Well if you are passing through Missoula. I have CP available. 30A at the curb. Ok 30A at the curb by the end of tomorrow. The conduit is run, the box is installed and I have the wire.
Almost anywhere in Montana is beautiful. Philipsburg, Georgetown lake. Yellowstone. Glacier.....

We were in Glacier about a month ago. Stayed at West Glacier KOA and as said above, it was convenient. Allow a full day to take the 50 mile road trip on the Going to the Sun Highway. Great scenery and wildlife.

The park service is serious about this restriction . . . it was interesting with my '75 Cadillac Eldorado by itself at 19 feet when we traveled by car rather than Big Red Bus -- it was worth some of the amusement park frights just to have the experience of the fully open convertible.

Fortunately, the Big Red Bus drivers have all been well-trained in maneuvering the tight confines of Going to the Sun Highway -- the buses are actually close to one foot too long for the road according the advisory.

Last year after the Bozeman international, we went to Glacier and stayed at the Apgar campground inside the west entrance to the park. The NPS has a free shuttle service from Apgar to Lake Saint Mary. It is a van from Apgar to the divide and a full size bus from the divide to Lake Saint Mary. If you go all the way, plan for a full day as well as weather changes, it rained at the divide on our trip.

We're in Columbia Falls, only 20 minutes away from the West Glacier entrance. GNP is in our backyard, and our favorite weekend hangout. While we've camped on the East side, we tend to frequent the West side campgrounds, Apgar and Fish Creek.

My best piece of advice is to check the nps website to check campground availability. Fill up days are slowing down now, but some campgrounds close after labor day.

And if you choose to stay on the East side, be sure to visit the Two Sisters cafe near Babb (best pies in the state).

Good luck and safe travels!

We were just at Glacier a few weeks ago. We had an amazing time! The best hike we did was to Hidden Lake up at Logan was quite possibly the best hike I have ever done. We stayed at San-Suz-Ed park - it was nice and convenient to the park. (And, served homemade belgian waffles in the morning!) The free shuttles are great and an easier way to do the Going to the Sun Road.

After Glacier, we went to Bozeman, a great little town with a lot of recreation activites in the area. The Gallatin National Forest offers amazing scenery - it was an incredible drive.

This was my first time to Montana and it exceeded my expectations. Quite a beautiful state and I can't wait to return!

Have a wonderful time!
