"No bad trip in Glacier".

Glacier National Park is known as a backpacker's paradise, and for much of the park's history, little regulation of backcountry camping existed. But as visits to the park's primitive interior increased, concerns grew about safely accommodating this use while protecting wilderness resources (Impacts to vegetation; Impacts to soil; Impacts to wildlife; Impacts to water). Today, backcountry camping is managed primarily through the strategies of Limiting use; Reducing the impact of use; and Hardening resources/experiences. A sophisticated permit system is used to limit use throughout the backcountry (Rationing/Allocation). Visitors are required to camp at designated campsites (Facility development/Site design/Maintenance), and are informed about rules and safety issues through a backcountry camping video, a backcountry guide, and on the park website (Rules/Regulations; Information/Education). In addition, backcountry rangers help to ensure visitor awareness of these issues and to enforce park rules when necessary (Law enforcement). Finally, a range of camping opportunities - from at-large camping to hike-in chalets - are provided to accommodate different types of backcountry experiences (Zoning).
