Limited availability of activities and services
With the exception of the village of Waterton, all front-country and back-country areas (including trails and water access) are closed and being assessed for safety hazards due to the on-going Kenow Fire.
All Parks Canada events and activities in the Waterton Lakes National Park are on hold until further notice.
In the village of Waterton, visitors may access Cameron Falls and Cameron Bay Day-Use Area.
Four washrooms are open - at the playground, Cameron Falls, Heritage Centre and Firehall. Some picnic areas and shelters and the playground are also available in the village. At this time, camping is not permitted in the Townsite Campground, nor the Pass Creek winter campsite.
Visitors can get information from the information desk at the Parks Canada Operations Building from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week.
You are advised to bring basic necessities, such as water and food.
Businesses may open as soon as business owners have ensured that their locations are safe and are staffed to provide services to the public. Due to the seasonal nature of the Waterton townsite, some businesses may choose to remain closed for the remainder of the season. Please call ahead to ensure the business you wish to visit is open.
