This is one of the best drive-in campgrounds in the entire National Park System, in my humble opinion. Now, I haven't visited each and every one in the country, but I've been in a lot, and this ranks up there with North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Devil's Garden at Arches, and other similar spectacular campgrounds in the system. Pretty tough to beat the view across Two Medicine Lake, and it has a very good camp store, flush toilets, and reasonable solitude. Two Medicine is off the beaten track at Glacier -- you're away from the Going to the Sun Road and all the crowds and traffic associated with it. The scenery and hiking trails are just as spectacular (and in some ways more so) as anywhere in the park.
We stayed here three nights just before fourth of July week. Our site was in Loop C, with a great view of Rising Wolf Mountain, and the farthest loop from the entrance to the campground. The campground filled up each night, but it was quiet, especially after 9 or 10 p.m. or so. Good mix of tenters and RVers, and the RVs are required to shut generators off by 10. The park ranger put on a great talk one night we were there about the history of the area - be sure to catch it if you can. The rangers were great, reinforced what we already knew about bear precautions (each campsite has a generous-sized bear box for storing smellables).
Only downside to the camp was the mosquitoes - they were out in large numbers and aggressive. We brought lots of DEET and used it liberally. It did the job.
A couple of excellent hiking trails start in or near the campground and give you access to spectacular views . In all, we had a fantastic time at this campground.
