Fishing Summer Outdoor Activities

Let’s be clear. The fish are magnificent. But those long stretches between the action of reeling one in? The perfect excuse for soaking up Alberta’s natural beauty. A day of fishing on a secluded lake surrounded by forest or mountains, or in a glacier-fed big-city river is a day well-spent. • Go far: Fly north to where the trout and pike swim in the shadows of boreal forests. Panfry your catch of the day on the shore for the best dinner ever. Then go fish some more because the daylight lasts forever in summer.

Discovery Wildlife Park

Innisfail, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:


For over 28 years, Discovery Wildlife Park has provided "forever" homes for orphaned or unwanted wildlife. Animals that are not releasable have, historically been euthanized - DWP gives them a second chance at life by allowing them to live out their lives comfortably. Daily animal presentations allow them to educate their visitors on conservation issues and the challenges that are faced by wildlife every day. They also provide awareness of what everyone can do to help alleviate these stresses. Visitors love the opportunity to have face-to-face encounters with resident animals! An opportunity not to be missed! Also on site is a 63 stall campground with 30 and 50 amp power. Washrooms, showers and even a stocked trout pond for campers' fishing pleasure! Book an evening animal encounter with big cats, bears or a walk with the wolves. Camping packages are " build your own" with a camping site, propane fire pit, admission to the Park, evening encounters, and much more! New this year are cabin and RV rentals for visitors who wish to camp, but don't have a trailer or tent of their own. Visitors may also have their photo taken with our Bears or our Beaver - a great way to remember their visit to the Park!
