Pursuit Collection


Standing proudly at the southeast corner of Glacier National Park, Glacier Park Lodge was the first hotel built by the Great Northern Railway. It's been the first stop for exploration to the park for decades, and our staff here are the welcoming faces of Glacier.

Also known as the “Big Tree Lodge,” this historic property is located on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation and is part of a charming little community with all the basic services. Personal vehicles are bonus here for exploring the glacier-carved peaks and valleys of the national park.

All About the Lodge

Nestled in the town of East Glacier, 13 miles from Browning, MT and about 50 miles from St. Mary and Cut Bank.
The Team

Team members: 169 strong!

Summer Guests

We host over 28,000 guests June through September in our 162 guest rooms.

Stay Nourished

We offer 3 hearty meals in our employee dining room per day at a rate of $7.50/day, including access to employee dining between meal times for a quick snack, sandwich for the road, or bowl of cereal.

Staff Housing
We are proud to offer complimentary staff housing. Stay cozy in rustic staff dormitories with a roommate, including some couples’ accommodation. For work campers, there are a limited number of full hook-up employee RV slips available. We’ve got you covered with common areas, laundry, Wi-Fi, and an employee dining room on site.
Getting Around

Get out and about on regular staff shuttles, and guest shuttles when space is available. The lodge is walking distance to hiking trails (Blackfeet Nation recreation pass/park pass required), horseback riding, golf and more, however a personal vehicle (or a friend with one!) is useful for exploring the park.

Stay Connected

In our expert opinion, the best cell phone service provider in the area is Verizon. Staff Wi-Fi is available on site.
