The Best Beach In Glacier National Park Panorama 2
Photograph - Photograph
Kintla Lake is a lake in the northwestern portion of Glacier National Park in Montana. The lake is located in a rather remote portion of the park, close to the Canadian border. The lake is a 40 mi (64 km) drive from the west entrance along bumpy dirt roads, but the scenery on the way is spectacular. At 1,698 acres (687 ha), Kintla Lake is only slightly smaller than Bowman Lake, and is the fourth largest lake in the park.
Canoeing and kayaking are ideal on the lake, as no motorized watercraft are allowed. The lack of motor noise means that Kintla Lake is ideal for swimming, provided you can withstand the icy-cold, glacier fed waters. The Best Beach in Glacier National Park is located at the head of Kintla Lake, a 6 mile hike from the parking lot at the foot of the lake.
There is a quiet campground on the lake, and it is rarely filled because of its remote location. Fishing is also popular on the lake, because of the trout found in it. There are also options for day hikes and extended hikes into the backcountry in the area.
