2. Kintla Lake Campground, Glacier National Park, Montana

One of the most remote campgrounds in the Rocky Mountains, this out-of-the-way treasure has only 13 sites and is best enjoyed with a tent rather than an RV. Only 40 miles from the Canadian border, it offers wonderful mountain views and a quiet, tree lined Kintla Lake. The drive there goes along bumpy dirt roads and through the tiny community of Polebridge. Open only during the summer, the tiny store offers a wonderful array of homemade treats. Amenities include clean water accessed by hand pump, and outhouse toilets. While canoes and kayaks are welcome, no motorcraft is allowed on the lake. While you're there, be sure to enjoy a good day hike or even an extended trip into the back country. No reservations are accepted.
