After hiking the Bald Hill trail, enjoyed a little shopping and lunch at the Lakes facilities. They had a lot of nice items to purchase and the meal was good as well. Self serve, cafeteria style.

A truly magnificent lake at the end of a beautiful drive from Jasper. The lake is wonderful on its own, but the big attraction here is the boat tour. We took it many, many years ago and it was great. There's a very nice day use facility with a cafeteria and gift shop.

Beautiful scenery like straight out of a paragraph, especially with the boat house in the foreground.

Worth the drive. Absolutely stunning scenery and vistas. Lake cruise is expensive but a must, as you get to Spirit Island and 2/3 along the lake. Great commentary and good shop/ food at the lodge. (Aussies in Canada)

The fall drive was beautiful! Wish we had time to take the boat trip on the lake, it was a gorgeous day! September is a good time of year to go as there was fewer people.

We arrived early and enjoyed less people movement. The lake walk was excellent (can be very cold early so dress appropriately).

If you are in Jasper, this is a must do. The lake is big, awesome and not so crowded, also because big parking spaces are available. Scenic pictures can be taken from every point, and it's wilder and more untouched than other famous lakes in the Rockies. Good chances to spot wildlife, even in the middle of the day. However...
