In Glacier National Park's high back
country wilderness, we highly recommend non-odorous foods to reduce
wildlife attracting aromas.
To reduce water use, food garbage, and
unnecessary waste, elaborate gourmet meals are not advised.

with propane lights.
We have limited facilities for water.
Each guest must provide their own water as
there is no water available at the chalet. The nearest source is 1/4 a
mile away along a rocky and rugged trail. You may either carry your
water in, haul water or purchase water at the chalet.
Restrooms are a modern pit toilet in a
separate building from the main chalet.
Camping in the Granite Park Area:
For those who wish to camp out, the Granite
Park campground is administered by the National Park Service. For
information on back country camping permits in Glacier, see Glacier National
country Camping Guide.
The weather in Glacier is very temperate, but
temperamental. The temperature in July and August varies from 29 to 80
degrees Fahrenheit at chalet elevations (6500+feet). The evenings are
usually cool and the buildings are not heated, so you'll need warm clothing
for evening use. Sudden rain squalls or thunderstorms can occur, so rain
gear should always be carried. Comfortable, appropriate footwear and good
socks for mountain hiking, are recommended. Sore, blistered feet and cold,
wet bodies are the biggest fun killers that can be encountered.
