Whitney and Ross Lake offers good Northern Pike,
Walleye fishing. You'll need a
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
of hiking trails that wind through the Provincial Park
several excellent viewing areas. You
can hike to all the lakes located in
trail which is an
abandoned rail line runs
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.
