Gleniffer Reservoir Dickson Dam campground contains 30 campsites mostly located
on well kept open grass with a few sites next to the reservoir. Amenities include
water pump, dry toilets, fire wood available for sale, fire pits, fish cleaning
station and a boat launch. Gleniffer reservoir is excellent for power boating,
water skiing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing and especially wind surfing. The
reservoir was created for hydroelectric power and is approximately 7kms long
with a maximum width of 2kms.
Dickson Dam is located on the east end of the lake. The reservoir offers
good fishing for northern Pike, Walleye, Whitefish and the odd Brown Trout.
Fishing below the dam on the Red Deer River can also be good. You'll need a
fishing license to try your luck. The grassy area next to the Lake is
excellent for astronomers and star gazers. Night skies here rank #
4 on the Bortle Scale. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and closing dates.
