Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Lake McDonald with additional information or photos.

The views from the shoreline, especially along the south end are fantastic as the mountains grace the background. Heading out onto the lake with a canoe or kayak is especially spectacular.

As visitors get close to the shore in the morning, they are treated to the reflection of the mountains in the water. Sometimes, the morning fog can obscure the bottom of the lake and, as the sun rises, the rest of the mountain becomes visible. People come from all over just to experience these views.
