Lake Josephine is located in Glacier National Park, in the U. S. state of Montana. Swiftcurrent Lake is immediately to the northeast of Lake Josephine and the two lakes are separated by a short (.3mi) stream.

  • An absolutely beautiful lake. You get to pass it doing the Grinnell glacier hike, or you can hike right down to it. There is also a loop hike that goes all the way around it. If you start at the Many Glacier Hotel the entire loop is about 5.8 miles roundtrip. It's not very busy so you can sit and watch the occasional ferry come across. Make sure you watch for wildlife!
