Meet the Waterton Family

Meet the local families of Waterton Lakes National Park

What makes this place so unique? Is it the crystal-clear mountain lakes? Is it the charm? There’s no denying that Waterton is special. And part of what makes this quaint little community magical is the warm sense of comfort that envelopes when you arrive. It’s like… coming home. And why not? The folks here are family.

You won’t find many big retail chains here, just small businesses, owned and operated by the people you meet in the stores. They’re the folks you bump elbows with on the streets. They have generations of hospitality in Waterton and they are ready to serve you again in 2020.

Below are the families that make up the Waterton Community. Click on the family name to hear more about their story and generations in Waterton! You can also visit each business page to learn more too!
