Overview

The climax of a 16 km (10 mile) scenic highway known as the Akamina Parkway, is Cameron Lake. Nestled between the majestic mountain peaks of the Akamina Ridge, this sub-alpine lake is one of many serene bodies of water that makes up Waterton Lakes National Park. Beautiful Cameron lake is a great place to rent a canoe and grizzlies are often seen on the far slopes.

Visit this beautiful lake. Very charming and picturesque. Go early to avoid many tourists. Nice drive on Akima Parkway to get there with interesting sites such as first oil well in western Canada. Many hiking trails off parkway.

We visited Cameron Lake (this is where the famous Akamina Parkway ends) a couple of times during our 2-day stay in Waterton. The drive is good but the reward at the end is this beautiful gem of a lake cradled by the surrounding mountains. Try...More

Yes. The new facilities are all ADA compliant. There is a nice level trail along the lake.

There are some picnic tables in the area. It would be a good idea to take something to sit on for your picnic too, as this is a very busy place right now, especially at weekends.
