Glacier Anglers Trip Advisor
We had a 3 person 4 day fly fishing trip on the Upper Middle Fork with Marc. Best fly fishing trip ever. The equipment was all in good shape. Marc knows the river like the back of his hand, pointing out an innumerable number of good places to catch fish. We were killing them! In addition, we got some class 4 & 5 whitewater on the trip and he was masterful with the raft. Great places to camp and great weather just capped off a wonderful trip.

Glacier Raft Co Facebook
Never went rafting before but am now PUMPED! Ryan, our river guide, had an impressive resume as son of folks who own a rafting company in W. Virginia…and a history of rafting himself since he was a kid! OK, I’m old (68) and a woman whose interest in adventure takes a slow downhill slide on a yearly basis. What I loved at West Glacier was that our river run was both tranquil, exciting and WHOO HOO exhilerating from time to time. This was an occasion that fit our family group–grandma, kids, and grandkids–without being TOO Tame…and has convinced me to push the envelope next time. FANTASTIC experience wrapped up with a super steak dinner at the end. Ah, the Huckleberry Cheese Cake was to DIE FOR! THE BEST ADVENTURE FOR THE MONEY IN GLACIER NAT’L Park!

Glacier Outdoor Center Cabins
At the end of June our family of 4 adults and 2 young kids were doing a quick tour of Glacier National Park. Idea was to stay in a different location each night and explore the area each day. Our first stop was West Glacier and we decided to stay at the Glacier Outdoor Center Cabins this time to try and avoid a little of the congestion in West Glacier and Apgar Village. We were overwhelmed by how nice, clean and BIG the cabins were! It was shoulder season so we got a 2-story new construction cabin with sleeping room for at least 10 people for the same price we would have paid for a tiny/outdated/thin walled room or cabin in Apgar. There was a full kitchen with all the necessary utensils/plates/coffee/sugar etc. There were gas fire places downstairs in the “family room” and upstairs in the kitchen. We used the fireplace at night for the down stairs as it was a bit chilly. Cabin had 2 full bathrooms, 2 queen beds in each of the 2 bedrooms and 2-3 sofa sleepers. There was a great upstairs balcony with outdoor seating just off the kitchen and separate entrances on both levels. There was even a bbq, wish we had known- would have stopped at the grocery store on the main highway on the way in to get something to grill! There was nothing we needed…but more time! After seeing the lovely cabin with such comfortable accommodations we wished we had booked a longer stay- one night was not enough! The grounds were beautiful, grassy areas to play, a pond with geese within a short walk from our cabin, sand volleyball court, huge towering pines and cottonwood trees (that were “snowing” when we were there!) Location is perfect- t was literally a 3 min drive to West Glacier shops/restaurants and the entrance to GNP. And as an added bonus we got a discount on our white water rafting trips just for staying with them. Now that we know about this secret location, we will definitely be back and next time we will have to stay longer and have more time to explore and enjoy the area.
