Just a short drive from Jasper these lakes are a perfect place for a relaxing stroll in the awesome scenery of the national park. Not far away is Johnson's Lake which is even quieter and has a small sandy beach area and is ideal for children.

Visited here at 8pm. Peaceful and pretty. Walked across the short bridge to the island. Nice view from here. About 10 minute drive from Jasper downtown.

We spent about an hour in this area just driving by and getting out of the car for a few minutes to enjoy both lakes. We enjoyed Pyramid Island and the gorgeous views of Pyramid Mountain. Pyramid mountain is one of the few with rich colors, especially noticeable in the morning to mid afternoon while the sun is shining directly... More

If you have a car and want to see some beauty in Jasper only a short drive away, visit these 2 lakes. You can also hike there from Jasper if you are an avid hiker. You can rent a boat on Pyramid lake, evenings are magical...listen to the call of the loon and take in the beauty of this place!

The lake was beautiful and quiet yet is spoke to my soul. On my visit it rained for a minute and the wind whistled tunes carried by the brisk Rocky Mountain air.

Have been here in winter and much prefer the atmosphere of the island. Again spectacular views with the majesty of the Rockies. We did see a deer on route.

We stayed one night at Patricia Lake Bungalows and couldn't be happier. The cabin was clean, updated, and the grounds were well taken care of. Patricia Lake itself is quite pretty. We took a row boat out in the morning and had the lake to ourselves. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again!

Both Pyramid and Patricia Lakes are often missed by visitors to the park as they are up and behind the town of Jasper. Both locations are beautiful and great locations to go canoeing or kayaking.

Apart from their obvious attractiveness and great scenery, this area offers some good, non-taxing hikes over various lengths. We chose the "Overlooking Trail" which had some amazing views as it traversed the ridge that overlooks the lakes (Route 2b).

our tour director took us to pyramid mountain and lake and it was absolutely breathtaking. It was a gorgeous day and the sun reflecting on the water was magical. A must visit.
