WEST GLACIER, Mont. [August 16, 2023] – The NPS is seeking input for Glacier National Park until September 30, 2023. Thier aim is to enhance visitor experiences for 2024. Public meetings, both virtual and in-person, in late August will explain past vehicle reservation pilots and gather opinions.
Over the past 20 years, annual visits have doubled, causing peak-season congestion. Pilot vehicle reservations were initiated in 2021 to address traffic issues and resource impacts. Data analysis and community feedback refined the system. Superintendent Dave Roemer emphasizes public input’s importance in devising strategies for managing high visitation in 2024. Various meetings will provide details and engage with the community. The goal is to ensure access while preserving the park and visitor experiences, aligning with the National Park Service mission.
