Elk River Provincial Recreation Area

Alberta Parks

Elk River Day Use

Season: May 1 - Oct 31

Park Closed

  • Due to the wildfires in the area, Elk River Provincial Recreation Area is closed until further notice.



    Recent changes to the recreation area regulation under the Public Health Act have affected provision of drinking water in this day use area – we cannot absolutely guarantee that water from hand pumps is free of pathogens because of the risk of ground water contamination. As a result, Alberta Parks recommends that you bring your own drinking water.
