Incredible National Park Lodges for Your Next Family Vacation
Lake McDonald Lodge: Glacier National Park
Built in 1913, this historic Swiss-style chalet is not to be missed. Tucked away on the shores of the sprawling Lake McDonald, a stay here puts you in the heart of Glacier National Park. Amenities may not be luxurious, but they are far from rustic. Families can choose from many different room sizes and styles, from simple guest rooms to multi-room suites. Three dining facilities are available onsite. Lake McDonald is an adventure hub for the western side of Glacier National Park. There are several great hikes, horseback riding tours, and scenic boat cruises available, not to mention swimming and fishing in the frigid waters of this massive glacial lake.
What we love: Kayaking Lake McDonald. Rentals are available at the lodge.
Best time to visit: Summer is really the best time for hiking, paddling, and swimming in Glacier National Park.
