A great park for family camping, Miquelon Lake Provincial Park is about an hour outside of Edmonton. The park’s many trails that wind through hilly terrain challenge mountain bikers and hikers, and cross-country skiers in winter. Walks to Grebe Pond are rewarded with wetland wildlife sightings, including the ducks, shorebirds and songbirds that thrive in this habitat. Keep an eye out for other resident wildlife like moose, deer and beaver. Be sure to visit throughout the year to experience the crisp and peaceful autumn, the winter wonderland and the new growth of spring.
