This name originates from United States of America. It is part of the United States Gazetteer and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
A meltwater lake 1 mi long in the ice shelf of George VI Sound, lying below Swine Hill with its E shore bounding the exposed rocks of the W coast of Palmer Land. In summer a considerable volume of water enters the lake from the ravine immediately N of Swine Hill. First seen and surveyed in 1948 by the FIDS. The name arose at that time and results from the mad rush by the sledge dogs which attempted to throw themselves and their sledge down the steep ice slopes into the water, like the Gadarene swine.
