St. Mary Lake

Glacier National Park, MT

The second largest lake in Glacier National Park, windswept St. Mary Lake spans 10 miles. Boasting countless rainbow trout, whitefish and cutthroat trout, it taunts fishers with abundance and dares intrepid travelers to launch their boat. Those who don’t give into temptation can admire its beauty from shore. Surrounded on 3 sides by dramatic mountains which settle into rolling prairies, the lake offers superb photo opportunities as well as campgrounds perfect for exploring Glacier Park’s east side.
