The heavily forested west side of Glacier Park has five glacial valleys, each with a good-sized glacial lake and opportunities for camping, hiking, and fishing. Lake McDonald, the largest lake in the park, is the most used and developed. Logging, Quartz, Bowman, and Kintla lakes are north of Lake McDonald and are referred to as “the North Fork.” Logging and Quartz lakes are accessible only by trail. A ranger station at Polebridge services these northern areas. The main west entrance station is at West Glacier, and the west side visitor center is located at Apgar. This eTrail provides detailed information on family-friendly things to do. The destinations include: West Glacier and Alberta Visitor Center.
