Narrative

Lake, 1 mi long, in the Bunger Hills, occupying the E half of the peninsula between Booth and Countess Peninsulas. First mapped from air photos taken by USN Operation HighJump, 1946-47. The name "Smith Ridge" was given to the peninsula in 1956 by US-ACAN but was later dropped. The lake has instead been named for Kenneth R. Smith, air crewman on the USN Operation HighJump seaplane commanded by D.E. Bunger which landed in the area and obtained air and ground photos in February 1947.
