      We are driving from Yellowstone to Glacier towing a 20 ft travel trailer. We are concerned as to the elevation and the roads going up. Looks like we will be taking 15 to Helena and 287 to 89.

      Camp in Many Glacier or St. Mary's campground?

      by jennyzichterman Online Now Dec 29, 2013 at 5:27 PM

      We are planning a week-long visit to Glacier in July of 2014. We will spend 3 nights at Fish Creek and then 4 nights on the east side of the park. We would love to stay in Many Glacier CG but arriving early with our gear and kids could be difficult. Is it worth the extra effort to stay in Many Glacier or is a reservable site in St Mary's CG nearly as good?

      Going to Glacier in early May. I understand that everything may not be full swing, but what would be the closest city to the park that has bars and restaurants that are open. Any hotel suggestions by name would be much appreciated.

      Thanks, Rick

      Sperry Chalet and Granite Park Chalet

      by redbikegirl Online Now Oct 22, 2013 at 5:38 AM

      Sperry Chalet and Granite Park Chalet will start taking reservations on Monday, October 28th. Both Chalets fill up quickly so if you're planning on visiting Glacier next year and considered hiking and staying at one of these historic chalets, make reservations soon. We've stayed overnight at Sperry and hiked to Granite Park Chalet and both are well worth the visit.

We're looking to spend 5 days and 4 nights (could be flexible) around the first week of June. Any advice would be great as we're just starting to research for the trip.

    • Group with Campers and Kids

      by scotpettit Online Now Sep 20, 2013 at 10:06 PM

      We are planning a trip for next summer from Seattle. There are 3 groups with med to small trailers and several kids. It will be our first visit to Glacier. What is the best campground for trailers and kids when coming from the west; preferably one which takes reservations. Our thought is to stay there a few nights and explore the park. We have more time, are there other areas of Montana good to explore? Our last stop will be Farragut State Park so something in between would be nice.

    • Camping at seasonally closed campgrounds?

      by bikecamper888 Online Now Sep 5, 2013 at 1:18 PM

      Has anyone had experiences with camping at campgrounds in Glacier that are closed seasonally? My partner and I are going there next week, and a couple of the places we'd planned to go (Avalanche, Rising Sun) will be closed for the season. We'll be on bicycles, so getting around barriers won't be a problem. We're also prepared for bears. But are campgrounds regularly checked by park staff? Thanks!

      Spending 2 days in the park first of September. Want to make the most of our time. We want to drive across GTTS Rd and take time to stop at views along the way, plus do a couple of nice hikes.

    • Staying by the West Entrance and need suggestions for good Hiking trails... HELP!!!

      My husband and I are visiting Glacier National Park from July 11 - July 13th. We are average hikers and would like suggestions for our 3 day itinerary. From what I've read thus far, good hiking trails are on the East entrance however we are staying at West Entrance. I am looking for a short hike (~5-7 Miles) and a long hike (~ 10-13 Miles) closer to the West Entrance. Also if you have suggestions for Must see, please let me know as well as how far they would be from West Entrance. I appreciate all your suggestion and help in making our stay at Glacier National Park memorable one! Thank you!!

    • First Time To GNP Early Sept. 2013

      by hollyworld33 Online Now Jun 12, 2013 at 11:16 AM

      My husband and I are flying in from South Carolina to Spokane renting a car and driving to GNP arriving Friday Sept 6. and will fly out of Spokane home the following Saturday. Right now we have reservations at Glacier Campground in a camper cabin (west Glacier) for the entire stay. My question, should we plan to stay maybe 1 night in East Glacier or is the drive back and forth reasonable? We plan to see as much as possible and try to hike at least some almost every day. Most will probably be shorter hikes and we may try part of Highline Trail but not the whole thing. So I guess I am just not sure about driving back and forth multiple times in a week is doable?? Thanks for any suggestions.

    • One night backcountry hike. Is this possible?

      by ThePlaceWhere Online Now Apr 22, 2013 at 6:25 PM

      We want to take the Highline Trail to site GRN(Granite Park) then the next morning take Swiftcurrent Pass to Many Glacier.

      1) Am I reading the map right that the Swiftcurrent Pass trailhead is right at Many Glacier?
      2) Can we leave our car at Logan Pass or Many Glacier and shuttle to one or the other?
      3) Is it better to start at Logan Pass or Many Glacier? (It looks like they are the same distance to GRN)

      We are going mid-August and plan to spend two nights in Glacier NP. We want to do this backcountry camping one night and spend one night in Many Glacier campground, but I've heard some horror stories about finding a site there (We work at Disney and the last thing we want to deal with is crazy pushy tourists). Should I just avoid camping there? Also what is a good runner up? (We are tent/hammock camping)

    • Visiting GNP for 2-days. which area to stay?

      by am95405 Online Now Jun 20, 2012 at 7:16 AM

      We're a family of four (2 kids, ages 8 and 10). We'll be visiting GNP around the 4th of July and trying to decide where to spend 3 nights. we're driving up from Yellowstone.

      Stay in Kalispell? stay in the park? which area? it seems so big.

      If it helps, after our stay, we'll be driving back towards California (going west).

      There seems to be a lot of options.

      I'd like to keep the per night price under200, but will splurge if really worth it.
