Glacier Park Itinerary Help - 4 day trip in July

Jump to last reply

Greetings - I've heard many great things about Glacier Park so I just booked my air travel to spend 4 nights in early July (that's as long as we can get away at the moment).

I know I'm a bit late in booking things this season but I did check and there is still sporadic lodging capacity. Worst case scenario we could easily stay in Kalispell the whole time and drive to/from. A bonus with this idea is that I have tons of points stored away with the popular hotel chains so I can take advantage of those to keep this trip under budget. (Kalispell has Hiltons, Holiday Inns, etc)

My wife and I are active, in our mid twenties, and looking forward to some scenic drives, hikes, maybe some rafting if it's available?

I primarily need help booking our lodging, although advice on activities would also be MUCH appreciated. The popular places like Many Glaciers seem to be 100% full at this time. Does it make sense to spend the first night in Kalispell, and the last night in Kalispell? Our departing flight leaves first thing in the morning so I think that definitely might make sense.

Should we try and find somewhere more interested to stay in the middle to minimize time wasted driving and see some different things? Any suggestions on places that may still have availability for us?

Is it a bad idea to stay in Kalispell the entire time?

Thanks!
