Waterton was the fourth Canadian national park, formed in 1895 and named after Waterton Lake, in turn after the Victorian naturalist and conservationist Charles Waterton. Its range is between the Rocky Mountains and prairies. This park contains 505 km2 (195 sq mi) of rugged mountains and wilderness.
  • Beautiful small town with lots of cool restaurants to eat at. A little expensive but the location is well worth it. World class hiking all around town site.
