We took a boat tour on Waterton Lake and the Prince of Wales Hotel looks beautiful from the lake. We were given information and history about the town and lake. We wanted to take one of several hikes at the dock at the end of the lake, but because of the fires there, we were only able to stop for... More

Not really a site on its own. It leads to the rest of the park which has a few things to see and do. Mostly for camping and hiking and closed for the winter as roads can be unaccessible after October 1st some years

The view is spectacular! Apparently it's very windy there everyday, which it was when we were there (up on the hill by the Prince of Wales Hotel), but it wasn't cold. The village is small and crazy busy! Well worth going to see it!

You can't go wrong here. Enjoy a boat tour, hike in the area or just enjoy the scenery by walking along the level paved walkway.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever been! The lake is pristine, the air is crisp (even in August), it's uncrowded, and we even had snow!
