Glacier National Park officials received word late in the afternoon on June 25 that the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council voted to keep the east side access points into Glacier National Park closed until the end of the 2020 visitor season. We understand the Blackfeet Tribe’s concerns regarding COVID-19 and its potential impacts to the residents of the reservation and their culture. While we were already preparing to operate with only west side access for an interim period into July, we need time to digest and understand all the impacts and ramifications of the council’s resolution. We are in the process of determining what this means to park operations and what facilities on the east side will be available by accessing from the west entrance. The Park will be getting information out as soon as it is available regarding our next steps.
