Re: No Reservation - Best First Come Sites?

This link tells you the fill times of each of the campgrounds...though they aren't totally accurate. If you click on each campground it will show you historical fill times for every month the last several years... https://home.nps.gov/applications/glac/cgstatus/cgstatus.cfm For instance at Many Glac...

Re: Glacier shatters June attendance record

I have been watching the campground fill times from the NPS website. What else would one do when it is only 43 days until your trip to Glacier? It really is remarkable how much faster campgrounds are filling this year; every campground except those in the North Fork were filled before 11AM yesterday...

Re: Who wants to play "Name that Trail"?

Yes, I hiked Jackson Overlook to Piegan Pass on the last day of one of my trips because the road was closed from Jackson Overlook to Logan Pass for snow. It is definitely more a difficult route than Siyeh Bend starting point; the "up" starts right at Jackson Overlook and is pretty steady to the junc...

Re: Buying a Shower?

Never mind; I think I just answered my own question; it seems that Fish Creek Campground closes on 9/3.

Re: When to book in park lodging for June 2018?

I always overbook, sometimes with reservations the same night in different parts of the park until my plans become final. Then I cancel the ones that I don't want. It is a small fee to cancel, well worth it. You don't want reservations to be booked once you finalize a plan. Also, June isn't the best...
