This was a beautiful placid lake just outside of Jasper. Few people. Calm lake, washrooms and ample parking. A great escape from tourists. It is very near Lake Edith that is similar, except at Annette they had paddle board rentals as well.

No, this is not Louise, Moraine, Maligne, or even Medicine Lake, but it, and close by Edith Lake, are beautiful in their own right. Blue and set against the mountains, if you missed them, you will regret it.

Annette Lake looked like a less visited lake but it was just a pretty. A family of Caribou walked right across the parking lot while we were there.

Maligne Canyon draws the big crowd, but if you go to the right when you enter the area you can stop at Edith and Annette. Both are very tranquil, serene areas where you can enjoy the views without the crowds. Watch for bears though, its...More

The lake is just off the road to lake Buevart. A nice and quiet place. There is also a jetty placed conveniently if one wants to go swimming in warmer weather.

The trail is sealed with bitumen, and over a metre wide. It is about 2 kilometres long, and suitable for wheelchairs. The water is many shades of blue into green, and trees are right to the water line. There are toilets, a small launching place...More

Best place to cool off! We cycled here from town. Beautiful easy path and then jumped into the icy water. On a hot day there will be lots of people there but is lots of beach space so not too crowded. Incredible backdrop for photos.

What a stunner. Lovely loop walk around the lake, its so tranquil, there is also a little beach where families bring picnics. We walked the woodpecker trail and saw a bald Eagle. Brilliant.

Yup. Water is cold, but a lot of people kayak or canoe in the lake.

No, I wouldn’t do that with potential wild animal encounter. As well, it’s probably an hour walk, however biking would be very nice.

yes, there is parking, picnic tables and trailers spaces there, but I think there are a lot of crowds there on summer, don't know if the parking is enough then... it was pretty empty in the end of May.
