Glacier National Park: An Overview

Residing in northern Montana, straddling the continental divide on the United States – Canada border, Glacier National Park covers more than 1 million acres of rugged mountain terrain, featuring ancient glaciers, rushing rivers, gorgeous crystal-clear lakes, and a number of diverse ecosystems.

With more than 700 miles of hiking trails and the chance to see bighorn sheep, elk, moose, American black bears, grizzly bears, and innumerable other animal species, Glacier National Park is a gigantic playground for outdoor enthusiasts.

Glacier National Park in winterPin

The park’s primary thoroughfare, usually open from early June through early October, the Going-to-the-Sun Road crosses Glacier National Park from West Glacier (in the west), over the Continental Divide at Logan Pass, to St. Mary’s Visitor Center (in the east), and vice versa.

An engineering marvel that took 2 decades to construct, the Going-to-the-Sun Road, or “Sun Road,” as it’s affectionately known, provides easy access to Lake McDonald, Saint Mary Lake, as well as many other famous sights and notable hikes within Glacier National Park.

It takes about 2 hours to traverse the entire “Sun Road” if you drive straight through. However, you’ll definitely want to make multiple stops along the scenic drive to savor the remarkable natural beauty and unique outdoor activities that are abundant here.

So, lace up your hiking boots, grab the fam, and get ready to be in awe as you enjoy the amazing experiences that await in Glacier National Park.

Glacier National Park: Entrances

The massive Glacier National Park offers 7 visitor entrances, 3 of which link up with the Going-to-the-Sun Road, while the remaining 4 provide access to some more far-flung sections of the park.

The 7 Glacier National Park entrances:
  • West Glacier Entrance – The park’s de facto main entrance puts you directly on the Going-to-the-Sun Road (Located near the town of West Glacier)
  • St. Mary Entrance – The park’s most popular east entrance provides direct access to the Going-to-the-Sun Road (Located near the St. Mary Village)
  • Camas Creek Entrance – A more remote western access point, this gate links up with the Going-to-the-Sun Road via Camas Road (Located near Forests and Fire Nature Trail)
  • Polebridge Entrance – A remote western access point that requires driving on gravel roads to access far-off sections of the park (Located near Polebridge Mercantile & Bakery)
  • Two Medicine Entrance – A remote eastern entrance providing easy access to several alpine lakes (Located near Lower Two Medicine Lake)
  • Many Glacier Entrance – A relatively remote eastern entrance offering easy access to several pristine lakes (Located on Rte 3 near Lake Shelburne)
  • Cut Bank Entrance – The lowest trafficked entrance (eastern side), requires dirt road driving, with easy access to backcountry campgrounds (approx 20 miles north of Browning, MT)

Most park visitors stick to the West Glacier Entrance and the St. Mary Entrance. However, for the more intrepid travelers, other entrances can get you right up close to some more “off the beaten path” spots and some of the best places to stay inside Glacier National Park.

Where To Stay To See Glacier National Park: Lodging Options INSIDE The Park

When my family and I are planning where to stay on our national park excursions, we almost always opt for accommodations within the park. This cuts down on travel time and allows us to see far more sights than we would otherwise.

For us, this is especially true when considering where to stay to see Glacier National Park because the park is so darn huge!

If you’d like to camp, several campgrounds, such as Fish Creek Campground and Avalanche Campground, are maintained by the NPS inside Glacier National Park. However, I’ll be focusing solely on Glacier National Park lodging here.

With that, here are my recommendations for where to stay in Glacier National Park:

driving in Glacier National ParkPin

1. Apgar Village Lodge & Cabins

Nearest Entrance: West Glacier Entrance

Address: Lake View Dr, West Glacier, MT 59936, United States

Accommodates: 6 guests

Nestled among the conifer trees on the southern shores of Glacier National Park’s largest body of water, Lake McDonald, Apgar Village Lodge & Cabins provides 28 cabins and 20 motel-style rooms in a marvelously picturesque setting.

Plus, you’ll be just a stone’s throw from the Going-to-the-Sun Road and many of the park’s most popular natural wonders, as well as hiking trails.

Rent a bike on-site and explore the nearby area on your new wheels. Afterward, swing by Eddie’s Cafe & Gifts for a nice meal, a lovely coffee, a delicious slice of pie, your choice of cocktails, or some Glacier National Park souvenirs.

Don’t feel like cycling? There are also boat rentals available here, allowing your family to spend the day gliding over the beautiful tranquil waters of Lake McDonald as you gaze upon the splendid snow-capped mountains jutting out of the earth’s surface everywhere you look.

Family cabins situated directly on Lake McDonald and the adjacent McDonald Creek contain 2 queen beds, a sofa bed, a kitchenette, and a private bathroom. Smaller families can opt for motel rooms with 2 queen beds.

Rustic and quaint, Apgar Village Lodge & Cabins is a throwback to a bygone era. You won’t find many televisions here, and the WiFi can be spotty at times, but that’s what family national park trips are all about, am I right?

2. Lake McDonald Lodge

Nearest Entrance: West Glacier Entrance

Address: 288 Lake McDonald Ldg Lp, West Glacier, MT 59936, United States

Accommodates: 4 guests

Situated directly on the Going-to-the-Sun Road toward the northeastern end of Lake McDonald, this Swiss-style chalet will give you classic European ski resort vibes, just transplanted into the North American heartland.

Lake McDonald Lodge

Constructed in 1913 and renovated in 2015, the historic lodge provides 82 guest rooms spread across the main lodge building, the nearby Snyder Hall and Cobb House, and a separate row of cabins just a short walk away.

Book one of the iconic Red Bus Tours here, a staple of Glacier National Park travel for decades, where you’re taken by experienced glacier guides in your vintage bus on a scenic drive through some of the park’s most iconic sections, learning about the area’s ecology and history as you go.

When you finish up the tour, head back to the lodge to grab a bite to eat at Russell’s Fireside Dining Room, Luke’s Lounge, or Jammer Joe’s Grill and Pizzeria, or drop into the general store to pick up some snacks. There’s also a great coffee shop in the lodge.

You can schedule lake cruises, horseback riding, ranger programs, and other on-site activities, all great for kids.

Families can go for the Deluxe Cabin option, which comes equipped with a king or queen bed plus a sleeper sofa. But book early because the larger cabins are limited and sell out quickly in high season.

3. Many Glacier Hotel

Accommodates: 5 guests

A historic hotel designed and built by the Great Northern Railway in the early 20th century, Many Glacier Hotel sits on the shores of Swiftcurrent Lake in the northeastern portion of Glacier National Park.

Nearest Entrance: West Glacier Entrance

It could be the perfect setting for a Norman Rockwell painting with its classic Americana charm.

Step out of your motor inn room and kick back as you take in views of Lake McDonald and the stunning mountains ringing its shores.

The amenities, as far as restaurants and stores, are limited on the property. However, you’ll be just a short drive or walk from everything you need, as there’s a gift shop nearby, and the West Glacier Entrance is only a few minutes down the road.

7. Motel Lake McDonald

Nearest Entrance: West Glacier Entrance

Address: 466 Lake McDonald Loop, West Glacier, MT 59936, United States

One of the more budget-friendly options inside Glacier National Park, Motel Lake McDonald offers simple but comfortable rooms surrounded by lush pine forests with views of the nearby mountains.

The “no frills” property supplies you with a standard motel-style room with your choice of either 1 double bed or 2 double beds. All rooms have a private bathroom, telephone, ironing board, hairdryer, and fan upon request.

The simple lodge is one of the best options if you’re looking for a 1-night comfortable stay while passing through the Going-to-the-Sun Road and looking to hold onto a few more of your hard-earned dollars.

If you get hungry, just take the short walk over to Lake McDonald Lodge, where you’ll find several restaurants, including the family-friendly Jammer Joe’s Grill and Pizzeria.

8. Sperry Chalet

Nearest Entrance: West Glacier Entrance

Address: Gunsight Pass Trail, West Glacier, MT 59936, United States

Accommodates: 5 guests

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and one of the most storied backcountry chalets in the world, Sperry Chalet is a great choice for experienced hiking families. Sadly, the main building at Sperry Chalet was lost in the Sprague fire in 2017, but the property has since re-opened.

Forget about taking the car here. The only way to reach this historic hotel in Glacier’s backcountry is to “hoof it” over the rocky mountainsides up to this idyllic hillside lookout. (You can also reach the chalet via horse) .

From Lake McDonald Lodge, the Sperry Trail is 6.7 miles long with a 3300 ft. ascent to the chalet.

The hotel’s main lodge utilizes 2 stories to provide dorm-style accommodations, with private rooms that can house as many as 5 guests. There’s also a nearby building containing a kitchen and dining area, where they serve 3 meals a day, and a separate structure with shared bathrooms.

There’s also a campground here, if you decide to rough it.

The simple but mesmerizingly beautiful accommodations offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for intrepid travelers seeking a little adventure.

If you have older kids who are experienced hikers, the Sperry Chalet could be an interesting, even amazing, albeit challenging, place to stay for your family trip to Glacier National Park.

My family hasn’t tried this trek yet, but my kids are now at the age that I’d like to make reservations and try this in the next couple of years for sure!

Where To Stay To See Glacier National Park: Best Lodging OUTSIDE The Park

While, I’d generally recommend staying inside a national park, especially a large national park like Glacier. There are plenty of great family-friendly places to stay in the nearby towns, just a short drive away, too.

Here are my recommendations for where to stay to see Glacier National Park outside the park’s limits:

9. Prince of Wales Hotel

Nearest Entrance:

Address: Alberta 5, Waterton Park, AB, Canada ,T0K 2M0

Accommodates: 4 guests

No list of Glacier NP lodging would be complete without the Prince of Wales Hotel. Located across the Canadian border in the province of Alberta, town of Waterton, this historic hotel (built in 1927) is a titan. Regal and majestic, situated on a high bluff, this resort embraces its royal name certainly.

US citizens will need a passport to cross the border. The drive from the park to Waterton is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes, and gorgeous the entire way.

exterior of Prince of Wales Hotel WatertonPin

The hotel continues to draw on its historic routes in a variety of ways, from the men on staff clad in kilts to the Prohibition-vintage cocktails…this hotel is glitzy and glamorous, but still maintains a casual national park feel.

There are rooms that will accommodate a family of four, but larger families may need to book multiple rooms.

double bed room Prince of Wales HotelPin

The rates here are loftier as compared to many other options on this list, but it also aims to be a much more posh type of lodging option than many of the more rustic places inside, and near the park.

Nicknamed “The Big Tree Lodge” by the local Blackfeet people, the Glacier Park Lodge was built with massive Douglas fir trees by the Great Northern Railway to serve as a luxurious place for Glacier National Park visitors to stay.

The main lodge is something to behold as it still maintains the original massive wood pillars and traditional charm it’s had since it was first opened in 1915.
