Glacier Summer Fun Camp

We had a bit of a hiatus from the blog and work a week ago because my parents and grandparents came to visit us and see Glacier National Park. We were joking that Allison and I basically ran an adult summer camp for them and looking back at all the pictures that seems pretty accurate.

So, for a little bit of fun, let us show you all the amazing opportunities that you too can experience at Nik and Allison’s Summer Fun Camp™! Note: locations and activities subject to change, contact us for details about your selected dates.

Hiking – Hidden Lake and Grinnell Lake

Here at Nik and Allison’s Summer Fun Camp™, we pride ourselves at choosing activities that are fun for the whole family. For this week, we started our trip with a drive up the Going-to-the-Sun Road through the middle of Glacier National Park and capped it off with a hiking trip up to the Hidden Lake Overlook.

A few days later we did a beautiful hike out to the aquamarine waters of Grinnell Lake.

Float Trips – Middle Fork of the Flathead River

At Nik and Allison’s Summer Fun Camp™, we want to get you on the water! For this week we started with a Class I rafting/floating trip on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River between West Glacier and the Blankenship Bridge.

You can relax while expert guide Nik does all the work! Sit back and enjoy some of the clearest river water in the country.

Wildlife Viewing – Unique Sights Guaranteed!*

We got particularly lucky on this trip and were able to check off all of the largest animals in the area. We saw:

and Bears!

…but the bear ran across the road before we were able to get our cameras out, so here is a caterpillar:

Water Skiing and Tubing – Flathead Lake

The capstone of this trip included a speedboat rental on Flathead Lake. We tried (sometimes successfully) to water ski and also did some tubing. The sights were fantastic, the drinks were cold and the company the best. 🙂

Lodging – Luxurious Vacation Homes

When you stay with us on any of Nik and Allison’s Fun Camps™, you won’t stay with family on the guest bed that sinks to the floor, no! We offer luxurious vacation homes with beautiful views*, soft beds*, huge kitchens* and convenient locations*.

*Amenities subject to change and based on availability. 

World Class Food and Drinks – Chef Allison White

Our classically trained chef Allison White will wow you with her home-style takes on classic dishes from around the world. This week, the menu included tasty selections like our gourmet taco bar and vegetarian pasta bolognese. We also got to experience some of the local wine and beer including the excellent Flathead Lake Brewing Co. and the rustic charm of The Night Owl restaurant.

All joking aside, I’m so happy we got to see my family and spend a full week of vacation with them. It was really special to share a sliver of our RV life with them and have fun in and around the National Park. Love you guys! It’s so nice to spend time with friends and family when we get a chance, I hope we get to continue to see friendly faces as we continue our travels.

  1. Having family come visit is always special! We’ve actually had quite a bit of friends visit. Some multiple times and we’ve all had such fun! Some people don’t like visitors, but we love it! What a great time in Glacier! Lucky you saw a moose.

    1. It was great! And we have seen lots of moose (one once surprised me on a run!), but this was the first time I’d seen a mom and baby pair. That was pretty neat.
