The lakes in the Dzūkija groves are small, hidden in the thickets of the forest. The lakes of Bakanauskų, Trikampio, Kastinio and others similar to them, often regularly round or oval, appeared much later, when the glaciers retreated, the climate grew considerably warmer and the lumps of ice buried by permafrost melted down. Many lakes are already rather overgrown with weeds and hardly accessible. There are more of them in the valleys in the north-western part of the park. The route of the waters of the melting glaciers is marked by the cascade of Gelovinės, Gilšės, Kampinio, Pakelinio and Linmarko Lakes. The lakes of Giluišio, Balažerio, Netiesio, Netiesėlio, Dumblinio and Pakampio, as if strung on a light-blue vein of the Kempė rivulet, appeared in the period of early floods of the Nemunas. The narrow and deep lakes of Galvinio and Bedugnio with steep slopes, or Lizdų Lake, the largest in the park, which lies among the hills, are already reminiscent of Aukštaitija landscapes.
