A popular destination only 20 minutes north of Camrose and less than an hour from Edmonton lies Miquelon Lake Provincial Park. The Park is home to a rich mosaic of poplar, aspen and white spruce forests and flowering shrubs. This landscape provides many opportunities to view an abundance of wildlife, especially of the winged variety – Miquelon attracts more than 200 bird species annually. It is also designated as part of the Beaver Hills UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve. Other opportunities for recreation include canoeing, hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing on the 18 km of wellmaintained back country trails. Partake in the numerous interpretive education programs that run throughout July and August or lead your own adventure by borrowing a Discovery Pack from the Park Centre. Finish the day with a marshmallow roast over a roaring campfire under the night sky. Stay the night in one of the 273 campsites or treat yourself to comfort camping in a yurt! If you’re more interested in an adventure packed day trip, try Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area. This massive landbase runs along the southern boundary of Elk Island National Park and offers free access to 170 km of back-country trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Home of the Canadian Birkebeiner Ski Festival, the site offers some of the best crosscountry skiing in Alberta. Come for the day with a picnic basket, a pair of binoculars in hand, and a spirit for nature exploration any day of the year. Check out the events in these parks at www.albertaparks.ca

MAJOR ATTRACTION Less than 35 minutes east of Edmonton lies a year-round oasis where bison roam freely, sun glistens off lakes and ponds, and stars light-up the night sky; Elk Island National Park. This gentle wilderness of aspen woodlands, prairie meadows and pockets of wetland is a wildlife-watchers paradise; free roaming bison, elk, deer, moose, and more than 250 bird species call this place home. A short drive to Elk Island National Park rewards visitors with countless recreation opportunities; hike or bike over 80 km of trails, rent canoes and paddle around the islands on Astotin Lake, take in a free program, or borrow a geocaching kit and enjoy a nearly 200 square kilometre scavenger hunt. Fun doesn't end as the sun begins to set; stay warm by a fire and look into a sky filled with stars and dancing Northern Lights. Without the glow of city lights around you'll see more than you knew existed! With so much to do why not stay the night? Book a campsite and bring your tent or RV to the Astotin Lake Campground, or pack a backpack and make the 4 km hike into Oster Lake Backcountry Campground. If you want the experience of camping but need a few more creature comforts, oTENTik's are available at Elk Island! oTENTik’s are a cross between a tent and a rustic cabin; bring a sleeping bag and discover the joys of camping without any fuss.
