National park tips: When visiting Glacier National Park, hang your hat here
In Montana’s Glacier National Park, the Rocky Mountain views are epic and the scale is jumbo at the Many Glacier Hotel, which looms at the edge of Swiftcurrent Lake on the east side of this Montana park.
But the 82-room Lake McDonald Lodge, toward the west end of the park, is more intimate, built in 1913 and substantially renovated in 2015 to retain its hunting-lodge feel. Lodge rooms, suites and cabins run $110 to $282 nightly, more for suites. Open May 19 to Sept. 27 in 2017.
In honor of this year’s National Park Service centennial, the Travel section is posting 100 park travel ideas and tips based on trips staff travel writer Christopher Reynolds has taken, along with photo-op advice from Times photographer Mark Boster. We’ll post one per day through Dec. 31.
