One of a few sandy beaches nestled amid the Rocky Mountains, Quarry Lake is Canmore's beach and swimming destination. Just be forewarned that like all mountain lakes, the water may not be warm.
This park has picnic tables, benches, and composting toilets for picnickers. There is an off leash dog park and lots of trails nearby for your four legged friends, but dogs aren't allowed in the area around the lake.
The parking lot is paid parking, but if you walk in from further away you can avoid paying for parking.
