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.

Reviews

For over 25 years, DWP 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 us to educate our visitors on conservation issues and the challenges that are face by wildlife every day. We also provide awareness of what we can do to help alleviate these stresses. Our visitors love the opportunity to have face-to-face encounters with our resident animals! An opportunity not to be missed! New this year is our 65 stall campground with 30 and 50 amp power. Washrooms, showers and even a stocked trout pond for your fishing pleasure! Book an evening animal encounter with our big cats, bears or a walk with the wolves. Camping packages are available or you can build your own with a camping site, propane fire pit, admission to the Park, evening encounters, and much more! Check our website at for more information and to reserve a spot for your summer getaway.
