Hidden Gems: Locations Around Spruce Grove/Stony Plain

There are so many great places to spend time with your family in Spruce Grove and Stony Plain. But there are also some great locations just outside of town; here is a list of 5 places you may or may not be aware of:

  1. Chickakoo Lake and Recreation Area is located North of Stony Plain and spans over 480 acres! We often head over that way for a picnic and to enjoy the scenery. You can find more information here.
  2. Jack Fish Lake is located in Parkland County and offers a lovely area for: swimming, fishing, boating and of course picnics! Be advised that because it is a popular area the parking lot is patrolled on weekends from 10 am to 10 pm and there is a charge of $20 per vehicle to park there and gain access to the lake. You can find all the details here.
  3. The Pembina River is a great place to hang out, and there is a place in Entwistle where you can rent a tube and spend the afternoon floating down the river. The Pembina River Provincial Park is a great place for spending a day or camping for a few; there is swimming access and quite a few services. You can find more information about renting a tube here and all the details of the park here.
  4. Wabamun Lake not only offers lake access for boating, swimming, spending a day and camping but it also boasts a Lakeside spray park. You can find more information here.
  5. Allan Beach Resort is located next to Hubbles Lake and boasts a private sandy beach. It is my understanding that the admission cost is $10 per person over 10 years old and $5 for 10 years and under. More details can be found here.
