a 30 minute drive to the lake where you can almost hike to the end and the US border. Need to stop as Grizzly bears are feeding past the no go zone. food available (snacks) at the visit center. as well as canoe rentals and those fishing caught fish.

This is a nice lake to kayak or canoe on. If you have time you can walk around the lake. The boats are closed now until next summer, but it is a fun thing to do. The Lake is beautiful

They had paddle boats, both feet paddle and oars. My husband and I used the foot paddle boats. We had a great time. The scenery is breathtaking. It was a gorgeous day. We were there the first week in September. No fishing allowed after 9/1. My husband was disappointed about this. Please drive down to the lake . It is... More

What a beautiful area to visit. I had no idea this area was so close to town. A Park Ranger told us we should take the drive and I am so glad we did.

Walking trails, lakeside activities, remote and quiet. Alpine forest. Easy to drive to. Visit can be a two hour or 10 hour hiking experience.

Unfortunately or maybe fortunately, we didn't see any bear. We went early in the morning and thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Wild flowers were abundant. The lake is lovely. There are nice restroom and picnic facilities. You can rent canoes and kayaks though we opted no to. We saw a moose on the road on the way to the lake. There... More

Drive down the Akamina Parkway and you come to Cameron Lake. Out of the woods and into a big parking lot with the most beautiful lake and mountain scenery one could ask for. Not only that there were paddle boats, kayaks and canoes to rent and a small concession selling water etc. We had brought our lunch and sat on... More

We went there three times during our stay and we could not get enough of the view. I suggest to go early in the morning when the water is still calm and together with the fog that might occur you will have an unforgettable experience. Do the trail on the shore, it is a nice easy hike with some great... More

In the land of very beautiful glacial lakes, this is just one among many. Fairly easy to find, nice hikes off of it. If you have the time, go ahead and take the drive to it. If you are tight on time, this is one among many. Having said that, be sure to make one of the glacial lakes in... More

Beautiful, blue and crystal clear lake surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery. Who could as for more? We rented a kayak, walked the lake trail and picnicked. Uncrowded and unspoiled.
