Camrose County is located a short drive southeast of Edmonton. This area is well known for its mixed farming, as well as for its population of 8,458 people who live in friendly communities or in the countryside surrounded by rolling hills and dancing grain fields.

ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS Make plans to attend Prairie Fun Days in August, and you will get to see much of what the County has to offer. Choose either a self-driving tour, or hop aboard the Prairie Cruiseline and ride in style on a Coach Bus (see ad page 119).

For popular campgrounds you can enjoy Miquelon Lake Provincial Park at the north end of the County, Tillicum Park adjacent to Dried Meat Lake just southeast of the City of Camrose, and Pelican Point Park on the north shore of Buffalo Lake at the southern boundary of the County. Modern campgrounds near lakes create the perfect setting for spending time on the beach, canoeing or just plain kicking back. North of Miquelon Lake Provincial Park is Bluebird RV Park, a 50+ peaceful seasonal RV campground (see ad page 107). Soak up the get-back-to-nature hospitality and create memories with your family. There are also numerous campsites in the hamlets and villages within the County.

Fishing enthusiasts can enjoy fishing for Northern Pike at Buffalo Lake and Dried Meat Lake. In the heart of the County, you will find the Nature Conservation Center, (pictured above) a re-claimed gravel pit that has been transformed into a beautiful day use recreation area. Located 8 km east of Highway 56 on Township Road 452. Winter activities include opportunities for cross-country skiing on groomed trails at Miquelon Provincial Park; snowmobile rallies are held throughout the county; and outdoor skating is available at numerous village or hamlet skating rinks.

SOUTHEAST OF EDMONTON

OUTDOORS The county has an excellent selection of golf courses from nine to 27 holes, all within a half hour drive of each other. Be sure to swing a round of 18 holes at Miquelon Hills Golf Course. Did you know they offer serviced seasonal RV sites? Or set up camp at Double Dam Golf Course and Campground where it’s much more than golfing or camping. It’s full of fun family activities all summer long. (See Golf Section page 25).
