Campground hosts at Glacier National Park


Kay and Al Aguilar of Pueblo, Colorado, are in their 6th year as campground hosts at the Apgar Campground near the west entrance of Glacier National Park.

Kay, a retired physical education college professor, and Al, a former manager of a men’s clothing store, began tent camping in 1982.  “But,” said Kay, “I was not a happy camper when the tent got wet.” During one rainy camping trip in 1990 Kay saw a little motorhome roll by.

“I pointed at it and said: ‘I want one of those,'” said Kay. Within a year, the Aguilars were camping in a 1990 Winnebago Warrior built on a Toyota chassis. “That rig was like a Swiss Army Knife. I wish they still made them.”

Today the Aguilars drive a 2004 32-foot Fleetwood Southwind. During the winters they volunteer with the Habitat for Humanity Care-A-Vanners working in Alice, Texas. “They are a small affiliate and wonderful people,” said Kay.
