Waterton Lakes National Park is open year round.

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 Fire Hall and Cameron Falls.

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