Spruce Point Park Campground & Marina
Northern Alberta wilderness, the Boreal Forest, has so many unique and special qualities that make camping at Spruce Point the outdoors man's dream location and a families holiday hotspot. Fishing in Lesser Slave Lake is unlike any other lake in the province of Alberta; First the size of Lesser Slave Lake, 60+ miles long, up to 15+ miles wide, and Lesser Slave Lake is host to walleye, white fish, northern pike, pearch, and the only problem most fisherman have is deciding which fish to keep within their daily limit. Fishing is so good many zip back to the campsite and fry up the catch right away, going back out morning, afternoon, and evening. Spruce Point Park is truly a family-orientated campground & park, with playgrounds, over three miles of sandy beaches, the lake water is shallow for 100 yards in some areas; walking trails, bird watching, wildlife photography, mini-golf, golf frizbee, geocache hunting, or simply taking a towel and enjoy the sun on the warm sandy beach.
Since the campground and marina is operated by a non-profit society, there are local community volunteers, hired local workers, and the Park Managers that are always friendly and willing to help out Park Guests & Visitors with the location of park services, or what is happening in the local community around the park. A day trip into the local Hamlet of Kinuso for shopping, or arranging a horseback riding tour from one of the local farms; or just taking a drive back into the rolling foot hills to the south of Spruce Point Park; One can see why so many people call this wilderness location their home. No city noises, moose, deer, or elk walking around without a care in the world. Season after season people come back, and the smalltown-like community familiarity of remembering past visitors and guests that love the park as much as I do. The fresh air, amazing sunsets on the shimmering lake, there are dozens of reason why I have chosen this campground as my favorite.
Whether you are a caravan of RVs or a single family with a fifth-wheel & trailer; If you or a group of friends are ever traveling your way through Northern Alberta, Canada; you should seriously consider the Spruce Point Park Campground & Marina for at least one night of your tour.
