Wabamun Lake campground is well
maintained but often very crowded due to it's
close proximity to Edmonton. It
fills fast on weekends and likely all reserved before the start of the summer
The lake is 19kms long, 6.6kms
wide with a maximum depth of
11ms and one
of the most heavily used in Alberta.
In the summer months expect to share
the lake with lots of power boats. The campsites are
located further from the lake
providing less boat noise. Wabamun Lake also attracts a large
variety of migrating and breeding
waterfowl. The lake does not ice
over in the winter due to heat
created by nearby power plants. Night skies here rank #5-6 on the
Bortle Scale. See the official web site
