Fall & Winter in Waterton

Things to do in Waterton this fall and winter.

Waterton in fall and winter is ideal for the real "rejuvinators" interested in unplugging and re-connecting with oneself and loved ones. Most of the businesses are boarded up but don’t let that deter you— through these cooler months, you really get to feel like you own the town and can always find more.

  • More Space, Less Crowds- Enough said!
  • More wildlife, less cars- Although amazing to watch, please remember to practice wildlife safety
  • More colors- Those beautiful fall colors start to pop!
  • More savings- Off season rates are available in the fall and winter!

Waterton creates an experience of solitude as the former busy streets once filled with vehicles and visitors are now occupied by wildlife, the real locals of the park. There are many unique vantage points to soak up fall in Waterton, please read below to learn about our top recommended activities and businesses that are currently open.**

Please note: There are no available gas stations or grocery stores in Waterton in the fall and winter season. Please ensure your re-fuel and bring groceries! There are two restaurants open and ready to serve.
