOT have any power.  Our resort runs off of hydroelectric energy which is power generated by moving water. For us, our hydro water supply comes from Big Pine Creek. As the creek level varies, so does our flow of power. This is the most basic AND UNSTABLE in terms of power supply due to many factors such a creek level, a block in the hydro-electric generator, weather, temp manual shut down for maintenance. Please note, There is currently no power to our resort for the summer of 2023.

***We are on a septic system set to be upgraded in 2024. It does leach; especially after heavy rains or a busy weekend***

***Our campground, while beautiful, is very rocky, curvy (thanks trees) and at a heavy incline which makes towing larger (30-35 ft) rigs without 4x4 nearly impossible***

***Our campground bathroom does have a sink and a flush toilet but is very basic-no shower yet!*** 

***No electric vehicle charging***
