Sites: RV & Tent 1st Come or Reserve: Both

 

Location:  189kms southwest of Edmonton, 68kms west of Grand Prairie Alberta. Note, 6kms of gravel road access.

Description: West Canal is the nicest of the three Brazeau Reservoir campgrounds and contains 18 campsites nicely suited for both RV's and tents. Amenities include water hand pump, dry toilets, refuse containers and interpretive trails. Firewood is available for sale. Campsites are nicely treed by aspen and spruce trees that provide good privacy with a few choice sites located next to the canal, close enough to keep your boat tied up. There is also a nice nature trail leading to lookouts with several interpretive signs explaining the local wildlife and vegetation. Brazeau Reservoir is excellent for power boating, canoeing, kayaking and fishing. Be careful with a power boat, several shallow spots and floating debris can be a real hazard here. The reservoir is man made for hydroelectricity and is approximately 13kms long with the dam on it's northeast end. Bird watching can be very good as the reservoir attracts several different bird species. Fisherman may catch Trout, Char, Grayling and Whitefish. You'll need a fishing license to try your luck. Night skies here rank #2 on the Bortle Scale. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and closing dates.
