Waterton National Park

Waterton 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 tucked into the southwestern corner of the province of Alberta, Canada. In the September 2017 Waterton experienced the Kenow Wildfire which burned over 19,000 hectares in the Park and caused some infrastructure damage. Two notable closures within the Park for 2018 are the Akamina Parkway (16 kms) to Cameron Lake and the Crandell Mountain Campground. For a complete update on the status of trails and roadways in the Park, please visit the Parks Canada website here for updates. The Waterton Townsite is entirely open with a full selection of hotels and restaurants and ice cream shoppes open for the summer season.  Boat trips and watersport rentals are operating from the Townsite.

Enjoy the process of renewal on the landscape after a wildfire - the regrowth this Spring has been impressive to date!
