Random Backcountry Camping

Information: 780-675-8213
Due to the remote nature of these campgrounds, cleaning and sanitizing of shared surfaces is infrequent and users should be ready to sanitize high-touch surfaces upon their arrival. Be prepared with your own hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Note that cleaning supplies may be wildlife attractants, and should be stored in your food locker and away from your tent. When campgrounds are open and where it is feasible, outhouses will be open. Please help to limit the spread of COVID-19 by maintaining physical distancing from other campers.

Otter-Orloff Lakes Wildland Provincial Park is accessible by travelling north of Athabasca on Hwy. 813 for 50km, and east on forestry road for 20km where a dead end will be near Rock Island Forestry Tower. The remaining trail into Orloff Lake is approximately 4 km, accessible by OHV/snowmobile or foot only. This trail can be in very poor condition when wet. This location has no designated campsite, please be respectful with random camping. Lakes contain walleye, pike, perch and lake whitefish and are important habitat for beaver, muskrat and waterfowl. Orloff Lake has a great blue heron colony.
