Love Abraham Lake. We camped there in the summer, but haven't seen it in the winter.

Only thing is you have to pay for a park pass (unless you go this year) if you take the banff route. If you go up through rocky mountain house it's faster and you can avoid that $20.

Banff route is a lot more scenic though...worth it if you haven't driven it before.

Even more worth it in the winter. The frozen waterfalls everywhere are spectacular
