About Lake McDonald Lodge & Cabins

Located on the western side of Glacier National Park, Lake McDonald Lodge, which first opened in 1914, rests on the shores of Lake McDonald, the deepest lake within Glacier National Park. The lodge is also an essential stop as it is on the western end of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, one of the most scenic drives in the United States.

Lake McDonald Lodge offers activities such as the Red Bus Tours, evening ranger programs, and boat tours. There is no need for a fishing license inside the park so bring your fishing gear.


There is also kayaking and canoeing on the lake. There is a gift shop located inside the lodge and a camp-store about 300 yards from the main lodge. The gift shop offers everything from postcards to beautiful Native American jewelry. The camp-store carries groceries for campers and for picnics and things you may have forgotten along with huckleberry gifts for all the family.

There are a few dining options at Lake McDonald including the Russell's Fireside Dining Room located inside the lodge. The dining room has a breakfast buffet open from 6:30 AM to 10 AM, along with full lunch and dinner menus. Lunch is available from 11:30 AM to 2 PM and dinner is available from 5 PM to 9:30 PM.

Lucke's Lounge is the bar located next to the dining room and offers an open view of Lake McDonald with outdoor seating. It offers a bar menu from 11:30 AM to 10 PM. The bar is open for drinks from 11:30 AM to 11 PM.

Jammer Joe's Grill and Pizzeria is located across the parking lot from the Main Lodge. It is a family-style restaurant opened from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM. There are an all-you-can-eat pasta, pizza, and salad buffet along with lunch and dinner menus.
