This is another must do drive.
16 ks from Waterton village, following a scenic road, we came to roads end and the beautiful Cameron Lake. The drive itself is lovely, passing by many scenic views plus the National Historic site of western Canada's 1st Oil well. We pulled off now and then to have a look at the rapids in the fast running creek.
Majestic mountain peaks of the Akamina Ridge surround this sub-alpine lake, it really is stunning scenery. You can rent a canoe,[we didn't], how nice would that be in this beautiful setting, and grizzlies are often seen on the far slopes!
We looked through the interpretive center and souvenir shop, [Toilets are located here,] then just sat at one of the picnic tables, and took in the beauty of this area. A Blue Jay settled in a tree near us, so I managed a photo.
At an elevation of 1646 metres, this picturesque alpine lake, not only offers pristine beauty, but fresh, clean air, Birds, Wildlife and wildflowers, and don't forget........... The drive to Cameron Lake is almost as beautiful as being there!
Directions: Drive 16 km along the Akamina Parkway, which is clearly marked just outside the village.
