Cell and WiFi Connectivity

Cell reception and WiFi connectivity is very limited in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park is a remote place filled with pristine forests and rugged mountains. Visitors to Glacier will find that cell phone connectivity and reception is very limited.

Areas where visitors will find cell reception include West Glacier up to Apgar Village in the Lake McDonald Valley and St. Mary, but the reception greatly diminishes a mile away from these locations when venturing further into the park. Visitors should not expect any reception in the North Fork, Goat Haunt, Many Glacier, Two Medicine, Logan Pass, or anywhere deep within Glacier's backcountry. Even along Highway 2 on the southern edge of the park, there is no cell reception.

There is also no WiFi connectivity in Glacier National Park. None of our visitor centers, or ranger stations are equipped for WiFi. Consider downloading any apps or music before entering the park. For those needing a reprieve from the digital age, our visitor centers have bookstores for your analog pleasure.
