Just across the road! Don't miss it. You can go there for a canoe ride or a hike. Be warn though, there's not trees so the sun is heavy on you!

There is so much to see in Kananaskis, that I have always driven by areas like Barrier Lake for years. However on November 4th I stopped in to visit the area. It was a super windy day, and there were only a couple of people at the lake, but more people in the parking lot, so my timing was perfect. There are some nice views here, as well as a 7.7 km trail hike. I hear the lake is often used for kayaking and canoeing during the summer, so I will likely return next summer to check it out.

This glacial fed lake is a wonderful spot to use a kayak/canoe/SUP that you bring or rent onsite. It is also a beautiful spot to picnic with a family, go on hikes but no swimming the water is too chilly. Go early in the busy seasons as it can get really full by early afternoon especially on the weekends.

This is a nice stop right off the highway. Lots of parking. When we were there it had a kayak, paddle board rental trailer there. Not crowded as the lake has a huge almost sandy shoreline. Kids were swimming in the water. Great for a picnic!

The map for this attraction is wrong, so let's hope Tripadvisor changes it. There are a few spots on Barrier Lake that you can enjoy the water and scenery. The first one you see on your way in from the Trans Canada Highway, has increased its parking capacity, so if you can find a spot, you're lucky. There are other options further along that have fewer parking stalls, but are also less well known, so they are worth exploring. On our recent visit, the lake had an emerald green colour similar to Lake Louise. If you can find decent parking, the lake is huge and you can find a spot just for yourself. CAUTION: Alberta Park recommends taking your own toilet paper and hand sanitizer as it cannot guarantee these are available in their pit toilets.
