Information & Facilities

Information: 1-877-537-2757

Chain Lakes Provincial Recreation Area was originally part of the network of Forest Recreation Program sites run by the Alberta Forest Service, but was transferred to Alberta Parks in the 1990s. It offers rustic camping and a taste of the boreal forest, with long summer days filled with swimming and fishing. You can fish from shore and from your canoe or electric powered boat. The lake is stocked with fish including tiger trout, and a boat launch eases your access to the lake.
