east shore of Sylvan Lake approximately19kms west of Red Deer Alberta.
Jarvis Bay campground contains 168 well treed campsites for both RV's and tents.
Due to it's close proximity to Red Deer,
it fills fast on weekends.

play grounds, picnic shelters, public phone, showers, water, fire wood, picnic
tables, sani dump, hiking and bird watching and fire wood available for sale.
Although the campground is located on Sylvan Lake, there is really no access or
use of the lake due to the shore cliff, however there is a small boat launch for
canoes and kayaks. The nearby Town of Sylvan
Lake has a large public beach and a
very crowded boat launch. Expect to see an incredible amount of boat traffic and
hordes of people here during the summer months. A golf course and farmers market
are also located nearby. There are a few short hikes leading from the campground
that wind through the parks bush and forest.
