  • Visited twice... hiked by myself early morning for photos. Back with 7 others.... took the boat trip route. Both equally engaging, enjoyable. Must trip for photographers.  more »
  • Easy hike to a gorgeous little mountain lake. If you can't handle the walk, you can even take a boat from the Swiftcurrent Lodge.  more »

  • An absolutely beautiful lake. You get to pass it doing the Grinnell glacier hike, or you can hike right down to it. It's not very busy so you can sit and watch the occasional ferry come across.
  • Of the more accessible lakes its very beautiful and not crowded at all

Where to stay in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park offers a wealth of accommodation options right inside the park. You can stake a tent in one of theĀ campgrounds or choose from a handful of rustic lodges and chalets. Rooms fill up quickly at these, so make reservations as far in advance as possible (up to a year ahead). A few inns, motels, and lodges sit around the St. Mary's Lakes by the park's northeast boundary, but staying in Whitefish on the western side is a better choice if you prefer to be in a Montana mountain town. Here you'll find homey inns and lodges, economy motels, and a wide range of restaurants. You'll find additional inns and motels as you drive east along Route 2 toward the park's entrance.
