Best route to Glacier from Banff  (7 Answers)

In mid to late June, we're going to visit Banff & Jasper first, then drive to Glacier. What are the pros & cons of the west route (via 95/93 to Kalispell) versus the eastern approach (via 2/89 to St. Marys)? Since we will have multiple days in the area, I'm more interested in thoughts about the scenery on the routes and road conditions rather than where to stay and what to see once we are at the park.
Thanks.

Driving from Seattle to Glacier National Park in June  (7 Answers)

I'm planning a 5 day trip from Seattle to West side of GNP. Can someone please help with answers to the following queries,

1) Is driving from Seattle to GNP safe in early June. Would all the roads be open? What type of vehicle should i rent? Would a normal 2 wheel sedan be ok?
2) I'm planning to stay in Kallispell and drive to West side for day trips and come back to base. Any suggestions if this is a good idea?
3) My father who is 70 years old is accompanying me so hiking is ruled out. Any suggestions on what can we cover by road and any must see locations?

Thanks

Regards

Camp in Many Glacier or St. Mary's campground?  (2 Answers)

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?

Thanks!

Sperry Chalet and Granite Park Chalet  (3 Answers)

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.

Group with Campers and Kids  (2 Answers)

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?  (6 Answers)

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!
