in Alberta Canada

Waterton is quiet, uncrowded National Park. The Perfect place to view spectacular scenery, wildlife and enjoy outstanding recreational opportunities. Discover nature at its best... Year Round!...

A rare gem, Waterton Lakes National Park is tucked into the southwestern corner of the province of Alberta, Canada.The majestic Rocky Mountains rise suddenly out of the rolling prairies. Amid the peaks are the lakes of Waterton Lakes National Park, carved out of the rock by ancient glaciers. Waterton Lakes National Park borders Glacier National Park in Montana to the south, together making up the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the first of its kind in the world. A place like no other, the uniqueness of Waterton Park is a blend of unusual geology, mild climate, rare wild flowers, and an abundance of wildlife. It is a scene which has remained unchanged for centuries.

Cameron Falls in the Center of Waterton Village

Managed cooperatively as the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Waterton contains a more extensive road system, more prairie land and more easily found lowland wildlife than Glacier. The Waterton-Glacier complex was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1995, for the ecological diversity of the northern forests, the prairies and the Rockies in the narrowest spot in the Rocky Mountain chain.

One definitely won't run out of photo opportunities in Waterton Lakes. There are lakes on the prairie with the mountains reflected in them, lush forests, towering mountains and abundant wildlife. Take a special look at Red Rock Parkway. This road starts close to Waterton Village and follows Blakiston Creek. You'll find many landscape opportunities along the way, including the namesake Red Rock Canyon at the end of the road, and Lost Horse Creek, about midway. Lost Horse Creek looks a lot like Red Rock Canyon, but is much smaller. The main attraction here, at least in the fall, is the large number of bears feeding on berries along the road. And the elk put on quite a show if you are around at the end of Sept. first of Oct.

Moose on Red Rock Parkway

The Akamina Parkway is an interesting location to photograph as well and travels through a more forested region of the park. Be prepared for forest birds and intriguing Cameron Lake at the end of the road. This lake appears to abruptly end in a mountain wall, creating a beautiful but somewhat unusual image.

Visiting Waterton any time of the year will be a very enjoyable time, depending on what activities you are interested in. Winter requires skill, however, as all the trails traverse avalanche-prone areas, and the park recommends that you not take these trails unless you're experienced at evaluating the risk. Autumn is an especially good time to travel to the park. The berries will be ripe along the roads and the bears will be fattening up for the winter.
