The Waterton Lake wildfire is now 100% contained, and is considered “under control”.

The fire burned approximately 25 acres on the slopes of Campbell Mountain, on the west side of Upper Waterton Lake in Glacier National Park.

Parks Canada crews will continue to patrol the fire area and extinguish any hot spots.

As of August 22, all trail closures associated with this fire have been removed, but fire crews are still working in the area. Please be careful when walking on the Lakeshore Trail between Boundary Bay and Goat Haunt, and do not disturb any of the fire fighting equipment in the area.

The Pass Creek Day use area remains closed, as it is being used as a camp for the fire crews.
