Rock Lake Lodge is a full-service lodge with four private cabins located in Rock Lake Provincial Park Alberta. We are minutes away from the mouth of the Willmore Wilderness Park and a short day trip from both William A. Switzer Provincial Park and Jasper National Park.
Tekarra Lodge's guest cabins are quaint and unique in design, offering relaxation as well as a host of amenities and the plush comforts of home. Songbirds and a stunning mountain view greet you each morning from the porch of your cabin. Take a quick stroll to the ridge, sit back and listen to the soothing sounds of the rushing water and enjoy mountain scenery that has inspired artists, poets and the countless guests who have taken pleasure from this special place.
This quiet location is tucked away from the ‘busy’ town site of Jasper and allows for excellent opportunities for wildlife sightings while enjoying your peaceful vacation. A mix of modern and traditional log cabins, Pocahontas Cabins are situated at the base of the Miette Hot Springs road on the Yellowhead Highway 16, thirty minutes east of the Jasper town site. Take a refreshing dip in their heated outdoor swimming pool in summer, or relax in our hot tub in winter, while you reflect on your day’s journeys through the stunning Jasper National Park.

The Canmore Folk Music Festival is the longest running folk music festival in Alberta. Adhering to a philosophy and legacy of folk, world, blues and roots music, the festival since 1978 has attracted up to 21,000 music fans annually. Taking place over three days of the Heritage Day long weekend in August, the festival features 30+ individual acts or performers, family-friendly site, a free downtown concert on festival Friday evening, a kids’ area jammed with crafts, puppets, music, storytelling and a climbing wall. Its venue is the downtown Centennial Park in the heart of Canmore’s valley bottom. Surrounded on all sides by the majestic Rocky Mountains, the backdrop of breathtaking scenery merely enhances the incredible music pouring forth from four stages all weekend long. The workshop stages partner up eclectic mixtures of musicians from disparate and diverse backgrounds, often resulting in that ephemeral “lightning in a bottle” sound that will never be recreated.
