Stanley Peak is a mountain located in the northeastern section of Kootenay National Park. The mountain was named in 1901 by Edward Whymper after Frederick Stanley, the sixth governor-general of Canada.

The peak is visible from the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 93. Stanley Glacier on the northeast face of the peak can be seen up close by following a hiking trail into a hanging valley between the peak and a southern outlier of Storm Mountain.

Stanley Peak can be ascended from a scrambling route by late summer but involves much routefinding among the many ledges and gullies on the north face. Climbing routes (UIAA III) travel the north and northeast faces.
