About this form

Use this form to pay for standard group size (1-8 individuals) backcountry permit advance reservation fees.

Due to issues related to the Pay.gov website, opening day for backcountry permit advance reservations has been moved forward to Wednesday, March 17, 2021. Other than this date change, all other aspects of the advance reservation process will remain the same.


In anticipation of long delays and congestion in the Many Glacier Valley in 2020/2021, backcountry campers are encouraged to select alternative routes that do not begin or end in Many Glacier.
Similarly, backcountry campers are encouraged to pick up their permits (advance reservations or walk-in permits) at one of four other permit issuing stations in the park:
  • Apgar
  • St. Mary
  • Two Medicine
  • Polebridge

Please visit the Backcountry Camping page on the park website for complete information on backpacking in Glacier.

Accepted Payment Methods:

  • Bank account (ACH)
