Location: West shore of Ross Lake 275kms north of Edmonton, 120kms north of Vermilion Alberta. Whitney Lakes Provincial Park.

Description: Ross Lake campground contains 149 campsites suitable for both RV's and tents with a few choice sites located near the lake. The sites are well treed and nicely spaced providing good privacy. Amenities include group camping, handicap spots, sandy beach, picnic shelters, public phone, concession, dry & wet toilets, showers, water, fire wood available for sale, picnic tables, sani dump, swimming areas, boat launch, fish cleaning stations and play grounds. Whitney and Ross Lake offers good Northern Pike, Perch and Walleye fishing. You'll need a fishing license to try your luck. This campground is excellent for families with young children, kids can spend hours on the beach and nearby playgrounds. Ross Lake is crystal clear and great for swimming. Boaters will find well designed easy to use boat launches. Whitney Lake day use area and Ross Lake Campground are well maintained. Ross Lake may be considered one of the nicest beach and lake campgrounds located in Alberta, well worth the visit. There are over 30kms of hiking trails that wind through the Provincial Park along with several excellent viewing areas. You can hike to all the lakes located in the Park. Iron horse trail which is an abandoned rail line runs 260kms from Waskatenau to Cold Lake. Whitney Lakes Provincial Park is good for wildlife and bird watching, Deer, Moose and Beaver can be found here in large numbers. The pine trees located in the area are very unusual, they look weather beaten with extensive growth on their tops. I've never seen tree's like this anywhere else in Alberta. There may be some confusion as to Whitney Lake Campground. I could only find a day use area at Whitney Lake. The main campground is Ross Lake which is located in Whitney Lakes Provincial Park. Night skies here rank #1-2 on the Bortle Scale. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and closing dates.
