Interlake's Campground Peter Lougheed Provincial Park Kananaskis Country.
Interlake's campground is located approximately 156km south west of the city of Calgary in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, Kananaskis country. There are 48 campsites that are available on a first come first serve basis. The campground fills fast on weekends due to it's close proximity to the City of Calgary. This campground offers large well treed campsites for both tents and larger RV's, water, dry toilets, picnic tables and fire pits. Dry firewood is available here for a fee. This is bear country, food and food related items must be stored properly. The Interlake's campground runs along the south shore of Lower Kananaskis Lake. 25 of the 48 campsites are located right on the lake front and are absolutely beautiful. Views of the lake and the surrounding valley will keep you mesmerized. Boaters can leave a small boat on shore right in front of their campsite. There are several trails located in the area along with an extensive scenic paved bike path system. You can ride a bike around this entire area. There is a lot to explore here, the Upper Kananaskis Lake is a short walk away. Both lakes have very nice picnic areas with picnic tables located close to the lakes edge.
The Upper Kananaskis Lake has a well groomed hiking trail around the entire lake that offers beautiful views of Mount Lyautey, Mount Sarrail, Mount Foch and Mount Fox. Trailheads to Rawson Lake, Elbow Lake, Elbow Lake to Elbow Loop, Hidden Lake, Kananaskis Fire Lookout, Fossil Falls, Astor Lake and Three Isle Lake are located at the Upper Kananaskis Lake. Both the Upper and Lower Kananaskis Lakes have excellent boat launches for both power boats and small water craft such as canoes. Canoeing the Upper or Lower lakes on a calm summers evening would be an unforgettable experience. There are Rainbow Trout, Cutthroat Trout and Bull Trout in both the lakes. You'll need a fishing license to try out your luck. William Watson Lodge is located a few kms east of here. The lodge was created to provide equal access to this beautiful area for people of all abilities and provides 1st class accommodations for seniors and those with disabilities. I tip my hat to Jean Lougheed who thought of creating this Lodge and her husband Peter Lougheed who made it happen. Boulton Creek campground, Lower Lake Campground, Canyon Creek campground, Elkwood campground, Mount Sarrail campground and Point Back Country Campground are all located near here.
