Lake Five Resort sits along the eponymous body of water, offering a secluded and pristine getaway. The lake has warm, clear water, making it an ideal spot for swimming, boating, skiing and other water activities. There are plenty of options for water access both on resort grounds and at other parts of the lake. Paul's Memorial Fishing Access is a great place to launch boats for better lake enjoyment.
Glacier National Park

Hiking isn't the only activity available. Other popular activities include photography, bicycling, fishing, boating and cross-country skiing, among many others. Glacier National Park is open year-round but may have less staff in the offseason.

The northern portion of the forest is what's closest to Lake Five Resort. Canyon Creek Groomed Snowmobile Trail System is a close point of interest.
