Long Island Lake Municipal Campground

Last weekend we were looking for a place to do some front country camping with friends that wasn’t too far from the city of Edmonton.

We decided to try Long Island Lake Municipal Campground near Westlock, AB. The campground is a small, well run, campground with a rather pleasant beach area. Most visitors seemed to be family oriented, perhaps because of the beach which has a playground on the perimeter. We were glad to notice this was not the ‘party all night’ crowd and things were very quiet by 11:30pm. A large number of ATVs were present in the campground but all of the owners respected the rules and left the machines on their trailers.

Campsites vary in privacy but overall are decently sheltered from the

All things considered it is a decent option for a quick camping trip if you are not looking to drive too far from the Edmonton area. It seems to book up early so you may have trouble securing a site last minute.
