  • Make sure to go right at the first junction to go to the peninsula. The left has some great views but there's a good bit of scrambling. If you do go left, don't go further along the trail once it star...  read more »
  • This lake is literally hiden before tourists. No signs visible from the road. I assume this is on purpose since I heard there were some injuries in the past. But that is the reason we enjoyed even mor...  read more »
  • Just beautiful!! The color of the water, the cliffs. Peacefulness of the place. The water is a little chilly. Lol 
  • Usually pretty quiet and has great scenery, even on cloudy days. I go up by the cliff jumping and explore the rocks with my dog! Obviously it's extremely cold water. Only swimming on those +30 days.
  • Beautiful Lake with some steep rocky banks. This is where to go if you like cliff diving. There's varying heights to jump from from fun for 6 year olds all the way up to heights only a 20-something invincible person would do. A fun place to visit, but be careful as apparently the Jasper Emergency gets frequent visitors from here.
  • A lake, it was wet and scenic. A little crowded.
  • Great place for cliff jumping and picnics on a hot day in Jasper. Be careful when cliff jumping: people have died from jumping from too high or from a lack of experience and many have been hurt, such as myself (fractured spine). Parks Canada does not suggest cliff jumping. The small cliffs on the west side of the lake are safe where the water is deep enough. Beautiful place and can be a lot of fun, but be smart and stay safe. Enjoy!
  • Amazing!! Can't wait to come back 😄
