Lakes Schrader and Peters/Carnivore Creek
Together, Schrader and Peters are known as the Neruokpuk Lakes. Schrader is the northern lake, roughly four and a half miles long and a mile wide; Peters, four miles long, is connected to the south end of Schrader by a narrow channel. The southern tip of Lake Peters, at the foot of Mt. Chamberlin, is fed on the east by runoff from Chamberlin Glacier via Chamberlin Creek, and on the south by Carnivore Creek, carrying water north from glaciers south of Mt. Chamberlin.

Okiotak Mountain is on the western shore of Lake Schrader. The G. William Holmes Research Station, established in 1944 by the US Geological Survey for the US Navy Office of Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves, is on the eastern shore of Lake Peters.

Peters and Schrader Lakes were named for William John Peters (1863-1942), a USGS topographer, and Frank Charles Schrader (1860-1944), a USGS geologist, who explored this region in 1901 on a reconnaissance led by Peters.
