Lying at the northern end of Nelson Lakes National Park, Lake Rotoiti is one of the lakes that give the park its name. Like nearby Lake Rotoroa, it fills a trough carved by a glacier. Behind the lake is the St Arnaud Range, part of a chain of mountains that are a defining feature of the park. The more rounded landforms (front) were created by gravel washed down by melted glaciers.
