About Kintla Lake surrounded by towering mountains is over 8 miles in length and up to a mile wide and is the fourth largest lake in the park. For those who canoe and kayak, Kintla Lake is a paddlers paradise; no motorcraft is allowed. Fisherman will also enjoy Kintla Lake for the trout found in it. And if you like to hike, don't forget to pack your boots, as day hikes and extended trips into the backcountry can be found near the campground. Kintla Lake campground is Glacier National Park's most remote frontcountry and car camping campground. It is located in the upper most northwest section of the park known as the North Fork, approximately 40 miles from the West Entrance and the Canadian border. Though the drive is very slow and bumpy on dirt roads, the scenery along the way is spectacular. Part of the drive takes you through the tiny community of Polebridge, and sections of the park that notably burned in 1988 and 2003. Due to it's remote location, the campground is very quiet and is very rarely filled, offering tent campers a sense of solitude. The campground sits on Kintla Lake and is surrounded by trees, providing shade, cover, and filtered views of the lake and the mountains that circle it. A hand pump is available for potable water, and pit toilets are located in the campground as well. Limited amenities can be found in Polebridge. RVs and truck and trailer combinations are not recommended at Kintla Lake due to the nature of the long, narrow, and windy dirt road to the campground. 13 sites are on a first-come, first-serve basis. $15/night summer fee. Please limit your stay to 7 days. Special regulations regarding food storage and generator use in effect.
