Glacier National Park rolls out interactive park status pages; crews make plowing progress

Glacier National Park has rolled out three new information websites to help hikers, campers and bikers. Each new landing page will provide information about road conditions, campsite closures and trail statuses. 

By visiting, hikers will be able to check the status of trails before arriving at the trail head. Hikers and visitors can use the interactive map on the site to locate which trails are open and which are closed due to dangerous animal activity. The site also gives trail status summaries for any date of a given year so hikers can plan for trail conditions far in advance.

The new camping status webpage,, will show campers what campsites are open, closed, full, or what requirements are in place to camp there. Campers can filter their search by selecting either first-come/first-served campgrounds or campgrounds that require a reservation. 

This summer many campgrounds in Glacier have gone to a reservation-based camping experience during peak camping season. Those interested in making reservations at these campgrounds can do so by visiting
