Update Regarding Glacier National Park


This summer Glacier National Park will be instituting updates to their ticketed entry system and we at Glacier Getaways wanted to make sure to provide you with the most up-to-date information for our guests in planning your trip to Whitefish  & the Flathead Valley this summer. If you are planning to be traveling from West Glacier on the Going-to-the-Sun Road corridor between Glacier National Park’s West from May 24 to September 8, 2024, you will need to create a reservation in addition to a Park Pass for 6am-3pm. Many Glacier entrance requires a reservation from July 1 through September 8, 2024 for 6am-3pm.  The North Fork area requires a reservation from May 24 through September 8, 2024 for 6am-3pm.  No tickets are required to enter through the St. Mary’s entrance. Entry reservation tickets can be secured at recreation.gov website. There will be two opportunities to reserve your ticket:

The ticketed entry system will help with traffic flow and congestion, creating a more enjoyable experience for everyone. Visitors entering after 3 pm do not need a reservation. Access to these areas may be temporarily limited during times of peak visitation. Visitors with reservations for in-park lodging, camping, wilderness camping, boat rides, guided hikes, horseback rides, bus tours, or park shuttles along the Going-to-the-Sun Road do not need to reserve an online entry reservation ticket for the day of your reservation. An entry reservation ticket for the day is included in your service reservation. The included entry reservation applies only to the dates of your service reservation. Proof of a service reservation (e.g., lodging, tours, etc.) is required and will serve as your entry reservation ticket. For more information, visit the National Park Service website.
