Either I'm confused (likely), or most other people who have reviewed Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park are. I was under the impression that both parks combined make up the aforementioned Waterton-Glacier...Park. It seems per the reviews, however, that this page is only for the Canadian part of the park. And yet there doesn't seem to be a page just for the US side. Hmm. In any case, I shall review the park as I understand it to be: a park that spans both countries but is, after all, the same park. (If you look at the address on this page, you'll see that it's even Glacier National Park, MT). All of that said, the park--however you want to classify it or name it or whatever--is stunning. Wildlife abounds, hiking trails are prolific, mountains stretch to the sky, rivers and creeks run rampant, and glacial lakes dot much of the landscape. For those who complain about this, that and the third (it's too crowded, the weather can be bad, parts of the park are closed at certain times of the year, fire damage makes some trails inhospitable or not very pretty, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera), let me counter all of those points: Yes, it can be very crowded. That's b/c it's a pretty fantastic spot on the Earth, and a lot of people want to see and experience it. Also, there are plenty of places to go to avoid the crowds. We backpacked in to Ole Lake Campground (eight miles from the car/trail head) and had the place to ourselves for two nights and didn't see anyone even hiking around the area during the day. This was the first week of September, so still in the touristy part of the year. Second, weather is just weather, it's neither good nor bad. This park is in nature, which is why it's so appealing (I mean, most people go so that they can experience cool mountains and lakes and rivers and wildlife, right? All aspects of nature?), and sometimes it rains, or snows, or hails or is hot or is sunny or whatever. The good thing is, if you're able to go to the park to begin with, you're probably able to also acquire suitable clothing, et al., for various types of weather (e.g., rain coats, hats, sunnies, sun screen, mozzie spray, etc.). Third, parts of the park can be closed for various reasons, and while that can be a bummer, the park is massive enough that quite a few other parts of it will surely be open. We went during The Covid (while East Glacier was closed entirely) and, as already mentioned, found a part of the park w/o anyone else for two days. Finally, fires are destructive and of course can make parts of the park impassable. Again, that's a bummer, but it's also part of nature, which, one more time, is why this park is so cool to begin with. Where else can you sit near a glacial lake hemmed in by trees, hemmed in by mountains, and have the chance to see grizzlies, moose, elk, wolves, deer, bighorns, cougars, wolverines, and more? Rant over. The point is: this park is incredible. It's vast, diverse, gorgeous and awesome.

Because of Covid19, it’s understandable that some places are still closed so we were not able to see majority of Glacier Nat’l. Park. We only saw the Canadian side since US border is still closed. However, the Canadian side is still great to experience. It raided 2 days straight but the 3rd day it was a mixture of sun and clouds. Majority of the days are windy and rainy. Waterton is the second windiest city in Canada. We had a great time nonetheless. Food we tried were The Wieners, Zum’s has the best chicken, Welch’s candy shop (expensive store but has a tasty Honey Cashew Crunch ice cream), I love the afternoon tea at The Prince of Wales Hotel (a must), Cameron Falls is glorious though Cameron Lake is incidentally closed for the year due to maintenance. Red Rock Canyon is great with its rock formation and falls, meadows. It has exceptional alpine scenery and deep valleys filled with ancient forests.

Visited July 2019. We visited glacier park in Montana, first. The weather was not the greatest. We had maybe 2 days of sunny, nice weather. Despite my best efforts to plan the best time of year to visit. The city of Waterton is very nice. The people are very friendly. Service is excellent. Expect to pay for it. The food, gas are very expensive. We were in my camper. But went out to eat our first night. Local restaurant. I had a cheeseburger and side. Maybe a beer. My bill was close to $40. I asked the waitress why everything was so expensive. She had a rehearsed response. Their minimum wage was higher than other places, everything has to be imported in ( this town is very remote). While all of this may be true, the people that own these businesses, all have 2nd and 3rd homes in the US. This is a tourist destination and of course due to the location they would not be able to make a living there year round. We were not able to drive through the park. It was only open to hikers and cyclists. I wish I had known this or I would have brought my own bike! We had to rent them. Pats gas and cycle. The service was ok. This is one of the worst bike rentals I have come across on my travels. The bikes were heavy. Not all the gears worked. I had to ask for a helmet. And they didn’t offer any gel seats for people that don’t ride that often. I paid a pretty penny for one day! And waterton is the 2nd windiest place in Canada. The park was beautiful without all the traffic. We did a boat ride up to US Glacier and back. Great tour. Not a lot of campgrounds. But very clean. They have recycling receptacles at campground. That was refreshing. We only stayed for 3 days. Which was adequate because weather was awful. It was cold and rainy most of time. Except for the one day we went biking. I’m glad for the experience, but probably will never go back.

while staying at Glacier NP we took a side trip to Waterton for the day - well worth the drive, a lovely place and the village has several good restaurants and cute shops. Lake and mountains are beautiful - get some maple cream cookies they are great

Both Waterton and Glacier share not only an international border but also an unmatched natural beauty.
