Glacier National Park

Trip Planner USA  /  Montana  /  Glacier National Park

Crown of the Continent

The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests. Many visitors take all of this in along the 1,125 km (700 mi) of hiking trails or via the park's main road that traverses 80.5 km (50 mi) of wilderness. The park is home to white mountain goats, bighorn sheep, moose, elk, and rare grizzly bears and wolves. Bald eagles, golden eagles, peregrine falcons, and osprey roam the skies above, while westslope cutthroat trout, mountain whitefish, Kokanee salmon, northern pike, and Arctic grayling navigate the waterways. This diverse ecosystem serves as a mecca for hiking, biking, backcountry camping, cross-country skiing, boating, and fishing, making Glacier National Park an exciting attraction year-round. Glacier National Park is in Montana (MT). Plan your tour of Glacier National Park and United States travel itinerary using our United States online vacation builder .

Where to stay in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park offers a wealth of accommodation options right inside the park. You can stake a tent in one of theĀ campgrounds or choose from a handful of rustic lodges and chalets. Rooms fill up quickly at these, so make reservations as far in advance as possible (up to a year ahead). A few inns, motels, and lodges sit around the St. Mary's Lakes by the park's northeast boundary, but staying in Whitefish on the western side is a better choice if you prefer to be in a Montana mountain town. Here you'll find homey inns and lodges, economy motels, and a wide range of restaurants. You'll find additional inns and motels as you drive east along Route 2 toward the park's entrance.
