Glacier Meadow RV Park & St. Mary - KOA

We arrived here at St. Marys-KOA today around 11 am... Another long travel day.... 74 miles (ha-ha). As suspected at Glacier Meadow RV Park we had no phone service and lousy wireless Internet. But all in all it was a peaceful campground with the train whistles blowing in the distance. Many of you know how much I love trains and to be able to hear them during the day and night is like an added bonus for me. Here is our campsite and the view from the front window of our RV.



We went for a drive on Saturday and ended up at Izaak Walton Inn which we found interesting because we had stayed at a Izaak Walton Lodge in Yankeetown, Fl. many years ago. The Izaak Walton Inn was built next to the railroad yard in 1939 for the use of railroad service personnel. It was also intended to serve as an entrance to Glacier National Park between East Glacier and West Glacier, but this plan never materialized. I have since found out there are several Inns named after Mr. Walton but I had know idea who he was. I looked him up and it appears that he as an author of a book called THE COMPLEAT ANGLER (1653) and some other books that were not as recognized. Anywho it was a lovely place and we enjoyed sitting in there front gardens and watching the trains go by.









We will be here at St. Marys - KOA for the next 5 days... we usually try too avoid staying at KOAs but this was the nicer of the 2 RV parks in this area. We have a nice pull trough site and a beautiful view of the mountains right out the front window. From this area we will be visiting the North part of Glacier NP. Those trips will include Many Glaciers & Waterton-Glacier up in Canada.
