Glacier National Park returning to normal after rain

KALISPELL – Parts of Glacier National Park are reopening after being closed by heavy rain last week.

The St. Mary Campground was closed but is now open with limited camp sites available.

The Waterton Shoreline Cruise Co. has resumed tours on Waterton Lake to Glacier Park’s Goat Haunt, where the dock was damaged due to high water.

The Daily Inter Lake reported that it is expected that Kintla Lake will be accessible this weekend. The road leading there was closed at the head of Big Prairie due to high water.

And plow crews are expected to renew their efforts on Going-to-the-Sun Road starting today. The road had avalanches in the Haystack and Alps areas, where replowing will be necessary to get back to work at Logan Pass.
