It's even better than you imagine. Lots of parking and a flat walk about the lake. We did this with our 4 year old and they loved it. We also went out in a canoe rental on the lake. Amazing pictures.

What a beautiful lake. Such a canadian icon. The pictures don't do it justice. I visited in April and we were able to walk out on the ice. So magical.

Traveled there in 2010. Lovely Lake. Calm water. The view is fantastic and lots of shops are available for the Tourist to take advantage of.

Beautiful place for a winter stroll, skate, climb or sleigh ride. It is busy but there's a reason for it.

We hiked the Plain of the Six Glaciers and LOVED it. Be sure to take cash for the teahouse at the top. Check the hotel for a spa.
