    We say the Lake District, so: In the Lake District you have lots of mountains to walk in.

    (At least, for the Lake District in the North of England.)

    It is possible that there is a place called "Lake District" in the US. I do not know. Without more specifics, I would expect the general phrase to take the article here, as well.

    If there are many districts in a place, each of them is probably called one of the districts. If one is full of lakes, it is probably called "the lake district" here in the United States. "Which district?" "The lake one."
