We've read that Jasper National Park was designated as a Dark Sky Preserve so we decided to head out to Pyramid Lake to stargaze and we were not disappointed. Pyramid Lake is only 10-15 minutes drive out from town. On a clear night, the whole sky is lit up with so many stars. Only downside was there were cougar warnings... More

Pyramid is a good spot for a day trip as its right by Jasper and the surrounding campgrounds.

These two lakes, pretty close together, are wonderful for sunrise and sunset pictures with snow capped mountains reflecting on the lakes!

We have stayed in Jasper many times, but never took the short drive to the lakes. I wished we had done it sooner! Pyramid Lake has an island you can explore.

These lakes are lovely, maybe not as see-through as some others around, but very picturesque and a number of facilities around the east-side of the lake

These were frozen over but that didn't mean they weren't worth seeing, lovely, the morning sun was beaming around the mountains which made them even more beautiful...

The trip into Jasper National Park is wonderful in the winter. Pyramid Lake Resort in tucked away in a quite valley, just 5 minutes from the town of Jasper. Lots of short hikes and loads of cross country skiing.

You can take a walking or bike trail from Jasper townsite to both Patricia and Pyramid Lakes. Really well maintained trail and for all ages, downhill all the way down. In the summer, the little beach spots are popular and you can go have small fires, the water is good for swimming and the winter you can go ice skating.

This is one of the lakes on the Jasper Route near the Jasper Village. It does offer a few good photo shoot points but not as good as Athabasca falls or Lake Louise.
