“wonderful view from top of hills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This is a great lake to drive along as you have water on one side and mountains on the other , then a large meadow near the end that usually hosts a large herd of elk towards evening. Sunsets can be spectacular.

“Nature haven!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

As well as the birdlife on the main lake, keep an eye on the small lake on the right as you turn off the main Pincher Creek road towards Waterton (just before the park gates). Sadly lighth was fading fast for us but we were able to watch some beaver swimming about.

“Don't miss the boat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

It's a 200 meter swim across the Bosporus or a 20$ ride across to the other side. 3 departure times only-either way.
