We were at Many Glacier last year. Your pictures are much better than mine. We really loved it there.

Glacier is my favorite National Park. I've been there a number of times, in fact, my daughter got married on the shore of Lake McDonald & had her reception at the group campground at Apgar.

While I've stayed on both sides of the park, I prefer the West. Still, my favorite campground is Two Medicine, although it can be difficult to get into since it is first come. Apgar usually has empty sites as long as you arrive early. You can check the average & daily fill times for any of the Glacier campgrounds at the camping status page. Click on the campground & check at the bottom of the page for fill times.

Where ever you stay, be sure to drive out to the Polebridge Mercantile on the West side for a sticky roll or cinnamon bun. A great bakery!

I have a page of photos of Glacier during a 2011 trip here.

Think we stayed at Two Medicine back in my pre-trailer days. Agreed, western side is best.

Best for camping, that is. For entertainment after a fine dinner well served in the big dining room, however...

Glacier NP is my all time favorite Park. We have visited it many times since 2004. Two years ago I rode Amtrack from Vancouver,Wa to Essex, Mt stayed at Izzack Walton Inn, rented a car and toured both sides of the park in October.

I think the east side is more car friendly, less congested and I loved Many Glacier where we saw a good size grizzly up close.
West side is more commercial, more people, but I did love the lake.
