Phil, All the roads we will travel in the Helena area are primary vehicle roads which should not be affected.

Sounds like a great ride. I'm planning to participate.

I booked site C126 at Fish Creek CG for July 26 . Second vehicle space is available if someone wants it. Send me PM. (Second camping space is taken.)

All,

Thanks for posting the open spaces so far for the first night's camping in Glacier National Park.

For those who haven't secured a camping spot, NOW's the time to do so.

If you do secure a spot and have extra room, please post it here and I'm sure you'll get a rider to share your camping spot.

Robert is out of tent spaces, only cabins. I guess Yaak River Campground is first come, first serve?

I took Timmer's suggestion and got my campsite at Fish Creek. I have site C138 and Oldtimer will be taking the second spot in the site.

Now about Yaak - - - I didn't think there would be a problem but it's looking like things are filling up? Is there dispersed camping in the Yaak area? I'm thinking there probably is but I haven't done the research. If there's dispersed camping then if all the campgrounds are filled then there is still camping options.

LB, Yaak should be a ride thru. Starting at Troy - first night at Fish Ck.

Any reason for Yaak?

I haven't researched camping potential around Yaak. We will be going past Tuchuck between Eureka and Polebridge. Once they open early summer, I will be contacting Polebridge Merc. just to find out what facilities they may have. I was originally going to stop for the day at PB, but wanted a very early start Sunday for the GTS route.

I just reserved C124 at Fish Creek. The website lists one more campsite on the C loop as of 4:41 PDT. Just an fyi

Timmer - I mentioned that it's jonz +1 but the list only shows jonz. No big deal but it will allow a more complete count. My riding buddy (Kim on a 2013 GS1200) will be staying with me in C124 above

Thanks for the reminder, I'll reflect the +1.

"This includes start location information (Yaak River Campground near the Yaak Road on US 12 - 9:00 am. There are two campgrounds at that location. One on each side of the Yaak River, but both are on the Kootenai River."

I don't know this area but the Yaak River Campground is not near Yaak...this is where I will be camping on Friday. It is on our route just north of Troy...hope this helps.

I've not camped at either campground but I've seen enough FS roads in the area to know that one could fing a place to sleep. Last time I was in Yaak you could get a room for $25. Actually, Yaak would make a great place to stop for breakfast.

Confused Yaak Campground with being in or near Yaak.
