Waterton Lakes National Park Swimming

On the very hottest summer days in Waterton Lakes National Park, swimming is possible in the waters of Emerald Bay, on the edge of the town, but be aware that the water is very cold and the lake floor drops away quickly.

The only other option is the Waterton Fitness Centre, part of the Waterton Lakes Lodge (corner of Windflower Ave. and Cameron Falls Rd., 403/859-2151), which has an indoor heated pool. Hotel guests enjoy free access while nonguests are also welcome for $10 per person.
