Campers at Two Medicine may soon be able to tweet from their tents under the new plan of Glacier National Park.

According to a report, Two Medicine, an area with a campground and a camp store, would get limited internet access under the plan. 

Glacier National Park last week declared there was little or no impact for its new telecommunications plan that will offer limited internet and cell phone service in developed areas. The new project may also provide repeaters and towers in the park’s wilderness areas.

However, Sarah Lundstrum, the Glacier field representative for the National Parks Conservation Association, said that the Two Medicine area isn’t developed in the traditional sense as it lacks lodging.

Peter Metcalf, director of the Glacier-Two Medicine Alliance, had similar thoughts.

National parks are perceived as sanctuaries where one can disconnect from the modern world, Metcalf and Lundstrum noted.

“Now I can hang out in my tent (in Two Medicine) and tweet?” Lundstrum asked.

The park will seek commercial firms to install the internet and cell phone infrastructure in developed areas.

Commercial communications providers interested in submitting a proposal may contact Glacier National Park representative Brian McKeon at [email protected].
