Glacier National Park will implement a pilot vehicle reservation system in the summer of 2024. Vehicle reservations are required beginning May 24 for the west side of Going-to-the-Sun Road and North Fork and on July 1 for Many Glacier. Each location has unique details and requires a separate reservation. Learn more about the 2024 Pilot Vehicle Reservation System on Glacier National Park's Website.
A vehicle reservation is required for each automobile and motorcycle entering the Going-to-the-Sun Road corridor via the West Entrance, just past the Apgar Campground, and the North Fork area of the park from May 24 through September 8, 2024, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Vehicle reservations are also required for Many Glacier from July 1 through September 8, 2024, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. In addition to a vehicle reservation, a park pass is required to enter the park. A vehicle reservation does not include a park pass, and the park pass does not serve as a vehicle reservation.

Visitors with lodging, camping (including front country developed campgrounds and backcountry camping permits), transportation, or commercial activity reservations originating east of Logan Pass cannot be used instead of a vehicle reservation for access past the Apgar Check Point heading west on Going-to-the-Sun Road.
Visitors with service reservations along Going-to-the-Sun Road in locations east of Logan Pass (ex: Rising Sun and St. Mary campgrounds/boating) will need to enter Going-to-the-Sun Road via the St. Mary Entrance if they do not possess a vehicle reservation for Going-to-the-Sun Road (West). All visitors will be able to drive Going-to-the-Sun Road without a vehicle reservation going west from St. Mary.
Visitors with lodging, camping, transportation, or commercial activity reservations within Many Glacier can use their reservation for entry instead of a $2 reservation to gain access to the portion of the park for which they have a reservation.
Service reservations are not available in the North Fork area.
Wilderness camping permits or proof of a registered campsite allow vehicle access to the area in the which reservation is valid for the day/s of service (i.e., a wilderness camping permit for a trail in Many Glacier only provides access to Many Glacier and no other areas of the park).
