It's situated in beautiful Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, overlooking Lower Kananaskis Lake. The goal of this facility is to connect people of all abilities, all ages and all cultures to recreational opportunities in nature.

After being closed for two years to accommodate renovations and accessibility upgrades, William Watson Lodge reopened in June 2022.
