Snow conditions are delaying the opening of the Two Medicine Campground on the east side of Glacier National Park.
A few feet of remaining snow are still covering most of the Two Medicine camping sites and access to facilities is limited. The campground is anticipated to open by June 6, or as conditions allow, according to Glacier Park Spokesperson Denise Germann.
The Many Glacier Campground will open Friday, May 30, in primitive status with 55 sites available starting at noon. The St. Mary Campground is open with services.
At this time, water is not available at the Many Glacier Campground, and only pit toilets will be available. Water may be available over the weekend, but campers should be prepared and arrive with water. The campground fee is $20 per night, but if water is unavailable the fee will be $10 per night.
At the St. Mary Campground, there are approximately 50 sites available. Potable water and flush toilets are available, and the nightly fee is $20. Beginning June 1, the St. Mary Campground will be available by reservation through the National Recreation Reservation System or by calling 1-877-444-6777. The nightly fee will be $23 per night.
There is no hiker-biker access on the east side of the Going-to-the-Sun Road at this time due to road rehabilitation work. Hikers and bikers will have unrestricted access on the west side of the Going-to-the-Sun Road this weekend.
On the west side of the park, the Apgar Campground is open with services. The nightly fee is $20. The Fish Creek Campground will open June 1 and sites are available through the National Recreation Reservation System or by calling 1-877-444-6777. The nightly fee is $23 per night.
