Barrier Lake is a man made reservoir at the north end of Kananaskis Country in Alberta, Canada.

Highway 40 runs between the lake and Mount Baldy, on the eastern shore. It is entirely located in the Bow Valley Provincial Park.

Barrier Lake was created for hydroelectric power generation on the Kananaskis River, the dam that holds the lake back is at the north end of the lake.

The lake is also used for recreational activities, with hiking paths surrounding the lake (and cross-country skiing trails in the winter). A visitor centre is located on the eastern shore.1 Two day-use areas, Barrier Dam and Barrier Lake, are maintained by Alberta Community Development. The Jewell Bay Backcountry Campground is established 4 km (2 mi) from the dam. Water-skiing is permitted on the lake, but is rarely done due to the low temperatures of the water.
