Chain Lakes Provincial Park is located in a region that is often extremely dry. For this reason, only communal fire pits are provided in the park's campground. Communal fire pits may be used only during appropriate weather conditions (firewood is supplied at no extra cost).
Propane fire pits are not permitted.
Propane and gas cooking equipment is permitted, and charcoal briquette barbeques are allowed when there are no fire bans in place.
Boat Launch Day Use Area
At lower reservoir levels, the boat launch will not be accessible, and only hand launching smaller boats is possible. Please check https://rivers.alberta.ca/ and find Chain Lakes Reservoir for daily reservoir fill data. If the reservoir is at 93 %, it becomes difficult to launch larger boats (4x4 is required), less than 92 % smaller boats or hand launching is possible.
