Took advantage of the new reservation system for Many Glacier and got a site for August. We also reserved a site at Fish Creek Campground on the west side. We are traveling with my inlaws in their 31ft class C so we figured for their first time we'd reserve sites so we can be close together.

We are staying at St Mary for two nights before heading to Many Glacier for 5 nights then over to Fish Creek for 4 nights then its back home.

Only 6 months to wait!

Another vote here for West Glacier KOA. It's outrageously expensive, but a very nice clean place to camp with easy access to the west entrance. The campground is level, quiet, and well maintained, though most sites will not have trees / shade. Their neighbors have horses which seem friendly and are fun to watch as they stroll through the trees on that property.

Also, if you want to ride those old-timely buses into the park, we saw them come out to the campground to make pick-ups and drop-offs. Again, this is a $$$ activity, but it might suit your fancy.

Next time, though, we'll try to stay inside the park - even without hookups.

The Red Bus tours are highly recommended. We took the Many Glacier to Lake McDonald tour in 2011. The weather was perfect, the top was down. The driver, Evelyn, who had been driving these buses for over 10 years was a wealth in Glacier stories, history and facts. It's the only way to drive the Going to the Sun.

Last time we were at Glacier, we rode our bikes up from the west side as far the Birdwoman Falls overlook. Beyond there, the road was still closed for clearing of snow. This was just a couple of days before they opened up the road to vehicles. It was a really great experience, highly recommended for those who can do so - just amazing.

St. Mary CG may still be shut down as result of major fire event last summer.

Also, don't plan on using Logan Pass road to get from West side to East side or back pulling a trailer.

Very narrow and tight switchbacks. Plan on taking State Road around south end of park if pulling your rig.

Have a really good time!

I just checked the campground status http://home.nps.gov/applications/gla...s/cgstatus.cfm and it shows the Apgar and St. Mary CGs as open for winter camping-- not sure when the others open in late spring/early summer but dates may depend on the snow melting. We camped in St. Mary last year around Labour Day and the fires weren't in the immediate area. However, part of our loop was closed due to bear activity.

The NPS shuttle on Going-To-The-Sun road is free, and starts operating on July 1. http://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/shuttles.htm We would sure recommend it during the high season, as we've been at Logan Pass when every parking space was full, so we couldn't get out and tour the visitor center. Trailers cannot be towed over much of Going-To-The-Sun Road due to the 21-foot total vehicle restriction, but Highway 2, which, abuts the southern end of the park and links East and West Glacier is an easy and pleasant drive.
