Glacier National Park proposed an increase to the fees at Many Glacier Campground and a reservation system for some campsites. The changes will provide an opportunity for visitors to plan their trip to Many Glacier with knowledge of a secured campsite. Public comments are encouraged.
The proposed changes will increase the nightly camping fee from $20 to $23 per campsite, and allow for site-specific reservations at approximately half of the campsites, while the other half of the campground would remain first-come, first-served. The increase in fees would off-set the service charge of the reservation service provider and would be applied to the entire campground. It is proposed that the new fees and opportunity to reserve a campsite would begin next summer, June 2014.
Currently, the Many Glacier Campground is managed as a completely first-come first-served campground. The campground is popular, filling every day in the summer by mid-to-late morning. There are 110 campsites and 13 sites can accommodate RVs 35-feet in length. All campsites are first-come, first-serve.
Two campgrounds at Glacier National Park, St. Mary and Fish Creek Campgrounds, have reservations available with a nightly fee of $23.
Public comments on this proposal should be submitted by March 6, 2013. Comments may be submitted online or mail to Glacier National Park, Attention: Many Glacier Campground Fee Rate Increase, PO Box 128, West Glacier, MT 59936.
