Review is more of the park itself. I couldn’t find review for park itself. Montana will bring you to calm peace. The nature around you will captivate you in ways you never thought. A lot of trees were down in may from the outgoing winter but still a view you won’t forget
This is a review only about camping in the backcountry in Glacier NP. Due to Covid, right now you can get backcountry permits only at Apgar Village, and it's a first-come, first-served basis. People line up as early as 4am--even though the permit center doesn't open until 8am--so if you want a certain campsite, go early. If you don't really care and are happy to hike and camp anywhere, going later in the day should be fine as well. (We turned up around 10 or 11am and there were still plenty of sites available). Permits for backcountry camping are $7 per person, per night. Campsites in the backcountry have pit toilets, food prep areas, and designated tent areas. Many are right near a lake as well. Wildlife abounds in Glacier, so always be sure when you're camping in the backcountry to hang your food as soon as you get to camp, and carry bear spray.…
This was a Tauck Tour. The itinerary was fantastic, our guide was amazing, and the scenery beyond description. We stayed in first class accommodations. Our guide and driver had worked together for several years, so they knew when to stop to get the best, least crowded views of the mountains or glaciers. We had a great driver, really fun low key personality, and highly skilled driver. If you are thinking about doing this tour, don’t think too much......just go. It is the greatest.
Clean and a wonderful view of the lake. Restrooms were nice and it was sooo quiet at night. Didn’t see much for wildlife in the campground. Hiking trails were great and everything is so natural. If a tree falls, they leave it!
I LOVE Rising Sun Campground - I loved the campground host and the different learning opportunities they had going on nightly in the campground - Highly recommend the ranger talks. I consider myself an outdoors person & even I learned a lot from the ranger talks from plants, geology, Native history...all interesting $20/night for amazing views, campstore walking distance away inside the Rising Sun Motor Inn - this is also where you shower after buying tokens in the camp store - Shuttle pickups here and walking distance to the St.Mary boat tour as well (just across the road)
