Cameron Falls, Waterton Lakes National Park

4.1
#4 of 6 in Nature in Waterton Lakes National Park
Head to Cameron Falls and witness an attractive waterfall surrounded by majestic cliffs and lush vegetation. A short, paved path from Waterton Village brings you to excellent views of the scenic cascades tumbling over 1.5 billion-year-old Cambrian rock. Stand close to feel the sprinkling mist. Don't forget your camera; these picturesque falls are among the park's most photographed landmarks for good reason. If you love the area, consider a hike along the 19 km (11.8 mi) trail leading between Cameron Lake and the village.

  • Nice waterfall that's located in town so if you don't want to hike this waterfall is for you. It's quite nice. Something to see. Quite busy though.  more »
  • If you're staying in town you can walk or drive to it. Some days they have a park ranger and it's fun for children to touch and hold items. Lovely backdrop for photos  more »
  • A pretty but smaller waterfall with very easy access, no hiking required at all. However it attracts lots of people.  more »

Best things to do in Waterton Lakes National Park

Where to stay in Waterton Lakes National Park

You can't stay in the heart of Waterton Lakes National Park, so your best bet is to base yourself in the township of Waterton and head on day trips from there. This can be difficult if you're on a budget, as the majority of accommodations in Waterton are resorts, hotels, and suites catering to a luxury-seeking clientele. If you're prepared to battle it out against nature, you can make your trip more affordable by pitching a tent at a local campsite. Make your reservations well in advance if visiting between May and September.
