Rising Sun Campground is located where, "the mountains meet the prairies", just west of St. Mary and halfway along St. Mary Lake.
Campers at Rising Sun will enjoy beautiful sunrises in the morning with Red Eagle Mountain as a backdrop, and the campground serves as a convenient base camp to many day hikes located east of Logan Pass. Some sites are open, allowing for cool breezes throughout the day, while others are located among trees, accommodating those seeking some shade and privacy. Potable water is accessible in the campground, and restroom facilities are equipped with flush toilets and sinks with running water. Be sure to join a ranger for nightly evening programs.
Adjacent to the campground is a camp store, a casual restaurant, and token operated showers (1 shower stall for men, and 1 shower stall for women). Boat tours on St. Mary Lake are located near Rising Sun, and shuttle service is available at this location. Lace up your boots for a hike to Otokomi Lake (5.2 mi one way)from the trailhead located next to the campground. Use Glacier's free shuttle service at this campground to access other shuttle stops on the Going-to-the- Sun Road.
Sites are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
