Here’s What to Expect in Glacier National Park This Spring
Plan Ahead and Know Before you Go

To enhance Western Montana’s visitor experience, Glacier National Park has announced it will once again implement a vehicle reservation system for the 2022 peak season, May 27 through September 11. When entering during that time (and in addition to a regular park pass) you will need a vehicle reservation for both the Going-to-the-Sun Road (GTSR) corridor and the North Fork corridor. These are two separate reservations. Vehicle reservations are available now on a rolling window. Beginning May 26, additional vehicle reservations will also be made available the day before the effective date. Vehicle reservations must be purchased online at in advance or by contacting the call center at 877.444.6777 (toll-free), 606.515.6777 (international) or 877.833.6777 (TDD).

Please also note that Apgar and Sprague Creek campgrounds will require reservations during peak season. Plan ahead by making reservations well in advance and have a backup plan in place if you are not able to secure a spot.

The fare-free park shuttle will be running this year and reservations are not needed, though service is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Spring vs. Summer:
The Season to Visit

Spring is arguably the best time to visit Western Montana’s Glacier Country. During our quiet season, you’ll not only find shoulder-season prices and less crowds, but unique sights and adventures like cherry blossoms along Flathead Lake, biking the Going-to-the-Sun Road before it opens to vehicles, baby animals at the Bison Range, excellent temps for hiking and biking, epic whitewater rafting and rushing waterfalls. Bonus: It’s easier to rent a car and find lodging in the spring than it is in the summer.
