Terrible, Do Not Waste Your Money Here
My boyfriend and I were camping around Glacier in our van and decided to treat ourselves and go "glamping". We drove to the check-in area and both started laughing because we were so shocked we spent all this money to stay in a Tent near the MAIN HIGHWAY and near about 50 OTHER TENTS. We walked to our tent to check it out, we were not impressed with the Treehouse design as our view was other tents and you could hear the highway perfectly. We left after 15 minutes of checking in.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE!

Things you need to know before you book
I was looking forward to staying at the under canvas in glacier. The website made it look like a really fun place to be. You do need to know however that even though they show electricity on a tent in the website there is no electricity in any of the tents. So if you have any medical equipment razor hair styling etc. you will not be able to use that in the tent. You will need to go down to the communal bathrooms for that. Also they don’t tell you that the woodburning furnace needs to be fed every hour in order for it to stay on. We had some pretty cold nights at 40° and woke up to No fire in the burner. We had rented the tent that included the shower and toilet in the tent. Those worked very nicely, and the bed was very comfortable. But in my estimation the over $300 per night is grossly overpriced. I will not stay there again.

This does not live up to the perception created through the marketing. Better off at a regular camp site or a cabin. There is no privacy and rules are different for each person. Claim all sorts of perks but really this is not glamping it’s just camping. Make sure you back everything including the kitchen sink.

We really, REALLY wanted to fall in love with Under Canvas. I love the idea of it, but here are a few takeaways. This Glacier location is literally on the side of the highway. The location could not have been more Of let down. Our tent was so incredibly loud at night we could not sleep- highway noise is SO loud, and the train comes through about every hour. On our second night I had to use ear plugs, sound machine and benedryl and it still was rough. Unless you can sleep through a steam engine, or sleep is just not important to you- you’re going to be pretty bummed on this. Secondly, we stayed in a tent that had a private shower and toilet. Def worth going for that over the public bath house, however the shower has ONE temperature- scalding hot. Good luck with more than a ten second shower. Lastly, the price. I could overlook these faults if it was a steal- but this lodging is not cheap- it’s more like hotel prices- and I really think it’s overpriced for what is offered. On a positive note, my kids loved it and thought it was super fun- and the staff is really kind and helpful. I want to think we would try this again at another park, but I’m just not sure we would.

Nice over night stop
We stopped over night at Under Canvas Glacier on a motorcycle trip thought Montana. We passed it twice on the HWY due to very poor signage. That would be my only complaint. The staff are friendly the environment is really cool. We travel lots and stay in many glamping tents this is you’re typical glamping tent.
If you don’t like the train don’t bother. It didn’t bother us at all but heard a lot of complaints from Others.
