Kayak Lake McDonald

Lake McDonald - Search Nearby - Added by Allie Rippe

Kayak Glacier National Park's most famous lake. Get off at a small island and eat lunch. Perfect way to spend a beautiful day in the park!

Rent kayaks at the shore of Lake McDonald and take them out for the day. Make sure to start early to get a full day in and leave yourself enough time to stop for lunch. There are multiple places to pull off and bring your kayaks onto the shore and do some small hikes. The views are spectacular from every angle.

One of my favorite places

Kayaking this lake is one of my favorite trips I have ever taken. Rent from Glacier Outfitters in Apgar Village, paddle Northwest past fish creek campground and dock by the rocky point trail just inside the cove. The water is a beautiful blue green, great for a swim!

Large, Serene Lake

Lake McDonald is a cold lake, but on a hot day, don't let the rumors stop you from jumping in!
