WEST GLACIER, Mont. [August 9, 2023] – Glacier National Park is proposing fee rate changes to most front country campgrounds in 2024 and Apgar Group Sites in 2025. Public comments on the proposed fee increases will be accepted through September 8, 2023.  

Glacier is a popular front country destination with a high demand for campsites. The last major fee rate change occurred in 2007; fee rate increases are necessary to be in closer alignment with nearby campgrounds outside the park that provide similar services.   

After extensive research of local campground rates and provided services outside the park, the park has identified proposed fee rate changes. The proposed rates for campsites would increase between $3-10 depending on the type of site. Some group sites could potentially increase up to $30 while others could decrease up to $20.  

Recreation fees provide a vital source of revenue for improving facilities and services to enhance visitor experiences.  Projects funded by recreation fees include trail and campground repairs and improvements, increasing accessibility, and facility restoration. By increasing fees, Glacier National Park will continue to be able to provide and improve services that directly benefit visitors.  

Public engagement is an important part of the park’s planning process. Comments can be submitted on the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website at
