On a hot summer day, Crimson Lake is the best place to go if you’re in the Rocky Mountain House area. It has a large sandy beach, playground, volleyball nets, and 10km of trails to keep you entertained during your visit.
There are fire pits and picnic shelters with stoves near the beach if you would like to cook. If you visit the Crimson Lake store on your way into the park, you can purchase firewood and snacks or learn more about the guided interpretive activities in the park.
Only a short distance from Rocky Mountain House, Crimson Lake Provincial Park offers year-round recreation opportunities for people of all ages. With over 150 camping sites, 10km of trails, and a lake suitable for fishing and swimming, this park is a popular destination for both locals and travelers.
In the summer months, the campground store provides food, souvenirs, and toiletries, while separate laundry and shower facilities make extended stays more comfortable. Educational interpretive programs run at the amphitheatre and throughout the park, and there are ample trails and a clean and sizeable beach for whatever summer activity visitors would like to enjoy.
During the winter, there are cleared powered sites available at a reduced camping rate. The groomed and packed trails are perfect for fat biking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. The double skating rink gives visitors a chance to skate freely or start a game of shinny hockey with friends.
