Lake McDonald Lodge is located near the north end of the lake just off Going to the Sun Road. The small village of Apgar is located at the south end of the lake. Apgar campground and Fish Creek campground are nearby.
The lake tends to be calmer than St.Mary's Lake on the east side of the park, but is a mountain lake, so care should be taken.
Assuming a start at Apgar, paddling the perimeter of the lake offers stunning mountain views, opportunities for viewing wildlife, and, if you're so disposed, a stop at Lake McDonald Lodge for lunch.
Another option is paddling one way from Apgar to Lake McDonald Lodge and then taking the shuttle back to Apgar to pick up your vehicle. Crystal clear water and a relaxing paddle in the mountains are a bonus.
