Lake McDonald Webcam View

To many visitors to the park, this view is their first introduction to the spectacular scenery of Glacier National Park. This iconic view from Apgar, at the foot of Lake McDonald, really shows what Glacier is all about...big glacially carved lakes, vast wild views of the high peaks along the Continental Divide, and the ever-changing forests that blanket much of the lower elevations. It's no wonder that for many people when they think of Glacier, they think of this view.

Many Web visitors ask about the boat and orange buoy in the view and the necessity for them to be there. The boat and buoy is used by our boat concessioner to support the boating rental operation.
