  • Here, please allow at least 2 days to soak up the beauty and peace of the region. Scenic point is a hike of 10 km (exist), ideal to observe as well as bighorn sheep mountain goat. The easy hike around the Lake is just as pretty. The campsite is also worth a visit, several location are simply breathtaking.

  • Just an amazing place to checkout. It's not as crowded as Many Glacier which is great. As much as I love Many Glacier, Two Medicine is just as wonderful. The hikes aren't as challenging and popular nevertheless the views are breathtaking
  • This lake's views are simply stunning. And want is great for a swimming. Can get very windy at times but if you are hiking in the forest wind will not bother you.
  • One of the most picturesque, pristine and unpopulated spots in the park. Watched the sun set over the lake while sitting on the dock and cooling our feet in the crystal clear water.
  • Beautiful scenery in every direction! Grab a quick boat ride if you don't have enough time for the full hike.
  • Less crowded than most of the park. It also has great hiking and fishing.

Where to stay in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park offers a wealth of accommodation options right inside the park. You can stake a tent in one of the campgrounds or choose from a handful of rustic lodges and chalets. Rooms fill up quickly at these, so make reservations as far in advance as possible (up to a year ahead). A few inns, motels, and lodges sit around the St. Mary's Lakes by the park's northeast boundary, but staying in Whitefish on the western side is a better choice if you prefer to be in a Montana mountain town. Here you'll find homey inns and lodges, economy motels, and a wide range of restaurants. You'll find additional inns and motels as you drive east along Route 2 toward the park's entrance.
