“Amazing in the winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We visited early morning just as the sun was waking up. The whole lake was frozen over and some people were out walking there dogs on the ice. The total silence was a bit scary at times, you could even hear the ice cracking and moving. We loved it

“Great in all weathers...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Pop on up to these lakes. Not far out of town, and rather ethereal once there.
Lovely to see the locals taking pride in the environment here.
We visited on a blustry and bright day, it was still beautiful.
Well worth a visit...

“Wonderful morning destination”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

I went here early in the morning. The water was still and reflected the mountains and forests. It was picturesque and a great way to start the morning with a walk around pyramid island.

“Not bad, but let's not get excited”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Perhaps when you have seen so many picturesque lakes and mountains in Alberta, one would no longer be that THRILLED. Again, I would say the place is beautiful and lovely scenery, but no need to get all excited, for canada has TONS of these to offer.

So, only go if you have the time.

Other better alternatives? Visit the Maligne Canyons (a 15min drive away). I've written a review on that! Now, THAT place is worth the visit.

“Beautiful little spots!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We came here and just wandered around the lakes! It was great! I got a few photos and we just explored the area. When we were near Patricia Lake we saw two elk very close up! It was amazing to see a mama and her baby. A great and unique experience.
