When is Glacier Under Canvas® open?
Our season is June 19th to September 15th.
What time is check-in/out?
Check-in is from 3pm - 9.30pm and check out is 10am. If you are interested in checking in earlier or later, please give us a call and we'll do our best to accommodate your request.
Are camp cots suitable for adults?
Yes, with some limitations. Camp cots in our Tipis or as additional beds are not suitable for people weighing more than 300lbs or who are taller than 6' 2.
Can I cook outside my Tent?
Unfortunately no food is allowed in or around your tent. Opened drinks (other than water) and scented toiletries are also not advised. This is bear country and in order not to encourage bears into our camp food items need to be safely locked up in your car!
Will I have electricity in my Tent?
There is no electricity throughout the Camp. Solar pathway lighting will allow you the opportunity to take in a 1,000 star hotel room! The Milky Way is phenomenal from our location. That said, your tent will come equipped with lanterns for an evening glow and the bathroom trailer is lit all night. A charging station is available in reception for the electronics you absolutely cannot live without.
Will I see any wildlife? Are bears going to be a problem?
The Glacier region is known for its amazing wildlife and you have a great chance of seeing a variety of animals from the camp. Bears of course are amazing to watch, but are dangerous if they are too close. The camp has a strict no food policy so that we don’t attract bears into the camp. In order to ensure our guests’ safety, a staff member will be on site at all times. The safety of our guests is our first priority so you can relax without worry.
What is there to do at the Camp?
There are so many activities in the Glacier region, but many of our guests simply enjoy spending a day relaxing at the Camp. Walk to the lake next to the property and fish a bit or sit in a swing and read. There's as much or as little to do as you like... just let us know how we can help you.
Is the Camp family friendly?
Absolutely. Kids love it here! There's plenty of room to run free. And the Park has so much for kids to see. If you’re looking for family fun outside of the Park, the outdoor adventure options are endless. Amazing Fun Center, a family amusement park, is just a mile away with go-karts, mini golf, water slides and so much more for families and kids. Drive a few more miles and you’ll be at Big Sky Water Park, perfect for a family summer vacation! Please check out our Activities page for ideas or feel free to ask us.
Is fishing available? [will there be fishing on site?]
There are an abundance of places to fish in the area. However, you must buy a Montana state fishing license.
How far are you from Glacier National Park?
We are about 6 miles west of the West Glacier entrance on Highway 2. This means you can be inside the park within 10 minutes!
How many days does it take to see the park?
“A lifetime,” if you ask locals. But we recommend a minimum of two days. You can do a day tour (guided or un-guided) to visit the famous Logan Pass, but if you've got a little more time it is absolutely worth it. There’s so much to explore in Glacier’s vast wilderness, even one more day will let you take in the sights a little deeper, immerse yourself a little more and take a much deserved break in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
Should I make reservations for area activities in advance?
We absolutely recommend that you make reservations ahead of time as the summer is peak season! We are happy to help you plan your stay and schedule your itinerary so just give us a call (406 219 0441) or email us at email@example.com.
What’s the weather like?
The weather in mountainous regions can be quite unpredictable. Summer daytime temperatures can reach 90˚F, but it is oftentimes 10-15˚ cooler at higher elevations. Our best advice is to be prepared for anything and dress in layers because a 30˚F morning just might turn into an 80˚F afternoon. It does always get cold at night so, come prepared with a good coat and warm sleeping clothes!
What is the nearest airport?
Glacier Park International Airport (near Kalispell) is about 30 miles west of us. Missoula International Airport is about 150 miles south.
Do I need a car?
Having a car is ideal to fully explore the area. Rental cars are available at both airports.
Can I bring my pet?
We love pets and would be happy to accommodate them at Camp! We charge $25.00 per pet to cover additional cleaning costs. There’s plenty of room for them to run, but we do ask that you please pick up after them and keep them on a leash. Pets are also allowed in the Park, but on a very limited basis.
