We always visit these lakes when we come to Jasper! This was different visiting in the spring with the lakes still frozen the views are amazing. The little island in pyramid lake is a nice little walk good for the whole family and wheelchair accessible. Our 2 toddlers had fun. Definitely a must see and it's free!

No reason to not check these two lakes out, they make beautiful pictures. Road is on the back side of town, will take you up the mountain, maybe a 15 min drive up. Keep driving on the road til it ends, the last stop will be the one that has the trail out to the highly photographed Pyramid Lake Island.... More

Worth a visit, although lakes were frozen still very impressive. Car park and outhouses available. Great views back towards the mountains, worth a walk to a small island with a bridge across.

Right after the Pyramid lake resort there is a small parking lot on the left hand side which will take you to a small walk around Pyramid island. There is a small wooden bridge which was quite nice. The walk is quite short but the views of Pyramid Mountain the lake and other mountains is truly stunning.

Great Lakes to kayak on! Beautiful clear water right in the middle of the mountains. Gorgeous! Recommend for all types of day use. There are also hiking trails nearby.

Visited with the family on a quiet day - we were the only people on the island - so great photo opportunities on the bridge and on the island beaches. Very easy to access the island - straight from the parking area, and you can walk around the island in twenty minutes, so good for unaccomplished hikers like us. Great... More

This is a gem of a place. Once parked up we walked across a bridge and wandered around the island taking photos. The island was very quiet as we visited in April.

Pyramid and Patricia lakes are nice mountain lakes. Pyramid Lake has a resort/hotel on it as well as a boat/kayak rental which operates in summer. Lake itself is too cold for swimming though even in late summer.
