Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Quick and easy to get to, these lakes are worth a visit if you are in Jasper. They are just a few kilometres along Pyramid Lake Road to the north of the township. Subalpine forests and rocky mountain peaks create a stunning background for these two beautiful lakes. The reflection of Pyramid Mountain in the waters of Patricia Lake is a photo worth snapping! The highlight of Pyramid Lake is a walk across the bridge to Pyramid Island. The lakes are a hub for a variety of recreational activities including camping, picnicking, hiking, boating, and swimming.

    My wife was poking around on websites during our stay in Jasper looking for backup things in case it was raining on our last morning. My trip preparations had focused on the major, exclusively outdoor activities, and I hadn't even run across this one. The rain mostly held off, but we still had some time and opted to visit this place.

    The museum is located on the northwest side of Jasper, just beyond a large complex of their public schools. They have a large parking lot (free) adjacent to the museum which they may share with other local public buildings (it looked like there was an indoor public pool across the street).

    When we entered, the only staffer on duty gave a stock speech about admission being free but donations were accepted in several forms, etc. After that (and donating), you are free to explore. Most of the exhibits are in a large loop. The timeline of the town proceeds clockwise. There are some artifacts, maps, sketches, and photos on the wall. Each exhibit covers some topic that was relevant at the specific time-period and this gives a good overall impression of how things developed in the area.

    I don't think it is the sort of place you'd need to go back to multiple times, but it was worth a stop.

    Certainly one of the best experiences we’ve had so far on our Canada vacation. From start to finish we felt welcome, safe and, most importantly, we had lots of fun!
    The scenery is second to none, and the river rafting route was so beautiful. Mountains and rafting together, what’s not to love! Strongly recommend.
    Biggest shout out goes to Josh who was our rafter. He captained the raft wonderfully, made it fun, gave us interesting facts about the surrounding country side and also made us laugh because he created a fun environment. Jordan who ran the trip was also tip top, making us feel welcome at the top and provided comprehensive safety guidance. Final compliment goes to Maxime in the office who made our day by helping us swap our session. Without her help and kindness we wouldn’t have experienced this memorable afternoon.

    We decided to book a private tour with Joe after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed. Great communication before the tour with Patti and Joe picked us up from our hotel at Pyramid lake as had been arranged. He is so knowledgeable about the wildlife and very passionate about his heritage, and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to him and learned so much about his indigenous culture and the wildlife in the area. He knew exactly the places to take us to see bears, eagles, elk, coyote and much more. we would thoroughly recommend taking a tour with Joe, one of our favourite days of our holiday.
