The North Fork Road is gravel and can be very dusty when dry. The best route is by way of Camus Road, whcih is a left turn after entering Glacier Park from West Glacier. This turn is the 'T' intersection ~ straight goes to the Apgar Transit Center / Visitor Center, right goes to Logan Pass and left goes goes to Camas Road which dead ends into the North Fork Road after crossing the North Fork River. The roads within Glacier Park in the North Fork area make the North Fork Road look like a super highway. They are rough dirt roads with large potholes, single lane with two way traffic! Back when my 1976 Suburban was still working Kintla Lake was my favorite Fall campground. Now with a Subaru with nearly a 1/4 million miles on it, it has been several years since I have been to the North Fork area.
"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think,
all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.
The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.
How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.
The secret of happiness is something to do."
"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order."
