An oasis in the south western Alberta prairie, Oldman Dam Provincial Recreation Area offers visitors a water sport haven just an hour west of Lethbridge. The constant winds in this area make sailing an ideal activity. Paddle your canoe or kayak for a close up exploration of the lakeshore and resident wildlife. The expanse of open water is also ideal for water skiing and power boating. Several campgrounds offer basic and power serviced campsites. Reservations can be made online for the Cottonwood Campground.
