Great 5km round trip snow shoe trail. Wide and lots of room for the skiers and snowshoers. Some elevation gain, but a beautiful view is the reward at the end.

Nice little lake after a very steep road that was more fun to drive than the visit to the lake. Drove it twice just for fun!! Lake very similar to Lake Louise and everyone from the local area was either snowshoeing or cross-country skiing the trails. But way to many people since it was the only area that you could... More

The lake is in a beautiful setting in the mountains, and it is easy to drive to from Waterton, so worth the visit. It isn't a place you would spend a great deal of time, didn't see much in the way of walking trails or such, so you can fit something else in your day.

As mountain parks go, Waterton Lakes is relatively small and easy to get around in. The drive from the townsite to Cameron Lake is relatively short and quite scenic with a number of hikes along the way. The vegetation around the lake is more lush than many other parts of the park, giving the area a different feel. There are... More

If you are visiting Waterton between April and August, this is something you don't want to miss. Lovely hiking trail all around, and beautiful waters for kayaking.

The Cameron fall is very close to the waterton village and it is very nice fall. It is not one of the wonders but certainly worth a peek. It has benches near the fall where you can sit relax and watch the fall. We took subways with us and sat there and ate. Was like a picnic. The lake is... More

While this falls is not that fantastic, still one has to see it and just have another sight to see. It has quite a few visitors. But according to our guide the lake is beautiful after the rain when the water turns like a tomato soup, pinkish because of the sulphur content which was really quite a sight if it... More

Last year we took kayaks across the lake to the glaciers on the other side. It was a perfect day - I wish we had taken a picnic with us. The wind came up on our way back and we struggled to get back - be careful. We really wanted to replicate that day again this year - but the... More
