This place is very basic and a bit out of your way but it was our favourite place in Alberta when we lived there.

I just returned from East Glacier and Waterton provincial park a couple of days ago. Fortunately for me it's my "backyard".
You've been given some great info so far....especially concerning "border crossings" etc. I repeat they are not open 24 hrs.
September is a great time to visit these parks but don't wait too long as "weather can and will" alter park access if you wait too long. Plus I can't overstate if you are a "hiker" or "bike rider" the necessity of having "bear spray" properly worn on your person....not one can for all but "one can" for each! Sadly, we just lost a National Forest Ranger to a Grizzly who apparently "blindsided" him while riding his bike in very familiar territory...just outside of GNP.

A good alternative campground on the east side of GNP is "Johnston's RV Park". It is located in St. Mary's, Mt. They also have a restaurant on the premises but I didn't use it. Met some great people however.

Enjoy

Pat

Be sure to check the park on-line calendars to make sure you can do what you want to do. Portions of Glacier NP close up early, after Labour Day.

This page is really helpful: https://home.nps.gov/applications/gl...s/cgstatus.cfm

If you're going to Glacier and Banff, think about Waterton Lakes NP in Alberta, as well.

We've camped at both Fish Creek and St. Mary in the park, which are fairly standard Park Service sites: no hook ups, parking pad, picnic table, fire ring. We've also stayed at the commercial Glacier Campground in West Glacier. Not luxurious, but nice vegetation screening between sites.

If the road is still open, we really recommend the drive up to Bowman and Kintla Lakes. This is a rough road, but the scenery is super and you lose most of the other people.
