Located in the North Fork area of Glacier National Park is Bowman Lake Campground.  There are  46 sites nestled in trees on the shore of the picturesque Bowman Lake. Each with a table and fire ring. Primitive camping.  Vault toilets and water available.  Proper food storage is a must because this is bear country.  Vehicles over 21' in length or trailer combinations are prohibited.

They are famous for their popular Mercantile Bakery that has amazing huckleberry bread, rolls, and cookies along with backed sandwiches.  The Northern Lights Saloon and Cafe has a variety of delicious dinner options.  Enjoy a local beer and local music sitting outdoors at a picnic table and take in the breathtaking mountain views. Next to the Mercantile is the Northern Light cabin restaurant that serves a variety of dinner options including fish, steak, and chili. Local beer and musicians can be enjoyed sitting outside at a picnic table. Campground open May 18 through September 10.  $15/night fee.  Boating, fishing, and swimming are enjoyed on Bowman Lake.
