Waiting For Summer At Glacier National Park

Rebecca Latson
Saturday, April 20, 2013

One of summer's pleasures at Glacier National Park is a lazy canoe paddle across Swiftcurrent Lake. Glacier is home to some spectacular mountain lakes, and park concessioners offer boat trips on several of them. You can also bring your own canoe, kayak or small power boat for use in the park.

Check the park website for important details, including restrictions on power boat use on park waters. The water is very cold year-round, so always wear a life jacket aboard a small boat.

Glacier is also home to spectacular traffic jams, and park consessionars offer low-quality "interpretive" tours (replete with invented facts) on several lakes.
