My husband and I rode out to both lakes just after arriving in Jasper and setting up at Whistler's Campground. The lakes are so peaceful and lovely. There's a small island at Pyramid Lake accessible by a short footbridge. We just sat and took in the beautiful views of the lakes and Pyramid Mountain behind them.

We did a hike at the end of the road to pyramid lake. On the top of the mountain, we had a good view of town of Jasper and lakes nearby. The view was great.

beautiful Lakes and so close together! Both lakes are just a short drive from Jasper Town Site and well worth the drive! Drive past Patricia Lake, go a little further to Pyramid Lake and drive all the way around to the far side of Pyramid Lake and you will see a little path to a bridge. Cross the bridge to... More

We where at Pyramid lake for dinner. The food is what you make yourself, but the dinnerspot is the best in the world. Our campground didn't allow a campfire at our spot, so why arrive early? We decided to park our RV at the shore. Prepared a wunderfull diner and sat at the most wunderfull dinersite you can imagine. Some... More

Walked trail out of Jasper and planned route to incorporate the two lakes. Pleasant scenery but not a wow factor.

The Pyramid lake resort has a restaurant and place to hire canoes etc. Pyramid island is just a bit further on and lovely... More

Visit early to see native species of deer Red squirrels supping sap from the trees, lake trout rising to lacewings. Visit late to see Pyramid mountain standing majestically with its fools gold reflecting the sun.

The drive is not far out of Jasper and it was an easy afternoon stroll and very quaint to see. Also found a riding stable on the way out and we went riding the next day.

These were two of the most beautiful lakes we visited during our three trip around BC and Alberta. The first time we visited was on a overcast, windy day. The lakes were still lovely and the surroundings spectaular and atmospheric, bit it was the next morning when we visited very early without other people and in beautiful calm and sunny... More

The beauty of these lakes comes from the stillness of the water in this area, and the reflections that come from that same water. Natural beauty at its finest.
