Kayak Bowman Lake, Glacier NP
Montana › Bowman Lake Campground
Added by Brent Susinger
If you love to kayak in Glacier this one's for you! Incredible views!! This is the 3rd largest lake in the park, and not commonly visited because it's a more remote area. But be careful...FREEZING COLD WATER ;)
The lake is located in the northwestern portion of Glacier National Park, about 32.5 miles from the west entrance and 30 miles from the Canadian Border. From the little town of Polebridge, it is 6 miles north along an unpaved road. The lake is 7 miles long and approx .5 miles wide. Access to the lake is just beyond the campground. More info on the lake can be found here.
