Update Regarding Glacier National Park

UPDATE REGARDING GLACIER NATIONAL PARK’S TICKETED ENTRY POLICY- Summer 2021

This summer Glacier National Park will be instituting a new ticketed entry system and we at Glacier Getaways wanted to make sure to provide you with the most up-to date information to our guest 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 and St. Mary Entrances from May 28 to September 6, 2021, you will need to create a reservation in addition to a Park Pass. Entry reservation tickets can be secured at recreation.gov website beginning at 6 a.m. MDT on April 29, 2021. The ticketed entry system will help with traffic flow and congestion, creating a more enjoyable experience for everyone. Approximately 2/3 of the entry reservation tickets will be available up to 60 days in advance with the remaining 1/3 of entry reservation tickets being released two days in advance. Prior to the full opening of the Going-to-the-Sun Road there will be fewer tickets available each day. Visitors entering the park at Many Glacier, Two Medicine, Polebridge, or along Highway 2 do not need an online entry reservation ticket. 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 ticketFor more information, visit the National Park Service website.
