“Definitely take this boat tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

A great boat trip in such a beautiful place. We loved seeing the park from this perspective and learning some of the history and geography of the lake, park, and town. We got to see a black bear climbing a tree - an extra bonus. Plus we loved getting our passports stamped at the Goat Haunt.

“Waterton Lake - a Special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We stayed just two nights in this beautiful unspoilt 'resort' There are ample hotels and a lovely campground on the edge of the lake.Pleasant strolls,walking trails, driving trails.Bighorn mountain Sheep, Deer and ground squirrels wander freely around. Early morning and evening are the best time to see the wild animals in the area. We even saw a bald eagle here.An enjoyable visit we hope to repeat!

“Wonderful Waterton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Had a fabulous time. Not overly commercial, lots to do, went hiking, horseback riding and driving. appreciate that it has been kept natural.
Best time to go as able to see lots of wildlife. A stroll downtown or to the Cameron Falls (right in town) will allow you to see big horn sheep and deer.
Walk along the paths in town to the pier, and the peace park.
Trails are available for all levels.
