Twin Lakes is a popular spot for anyone looking to launch a boat for canoeing, kayaking, or fishing for trout and perch.

A unique feature at Twin Lakes is the wheelchair accessible boardwalk, which gives visitors with mobility devices opportunity to take advantage of the beauty and recreation activities along the lake.

Twin Lakes is a short drive to the Crimson Lake store if you would like to buy firewood, ice cream, or snacks during your visit.

    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.



    Water is available from a hand pump at this site. Although Alberta Parks strives to maintain water quality, we recommend that you bring your own drinking water.
