  • you can bike, run, walk, jog or stroll on trails with different lengths. Swimming in the beach, picnic for a day. Camping for a few days and going to other nearby beautiful places/areas.  more »
  • The lake is good for swimming, you can enjoy a really good view of sunset by the boat launch, the campsites are decent, powered, shaded, lots of trees. I’ve never been to a campground where I’ve seen....  more »
  • Great park, gets amazingly busy in the summer but it has full facilities from showers to laundry. Great playgrounds and beaches, the camping spots are a good size and there are plenty of them. There is a shop on site but Rocky Mountain House is not too far away.
  • This is a nice park with a great beach on a pretty lake. It is located off Hwy 11 near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada on good roads. The boat launch needs some love but is serviceable. Huge parking lots at boat launch, beach and playground areas. Really nice, well maintained accessible trails – Amerada Trail. Level campsites, shade trees, quiet and welcoming. A well maintained park. All sites are unserviced. Sani-dump, showers, flush toilets, laundry, drinking water, small store, swimming, hiking and sandy beach makes this a great destination for a family vacation.
  • Beautiful, serene. Close to the mountains and close to Rocky. Convenience with a back country feel. I love this place!
  • My number 1 place to drive to in summer. A little far from Edmonton but it's quiet and peaceful over there!
  • Great place to camp. Has some awesome walking/biking trails. Great place to Kayak and SUP. Has good showers ($2 for 7 min) My only complaint is the firewood, it is pretty expensive if you want a fire every night as you have to pay for the wood and you don't get much for what you pay for.
