As of June 1, Waterton Lakes National Park began a gradual reopening of some outdoor areas, facilities and services. Please check our website regularly for the current status of this location and others

Waterton Lakes National Park is offering visitor access and basic services.

Our peak season is in the summer months. If you are planning to visit during these months, especially in July and August, be sure to plan ahead.

From November to April, most facilities in the townsite are closed. Heated washrooms and running water are available at the Firehall and Cameron Falls.

Visitor centre

Parks Canada is operating a temporary visitor centre in Waterton townsite. Note

Our visitor centre offers park information, maps, brochures, permits, backcountry reservations, weather information, trail, avalanche and road reports, and information on interpretive exhibits and events.

Visitors can purchase park passes from the visitor centre and park gate.
