History of Maligne Lake

The National Historic Sites and Monuments Board (NHSMB) has now added the Maligne Lake Chalet and Guest House to the illustrious, though short, list of National Historic Sites in Jasper National Park. The recent determination by the NHSMB that the Maligne Lake buildings are of national significance rests in the prominent role played by these log structures in the national parks of Canada and too, are illustrative of the central role of outfitters, guides and the competing interests of the railways in park development.

Rustic maligne lake buildings were originally constructed by Jasper’s premier Guide and Outfitter, Fred Brewster and the Canadian National Railway in 1927. When the maligne lake buildings were first constructed they were surrounded by tents and hard roofed guest cabins. The backcountry Maligne lodge rivaled the Jasper Park Lodge as the largest and most luxurious park accommodation at the time. The architectural form of this maligne lake lodge as well as its function were classic examples of a "golden era" of National Parks.

In 2011, these Maligne Lake buildings received a million dollar rehabilitation that carefully restored the structures to their former glory. Once again accessible to the public, the Maligne Lake site showcases traditional National Park culture.

Jasper Spirit Island

Spirit Island was named by the Stoney Nation indigenous people for the experiences their ancestors had at Maligne lake, centuries ago. Spirit Island is a tiny grove of trees and pristine nature separated from the mainland by an isthmus. Spirit Island becomes a true island on Maligne lake for a few short days during the summer.

The attraction of Spirit Island is the backdrop.. impressive mountain peaks and glaciers circling the south end of Maligne Lake, along with deep turquoise water color not present at the North end of the lake. A short path forms a loop from the docks to viewing points overlooking Spirit Island. To preserve the area in its natural state, walking onto Spirit Island is not permitted.
