Home to forests full of birds and a beautiful, natural white sand beach, Lesser Slave Lake Provincial Park has many unique attractions. The Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation is open year round with interactive exhibits about the boreal forest and in the winter rents ski and snowshoe equipment. The Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory offers public bird banding tours from mid-July until the Labour Day weekend. Favourite summer activities include hiking, cycling, swimming, sunbathing, birdwatching, paddling, fishing and kitesurfing, and in the winter enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing.
Park trails range from the accessible Songbird Trail loop to the challenging, but beautiful, Lily Lake Trail. A bicycle-friendly section of the Great Canadian Trail follows the lakeshore all the way from the Town of Slave Lake to Marten River Campground.
Marten River Campground offers 72 powered and 39 unpowered sites, pit toilets, paid showers and firewood while the RV campground at Devonshire Beach offers 14 unpowered sites for self-contained RVs. The Nest Comfort Camping facility is a great choice for groups of up to ten people who prefer the comforts of home.
Campsite reservations for the Marten River, Lily Creek and Marten River group use areas and the Nest Comfort Camping can be made online at reserve.albertaparks.ca or by calling 1-877-537-2757 beginning in February each year.
