The climax of a 16 km (10 mile) scenic highway known as the Akamina Parkway, is Cameron Lake. Nestled between the majestic mountain peaks of the Akamina Ridge, this sub-alpine lake is one of many serene bodies of water that makes up Waterton Lakes National Park. Beautiful Cameron lake is a great place to rent a canoe and grizzlies are often seen on the far slopes.

The smoke from nearby forest fires was really heavy, so I can't really speak to how beautiful the lake is. However, it seemed to be a good place to rent a canoe to explore.

I have some great pictures of my family jumping into this cold mountain lake! Our family enjoyed our vacation here. Gorgeous scenery. The mountains, lakes, and creeks were breathtaking. Anyone who visits Glacier Nat. Park in Montana should cross the border and enjoy this park. There were a lot of hiking trails for the whole family.

Lovely drive along to the this lake with great views. We saw a black bear at the side of the road and he walked right by us! We took on of the hikes out towards the end of Cameron Lake and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a very busy little car park as lots of people like to picnic and... More

Very pretty. Everyone was in a hurry, speed limit posted, but most people were speeding. This is something the park should consider monitoring.

Beautiful, calm, peaceful lake with hiking trails, campground, picnic sights, and non-motorized boating. Amazing scenery and we saw various wildlife on the short drive from our hotel.

This was great - we rented canoes and kayaks and had a wonderful time exploring the lake. It took a little over an hour to paddle around the perimeter of the lake. The kids working at the boat rental shop were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful lake.

It was raining when we drove out there, but it looks like it would be great on a good day. Very peaceful with lots of watercraft to rent.

This is definitely one of the most beautiful lake in Alberta. The drive to this destination makes this even more beautiful. On the way to the lake there are multiple stop overs where one can take some good photos. We went on a weekday and so it was less crowded and the lake appeared very peaceful. I am not sure... More
