Some of the most beautiful lakes we saw on a road trip of the National Parks in the area. Great for those who enjoy canoes, kayaks, etc.

After a a full trip to Banff/Jasper, this (and Yoho NP) stand out as my favorite visit. I saw this as more "hands on" for my young teens, meaning there was more to do than hikes and views -- which you know is important if you have young teens. The big grassy bluff of the Prince of Wales Lodge is... More

The view of Waterton Lake from the Prince of Wales hotel is spectacular! You can sit on the bluff and enjoy the breeze and the view.

It was a wonderful "flashback" experience, to the younger years of my life. We traveled through the northern parts of the US, but not the southern parts of the US,...until the family members got married to spouses that came from the southern states....

2 and 1/2 hour boat ride is excellent----3rd tome did it---with daughter this time. Pick a good day because it can be windy--also bring jacket and hat.
