Bowman Lake is in the northwestern portion of Glacier National Park in Montana. It is not commonly visited by most visitors to Glacier National Park, because it is located in one of the more remote areas of the park. It is more well-known among local residents, though, who use the small, uncrowded campground. The lake is accessed via a 6 miles unpaved road from the small town of Polebridge. At 1,706 acres, Bowman Lake is the third largest lake in the park, after Lake McDonald and Saint Mary Lake.
