Each reservation is good for three consecutive days per vehicle.
Glacier National Park is implementing a vehicle reservation system in 2022 from May 27 through September 11. In addition to a vehicle reservation, visitors also need a park pass. There are two areas of the park affected by the vehicle reservation system.
Going-to-the Sun Road Corridor Vehicle Reservation (valid for 3 days)
A vehicle reservation is required for each vehicle accessing the Going-to-the-Sun Road Corridor Vehicle Reservation Area, which includes all points inside the West Entrance Station, Camas Entrance Station, and the Rising Sun checkpoint (6 miles west of the St. Mary Entrance). The reservation period is 6 am to 4 pm daily. A vehicle reservation does not guarantee a parking space in popular areas.
Vehicle reservations to access the Going-to-the-Sun Road corridor west of the Rising Sun checkpoint from the St. Mary Entrance will not be required until the full length of Going-to-the-Sun Road opens for the season (typically late June).
North Fork Vehicle Reservation (valid for 1 day)
A North Fork Vehicle Reservation is required for each vehicle accessing the North Fork area of the park through the Polebridge Entrance Station. Vehicle reservations will be checked at the Polebridge Entrance Station. The reservation period is 6 am to 6 pm daily. A vehicle reservation does not guarantee a parking space in popular areas.
The North Fork is a primitive area of the park, with no cell service and rough, unimproved roads. To avoid vehicle breakdowns in a remote area without cell service, only vehicles with high clearance and 12-ply rated tires or higher should visit the North Fork area.
