You can spend the weekend there, fishing on the lake, renting a canoe from nearby Goldeye Centre or simply enjoying a stroll along its shores. If you’re looking for a little more adventure, this makes for a great base camp with Nordegg and Abraham Lake nearby along with a host of hiking trails, historic mine tours and much more to do.

The campground is divided into two loops with the first one consisting of 19 sites near the lake. The sites range from large RV sites to smaller sites that would be perfect for tenting.
