Waterton Lakes National Park


The prairies of Alberta meet the peaks of the Rocky Mountains in Waterton Lakes National Park. Clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, rainbow-coloured streams, colourful rocks and mountain vistas await hikers and sightseers. With an exceptional diversity of wildlife and wildflowers and a cozy little waterfront town to serve as a home base, Waterton packs a big natural punch into a relatively small and accessible area.

The general public can bring horses into the park and ride in areas unburned by the Kenow Wildfire, plus some additional areas

Park regulations


  • At all times, pets must be kept on a leash or in suitable confinement.

  • Don’t leave your pet unattended in a vehicle, on your campsite, or anywhere else, during your visit to Waterton Lakes National Park. Wildlife, weather, and an unfamiliar environment can be scary or dangerous for your pet.

  • Don’t allow your pet to chase any wild animal - it’s illegal and dangerous.

  • Pets are not allowed in some areas. Look for notices at trailheads and info centres to find out where these restrictions are.

  • Remember to clean up after your pet.

  • Service animals are welcome, in the company of their handlers. Please keep service animals on a leash or harness during your visit.



  • Clean your equipment: Check your gear and footwear for any seeds, mud, or plant material before and after coming to the park.

  • Brush your boots: Use boot brushes, or boot-brushing stations to remove plant material after using hiking trails.

  • Scoop your poop. Put manure back in your trailer at parking areas.
