Very pretty lake with an excellent trail around the lake if you like an easy walk. Can rent kayaks or other non-powered watercraft.

Love Cameron lake, didn't venture along the trails as we had no bells which warn wildlife. Non motorized watercraft on the lake, rentals available. We saw a young grizzly, we stayed in out car as mom was sure to be near. Love the different smells of the trees, so fresh.

Like Glass!! Amazing early morning canoe and kayak time spent on the lake. We made four previous attempts and it was too windy. The people who work there were super nice and helpful. It took approximately 45 minutes to leisurely get all the way to the snow at the far end on a glassy lake so plan accordingly. We did... More

Liked the view and clean air. Disliked the mosquitoes and the smokers. Also disliked the ill-behaved children.

We came here for a weekend without kids and decided in the last day to drive to Cameron lake. The drive was absolutely breath taking. We rented a paddle boat for an hour. The lake is beautiful! The view is amazing! It was windy and hard to get very far but that was expected. Make sure you bring cash or... More

Our tour guide told us these falls were close to the town and he was right. But they were so hard to find that we had to try three times! We assumed that anything so close would not be very exceptional, but these Falls were lovely. Worth the little search.

We rented a few kayaks and spent about an hour paddling the perimeter. It was lovely. Credit cards are accepted. We had been told cash only.Good to know if you are from the US and don't want to swap out currency.

The lake was still frozen in early June - but it was so quiet and beautiful we were amazed. Beautiful! Then we saw a mother bear and cub on the way back to town for an added bonus!

I was by myself, so rather than hiking along the path when I had already seen several bears, I rented a kayak and paddled myself down to the far end of the lake, following the edge of the lake. It was absolutely breathtaking. I saw so many waterfalls, I can't even count. When I got to the very far edge... More
