I'm looking for lakes that you have to kayak into the campground, Similar to Coronet Creek on Maligne Lake in Jasper. Any places like that in any of the other Parks??

I'm not sure of what you're looking for but,off the top:
In AB K country. Upper Kananaskis Lakes has a campground on the NW corner of the lake.
Barrier Lake has a campground on the west end of the lake. Both of these are hike in as well as paddle in but only a few KM of paddling from the road putin.

There is are 4-5 campgrounds on L. Minnewanka in BNP but are often closed due to Grizzly activity close to Alymer Pass.
In Waterton Park, Bertha Bay and Boundary Bay are on Waterton Lake.

If I may editorialize a bit both Minnewanka and Waterton L. are in high wind areas add cold water and one should be ready for immersion and big waves.

Good suggestions.
Not in Alberta but Murtle Lake near Blue River, BC.

If you are willing to paddle the larger rivers in Alberta, it would open up some more possibilities. The Athabasca River in Jasper National Park has two paddle-in campsites. There are more.
