Glacier National Park - which week in Sept and where to stay?

Jump to last reply

My husband and are are planning a trip to Idaho and Montana. We are staying one week at a ranch in Idaho and we will also add three or four days on to see GNP. The plan is to fly into Kalispell, go to GNP and then onto Idaho - eventualy departing from Spokane.
Right now we are looking at either Sept 4th (right after Labor Day) or Sept 11th for our GNP arrival day. I know that one week probably won't make a difference, although it did when we went to Rocky Mountain NP a few years ago and had six inches of snow on the ground in early Sept, but I thought I would see if anyone had any thoughts either way. We are also debating where to stay. I work for a hotel company, and we can get a room for a very low rate at the Hampton Inn in Kalispell, but I am not sure that is the best location. Would Whitefish or some other location work better for park access and a better "town feel"? We also like to walk around at night, go for coffee, window shop, etc. Thanks for any input!
