It's not easy to add to other reviews published....but surely it helps everyone to keep getting confirmation of just what a gem of a place this is. We stayed in the Grove Suites right alongside the lake. The area is so peaceful and the view across the lake to Pyramid mountain in the morning is spectacular. We had a family of 6 Elk grazing outside our lounge window early one morning - and they even posed for photographs. Patricia Lake is about a 7/8 minute drive from downtown Jasper and it's advisable to take the drive slowly - on our first evening a brown bear strolled casually across the road - haven't they seen the highway code which states quite clearly you should look before crossing the road ! We were there on Canada Day and enjoyed both the lunchtime parade and firework display in the evening downtown. It's obvious that Canadians are not only some of the friendliest people around but they have a great love and respect for their country. Good choice of dining in Jasper and also good food shops - we found an excellent deli selling some great cheeses which were hard to find in the standard stores.
