I really enjoyed the hike to Avalanche Lake, and the view when I got there.

We stayed in Apgar last week. It's a no reservation campground but we had no trouble getting a spot with our 27' 5th. There were sites there accommodating much larger rigs

The red buses are fine but save lots by using the free shuttle buses and just sit and watch. But I've also driven the highway dozens of times. there are plenty of places to pull off but parking is crowded.

If you want to park at the Logan Pass visitor center, you need to be there before 9 AM. Otherwise the lot is full and rangers will direct you to just keep going.

Was just there on the 28th somewhere between 11 and 12. Parking was very much at a premium, I and others were circling to get a spot, but the rangers were not directing anyone to keep going

Just back from our trip, Wonderful! I appreciate all the help! We did the NPS shuttle all the way around the Going to the Sun Road. Took hikes from several stops. We stayed at North American RV Park outside the West entrance. Not bad, a little crowded but we weren't there much. Full hookups. Looked through Apgar, it would have been tight and seemed like a lot of people waiting for the bigger spots. Would love to stay there, but traded for the security of a reserved spot. We were in the park more than the campground. Only advice I would add is to bring snacks/food and water along. Not much food is avaialble on the GTSR. Thank you all!
