Cameron Falls, Waterton Lakes National Park

4.3
#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.

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.
