East Glacier is the perfect point to start, headquarter, or end your visit to Glacier National Park. Early Glacier National Park visitors pulled in on the train heading from the east, to spend the night at Glacier Park Lodge before saddling up for a backcountry ride in the company of a guide. Words cannot describe the splendor of Glacier National Park, known as the "Switzerland of North America". This feeling is enhanced by the historic, Swiss style lodges and chalets located throughout the Park. There are over a thousand miles of hiking trails with views of glaciers, brilliant wildflowers, snowcapped peaks, and clear mountain streams. Varied wildlife inhabit Glacier National Park, including bighorn sheep, mountain goats, ptarmigan, and both black and grizzly bears.
The people are friendly here and the beautiful location will make your visit something special. East Glacier Park is located on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, encompassing 1.5 million acres from the Rocky Mountains to the Great Plains. It is the home to the Amskapi Pikuni Band of the Blackfeet nation. East Glacier is within the Blackfeet Indian Reservation boundaries and is part of an area historically and culturally important to the Blackfeet.
East Glacier will provide you with the largest variety of facilities and supplies available in the area.
