Lake McDonald is the largest lake in the Glacier National Park. It is located on the west side of the Continental Divide, ending at the Apgar Village in west Glacier. The lake is 10 miles long, one mile wide and 472 feet deep. Along the southeastern edge of Lake McDonald lies the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Approximately 10 miles up the lake on the eastern side is the Lake McDonald Lodge, constructed in 1913 to resemble a rustic hunting lodge. McDonald Creek flows into the northern end of the lake and drains from the southwestern corner, emptying into the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Lake McDonald is a beautiful scenic body of water, surrounded my mountains and containing thousands of colored rocks along its shallow edges. Visitors can kayak, canoe, fish or just gaze at the beauty of nature of this wonderful lake.
