Cameron Lake is located in Waterton Lakes National park and stretches 2.5 kilometers just hovering between the Canadian/U.S. border. The water is clear and cold, fed by melting ice and snow, and reaches depths of 125 feet. It was stocked between 1921 and 1974 and continues to sustain a population of Brook Trout and Rainbow Trout. Fishing is fair and the average size of fish are modest, however anglers have pulled fish in the upwards of 5 pounds. Shore access is very limited and fishing is best accessed by a boat.
Cameron Lake is well equipped with boat rentals, and a small snack and tackle shop where you can purchase your Waterton Lakes National Park fishing license. They even provide rods and reels and all the tackle you might need to go out. There is also a viewing deck with binoculars that lookout to the south end of the lake where grizzly bears commonly hang out. This lake is an outdoor adventurists dream and is a must see if you visit Waterton Lakes National Park.
