Enjoy two nights of car-camping and a day hiking Crypt Lake, or meet us at the trailhead for a full day of hiking.


Jorinda and Kim will be finishing a backpacking trip in the area Friday the 27th, car-camping at Waterton Springs Campground and then taking the first boat to the trailhead to Crypt Lake at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday. We will return on the 5:30 boat back to Waterton. The pace must allow us to return to the boat on time.

For those who would like to camp the night before and after the Crypt Lake hike, we will be staying at Waterton Springs Campground (reservations are required):
