Upon docking at the head of the lake you can choose to remain on the boat or disembark and begin a self-guided hike or hike with one of our guides to Twin Falls and catch a later return boat.

Glacier National Park has implemented a Vehicle Reservation System for the Going to the Sun Road corridor (GTSR), Many Glacier valley and Two Medicine valley. Reservations for boat tours or watercraft rentals at Lake McDonald, Many Glacier, Two Medicine, Rising Sun at St. Mary Lake, or Apgar include vehicle access on the day of your reservation to the reserved location only. Many Glacier and Two Medicine reservations do not provide access to the GTSR corridor as both of these locations do not require travel on the GTSR corridor for access. Please remember current Park entry fees still apply.

Effective May 26, 2023, through September 10, 2023, vehicle reservations are required to access the GTSR corridor for Lake McDonald or Apgar activities. Please utilize the West Entrance of the park prior to July 1, 2023, as access to these locations from the St. Mary Entrance of the GTSR corridor will not be available until July 1, 2023, or until the GTSR is fully open.

Effective July 1, 2023, through September 10, 2023, vehicle reservations are required to access the Many Glacier and Two Medicine valleys for activities, as well as the St. Mary Entrance of the GTSR for activities at Rising Sun on St. Mary Lake.
