Cameron Lake  

PLEASE NOTE: CAMERSON LAKE IS CLOSED FOR THE SUMMER 2013 SEASON

 

At an elevation of 1646 meters (5400 ft) this picturesque alpine lake offers the pristine beauty of a remote mountain environment and is only a short drive from the Waterton Village.  Getting to Cameron Lake is almost as beautiful as being there.

Drive 16 km (10 miles) along the Akamina Parkway, which is clearly marked just outside the village. Twists and turns in the road will reveal numerous rustic picnic areas.  You will also drive past Oil City - Western Canada's first oil well.  This is a National Historic site.

At the end of this short journey, you will feast your eyes on the stunningly beautiful views of Cameron Lake.  Enjoy a picnic on the shores of this aquamarine wonder, explore the easy hiking trails that skirt the lake or rent a boat or a kayak for an even closer experience.  You'll also have access to convenient services such as washrooms, an interpretive center and a concession/souvenir shop to provide you with what you need for a perfect day in the mountains.
