Jackson Creek in the
McDonald Lake Area

Oh what a fantastic day to stop by Jackson Creek. The lighting was fantastic. All the heavy clouds made for the best photo shooting of moving water.

At about the 10 mile mark along the Going To The Sun Road, you will encounter the historic Lake McDonald Lodge. And just before the turn to the lodge, one of the most photographed creeks in the park is on your right. The creek is not marked and there is not much parking available, so park in the lodge's spacious parking area, the short walk to the creek is well worth it.
