One of my favourite locations to take pictures of mount rundle with the lakes in the foreground.
It's right beside hwy one and just prior to banff townsite and not where it's map position is on trip advisor.

Beautiful lake with plenty of activities like raft rentals and like. We rented one and had a relaxing and peaceful day at the lakes. This lake is just 2 miles from the other popular banff lakes and yet is a nice stop to get away from the crowds in lake louise and still enjoy the serene environment.

Stunning view surrounded with Mountains with couple of miles from Banff.

Enjoy sun set there on shore with rich and colorful grasslands.

Vermilion Lakes, west of Banff, Alberta, provide a stunning view not only of the surrounding mountains (notably the iconic Mount Rundle, seen in these paintings.), but of the rich and colourful grasslands which provide a haven for waterfowl and other wildlife. For photographers and artists, this is an easily accessible yet remarkably private place to see the changing seasons and their evocative colours.

Vermilion lakes are situated just a couple of miles out of the town of Banff. We were there in April and pretty much had the place to ourselves. We sat on the shore of the lakes watching the sun go down over the mountains, we could have been 100's of miles from anybody - serene and relaxing.

This is a great place to pass away a couple of hours although I'm not sure what it would be like when all the summer visitors are in town.
