We had reservations on the east-side a year out, and then COVID hit. The east side was closed and remained closed through 2020. We flexed to the west-side, which was open at least open but with no camping. We camped in a wonderful Montana State Park right on Flathead Lake near the town of Big Fork, about an hour south of the Glacier. Thank you! Montana for keeping your state parks open – Wayfarer’s is gorgeous. Glacier is serenely beautiful with the snow capped peaks surrounding Lake McDonald. There are easy hikes and really hard hikes. We did one hard try at Mount Brown summit but just missed. Even though it was late June, the Going to the Sun road was still closed short of the pass. It is not always snow. Sometimes, like this time, it is rock fall. There is a lot of great wildlife. We had encounters with two black bear along the river.
