Waterton Park and area

Hi, coming down 13-18 Sept.

was going to stay in either Waterton, Crowsnest River or Pincher Creek.

We are a couple around 50 and enjoy hiking, BBQ’s , picnics, cycling, music - will there be enough to do?

And would love to stay somewhere unique- not a hotel.

Thanks Tom

Quite a few of the hiking trails in the park suffered extensive damage in the forest fires last summer and are closed to the public this year. But don't let that dissuade you - there are trails that are still open. It's just best not to get your heart set on one particular hike this year.

There isn't a lot of night life in Waterton, it is known primarily as a hiking/outdoor activity type of destination. You may find entertainment at the Bayshore Inn pub some nights, and there is a movie theatre in town. There are bike rentals and surreys available from Pat's in town.

You may enjoy the Crandall Mountain Lodge or the Northland Lodge as these are not your run-of-the-mill type of hotel.

Hey camping girl,

These are both helpful- thanks

Have booked a air bnb on a river and looks great. So will still be in the local area.

Your replies have been helpful and positive unlike some others I’d tried.

Looking forward to it now but still have to push s few more weeks work.

Cheers T

Happy to be of assistance! Enjoy your vacation! We have a lot of fires burning close to the park at this time, so there is a lot of smoke in the area currently. Hopefully, we will receive some rain well before your arrival which will help both with the smoke and with the fires.
