Glacial Lake is about 6 miles long; runs north to south and is nested into the Kugluaik Mountain Range of the Seward Peninsula, Alaska. This mountain range is popularly known as the "Sawtooth mountains".

The lake is figure-8 shaped, with a sandspit in the middle which can be seen in the picture above. The clean, creamy, sandy beach makes an excellent picnic and campground. Willows and alders vegetate the spit and offer shelter from any unruly winds that may arise.

The mountainsides are heavily vegetated with the same willow and alder brush and appear as shadows to the left and right of the lake.

Fishing is reported to be superb at this location!
