East Glacier Park is the perfect place to begin a Western Montana adventure. As one of the gateways to Glacier National Park, this community is authentically down-to-earth, complete with friendly locals serving up home-cooked meals, coveted huckleberry ice cream and insider tips on area attractions. Located on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, East Glacier Park and the surrounding area have cultural and historical significance to the Blackfeet Tribe. Fun Fact: All nine holes of the local golf course are named after former chiefs of the Blackfeet Nation.
A must-see in East Glacier is Glacier Park Lodge. Even if you're not staying the night, be sure to stop in and see the grandeur of this lodge and its lobby.
In East Glacier Park the Blackfeet Indian Tribe has had a major cultural influence—sharing their traditional regalia, celebrations, dancing and storytelling of the tribe and their home with visitors since Glacier Park Lodge was built. The Great Northern Railroad (and now Burlington Northern Santa Fe) has had its economic influence; French and English explorers and fur traders came and stayed; copper and gold miners came and went; the formation of Glacier National Park along with the national highway system made the place accessible to all; and western and foreign migration has colored this peculiar village, originally called Midvale.
