Our Trip from Fargo, ND to Glacier National Park
Planning for a trip to Glacier National Park may seem like a simple process, but there was quite a bit more planning than I had originally thought.
The biggest question mark for me was: How much was it going to cost us in fuel for a round-trip from Fargo to Glacier National Park?
So I did what any rational person (data nerd) would do, and I saved every receipt from each gas station stop. Outside of the data provided in this blog post, I highly recommend you check out GasBuddy and their excellent Trip Cost Calculator before heading out on your trip.
- We took our trip in late July/early August of the summer of 2020.
- I know that we spent about $50 in gas in addition to the costs below for fuel for just driving through the park on our 4 day stay.
