Glacier National Park

Jump to last reply

Planning to drive from Portland, OR to see Glacier National Park this August. Will be traveling with three kids. Was wondering if anyone could give me input on our itinerary.

At the park:

Stay in West Glacier and spend the next day driving the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Stopping to take short hikes (kids are ages 17, 13, 4) and to take pictures.

Stay in St. Mary's.

Drive to see Many Glaciers area.

Spend the night in St. Mary's again.

Drive back down through the park to West Glacier and spend the night there before heading back to Oregon.

I know many people recommend staying in Many Glaciers area, but I have also read that the lodge is very rustic. I know myself and my family, and we all need a good night's sleep to function well. Is the driving back and forth to St. Mary's truly too much? (We were planning to do VRBO.) We stayed outside of the park when we visited Yosemite and did not mind all of the driving.

Also, I was wondering if anyone had ideas for things to see along the way from Oregon. We are relatively new to the West Coast. I read about the bison preserve near Moises on
this website and wanted to stop there. Thanks!
