YES, you can rent bear spray in Glacier National Park! With all of our rentals, we make sure you leave feeling comfortable with how it works and how to use it – just in case you need to. When renting bear spray, give yourself about ten minutes to complete the process, and/or be sure to watch either our training video online or the one provided in your confirmation email. We provide two 24-hour drop box locations within the Park and one in the Glacier Park International Airport.
If the canister is returned unused and undamaged, you will be charged your agreed upon rental price. If your rental canister is sprayed and/or damaged, you will be charged the full retail price of $49.99
Yes. We highly suggest that visitors carry bear spray in the park as Glacier is home to the largest numbers of both grizzly and black bear in the lower 48. Sightings happen every day in the park and bear spray has been shown to be the most effective deterrent in addition to being an inexpensive way to prevent bear attacks.
We purchase new canisters of bear spray every year and keep strict records of the weight of each can. If the canister is not completely full or in good condition, it is taken out of our fleet.
Yes! We have a drop off location in East Glacier at Looking Glass Base Camp. The address is 1112 HWY 49 East Glacier, MT 59434.
