This fascinating lake is well worth a visit, especially during the fall and winter months when it is no longer a blue-green lake, filled with fish, but rather a mudflat! The lake disappears - the water, drained out through a large underground cave system, resurfaces 16kms downstream. This happens each year! It was interesting to see the animal tracks criss-crossing the mudflats. There was also an eagle's nest in the trees (take binoculars) along the shore which survived the fires which ravaged the area. There are informative display boards near the car park providing details of the area.

Quite a lovely lake. But the lighting needs to work out; otherwise everything looks washed out. We also came and it appears to be low water.

It's easy to pull over and view this lake on the way to one of the more spectacular sites such as Maligne Lake. It's pretty but I would plan my day around this stop.

We know this lake ‘empties’ in the late summer but we stopped off here for a view and sadly most of the water had already gone. I’m sure it’s stunning normally but we just didn’t get to see it!

While on the way back Maligne Canyon & Cruise we stopped along to see. With its history we were lucky to see it still with water. Part has already drained with only 1/2 still with water. Quick stop areas.

We did the turn out before official parking lot.I feel like the view was better and fun to climb on big rocks out to water!! Beautiful even on a smoky day.

Absolutely wonderful place to visit. The road around the Lake is one of the best we've driven with many chances to see the Lake and Mountains. We were so lucky to see a Bear swimming across the Lake and a Group of Big Horn Sheep grazing in one of the car parks there. Will never forget our visit there.

I liked this lake on the drive up to Maligne Lake. It was deserted when we got there and spotted some wildlife (still not certain what it is). It's beautiful and lacking the hordes of Maligne lake. Worth a stop for a photo.

This lake is a must see on your drive up to the maligne lake . This lake is sadly disappearing but it won’t disappoint. The colour of the lake with the mountains are a highlight. Would recommend this stop for a great photo

We didn't get a chance to stop at this lake as it was on the road to our Maligne Lake River Cruise and we were short on time. However, the view from the car was absolutely incredible and would definitely recommend stopping for pictures.
