Local Area Attractions Near St. Mary / East Glacier KOA
Glacier National Park is awaiting your arrival!
Glacier Park Historic Chalets
Glacier Park has two historic chalets that are available for hikers. Granite Park Chalet has a more rustic appeal and Sperry Chalet, which suffered devastating damage during the fires of 2017, will be offline indefinitely. The National Park Service will decide this spring an approximate date to expect repairs to be completed. Advance reservations are necessary to stay at Granite Park Chalet but you can stop by if you are hiking the loop trail and purchase refreshments and light snacks. Glacier Wilderness Guides offer guided hikes in the Park and guided fishing.
