Lake McDonald Beach

Historic Apgar Village is located just inside Glacier Park’s West Glacier entrance on iconic Lake McDonald and is a beautiful 20 mile drive down the Middle Fork of the Flathead River from the Izaak Walton Inn.  There you will enjoy the Historic Village and an idyllic pebble beach that stretches for miles.   Apgar is a great place to find gifts and supplies or sample local foods.  You can rent a boat, bicycle, or paddleboard while there, or just relax and take a dip in the lake or read on the beach.  Many people spend the day in fishing, riding, or swimming in Apgar.  Others meet with service providers like the Historic Red Bus Tours or catch an interpretive lecture led by the Park Rangers.  The views are unparalleled, and no trip to the Glacier Region is complete without a stop in Apgar Village.
