Glacier NP status

Currently entire east side of park closed - probably for the season (2020) - including Many Glaciers and all NP campgrounds on east side. GTTS road was not open 4 days ago and told it may be several more weeks - COVID and late snow. Long line of cars coming in west entrance and just making U-turn as no parking in the park - could only go to Apgar village if parking available.

Really hard to glean information from NPS site...

We too were in NW Montana last week, not with our Airstream but with our Harleys. Did our paths cross at a gas station pump? I gave a thumbs up and said "hi" to a couple with a truck/Airstream set up that looked like yours....(I know, a silver truck w/silver Airstream = pretty common!)

We were also told the east side of the park was completely closed due to it being part of the Indian reservation and Covid and the snow amounts.

We did speak to some folks in Whitefish that had gone into the park 7/3 (in the rain) and they were able to enter on the west side an go on the road to the sun - but only to Avalanche Creek where they had to turn around. We tried to go on 7/4 very early in the morning to do the same - and were hopeful as they were letting people in the gate for free. But we were only able to go about 2-3 miles and were turned around at the base of Lake MacDonald & the Apgar Visitor Center as the "park was already full for the day". They said they would let people in as people left but it would be a 3-4 hour wait & you would just have to chance your timing. Pretty disappointed...no wonder they let us in for free! What we did see was gorgeous - we'll be back!

May not have been us. We have a 'Magnetic' F250 (more dark grey than silver). Also, we have green/white and red/white kayaks on top! Really a shame about GTTS. Our first time to Glacier (stayed at Glacier Meadow RV which was nice) but couldn't do many of the things we hoped to, although biking and hiking into and near Great Bear Wilderness was good.

Oh well, probably not then... but I would have greeted you the same way!

Yeah, us too. Weíve been to Montana several times...but usually just passing through. This time it was our destination. Oh well, got in a couple of nice rides between thunderstorms!

Travel safe!

I'm in Fort Benton, Montana. AFAIK, east Glacier NP is still closed, as is the Canadian Border. Sigh...
