In 1895 there were no roads along Lake McDonald. Tourists arrived at this dock by wood-fired steamboat after getting off the train at Belton Depot and bumping along in a wagon to Apgar Landing.

The steamboat F.I. Whitney was the first boat to transport visitors and supplies on Lake McDonald. According to one passenger, "It was too hot below deck by the boiler, and if you rode topside, sparks burned holes in your clothes." It was an adventure in transportation just to reach the threshold of the mountains.
