Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park

Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park

 

Glacier Park is the Jewel of the Northern Rocky Mountains, of the National Park System.

Boarding the Canadian Boarder offers some of greatest outdoor adventure opportunities from

Kayaking, hiking, backpacking, fly fishing and so much more.

Lake McDonald is Glacier National Park’s biggest lake; ten miles long and 472 feet deep. Filling a basin gouged out by Ice Age glaciers, Lake McDonald is a classic glacial feature. This long fjord-like lake is surrounded by mountains on the north, south, and east with the Continental Divide, 14 miles away. The mountains provide a spectacular backdrop for the lake and also act as a rain block. Much of the blocked precipitation ends up falling on the McDonald valley. The result is a mild, damp climate. Stands of western red cedar and hemlock flourish in the valley of Lake McDonald. The wildlife-viewing here can be spectacular, with species including bighorn sheep, mountain goat, elk, black bear, and whitetail and mule deer.
