Your Summertime Staple

40 Mile Park


With 11 kilometres of water, you’d be hard pressed to run out of room on this cool, crisp reservoir. Spend your day on the beach, take the canoe or kayak for a leisurely paddle, fish for the 5 different species the lake is stocked with, or fire up the motorboat and take the family out for a day of tubing. 


Campers in big groups or little groups for long or short stays are always welcome at 40 Mile. With 90 seasonal sites and 90 overnight sites with power, access to potable water and sewage dump, camping is a breeze for everyone from single campers to large groups. Select sites have sewer capabilities, and all sites are available May 1- September 30. 


Friendly faces, and beautiful places are just a start with 40 Mile County No 8. Red Rock Coulee, the Etzikom Windmill Museum, Vernon Coulee Bird Watching, and the Kennedy Coulee Ecological Area are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to activities just a short jaunt from the park. 

Farmers fields and desert valleys surround this sweet little oasis tucked into the Alberta prairies. Almost as if out of nowhere, trees rise up from the hills, hidden by the rolling nature of the unique geography surrounding the park. The canals filled with rushing water escort you from Highway 879 to your destination, Southern Alberta’s summertime staple, 40 Mile Park.

This expansive 11 kilometre lake has everything you want from camping accommodations to boat launch, and is the perfect destination for those looking for that classic Alberta summer experience; warm sun, cool water, and clear skies as far as the eye can see.

Whether for water activities, fishing, bird watching or gathering around the campfire, 40 Mile Park has something to catch your interest and keep you coming back year after year.

Welcome to 40 Mile Park.
