Looking for a lake near Jasper to let the kids cool down in was quite the chore as we didnt want to travel to far out of Jasper. We quickly settled on Pyramid Lake as it was closest. We found one of many open bbq pits and set up day camp. After a quick meal we took the kids to the beach where they enjoyed swimming in the cool mountain water and I took pictures of there swim with a stunning mountainous background. We loved it so much we took the kids a second time during our short stay. I highly recommend this beautiful lake to anyone who just wants to enjoy a quite day at the beach.
