Carlyn the "manager" at Two Medicine Lake was VERY rude and had the worst customer service I've ever experienced. I wouldn't recommend this just because of the service I received.

Glacier Park Boat Co offers short rides on Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine. The rides allow you to enjoy the shore from the water. Some even see moose or bears out for a swim.
