    The good: -Camp ground is nice..well treed and most sites are quite large. We were able to fit 2 vehicles, boat and trailer..and still had room to move around. Not all sites are that big but they do have a small extra parking area in each loop that could hold 2 trucks or 3 small cars or a couple of smaller boats. - Powered sites. Campground has showers and laundry and very small store. - Really really nice trails..and lots of them... gives you something to do when your rained or blown off the lake which is often. The not so good: - blue green algae already (July long) beaches closed. -Lots of standing water/slews can lead to flooding. They are trying to deal with it but its a bit of a mess atm. - Crazy amount of dead fall. It's an eye sore...and is a fire keg waiting to happen.

    This is by far the loveliest provincial park I've been to in Alberta. Gorgeous hiking trails and quiet, sandy beaches. I did a four day solo tent trip out here and had a blast. Quiet, fairly private spots. Hiking the entire island took me about 7 hours (~30km), and I brought my own kayak for a paddle one day. Tried fishing as well but no bites. I also rented a paddle board from the campground for $30/day, very fun option! Unfortunately there was quite a bit of wildfire smoke when I was there and a bit of a blue green algae bloom in the water but even those didn't dampen the trip (although be sure to rinse off well after touching the water). Would highly recommend this campground!

    Campground and cabins both are very well maintained. It has a large lake with several beaches. The trails look like a rainforest which is gorgeous.

    Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park is an absolute gem for families with kids! The sandy beach is perfect for swimming and building sandcastles, while the playground offers endless fun and entertainment. One thing that really impressed me was the convenience of multiple bathrooms scattered throughout the park, making it easy to find a clean facility whenever needed. And let's not forget about the breathtaking views - this park truly showcases nature's beauty at its finest. I highly recommend Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park for a memorable family outing!

    I came here for work to do some trail maintenance... Great park! The trails are beautiful, though some are maintained better than others. Maps are posted in multiple places to make navigating the park easy. There is a large beach, picnic sites, a decent sized campground with an ice cream store, and other fun things!

    Staying in the comfort cabins has been phenomenal. Lakeviews and wildlife while having the "at home" feeling. Cabins are beautiful and exceedingly well maintained.

    Our cabin experience at Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park was simply exceptional - nestled in the heart of nature, the cozy accommodations provided the perfect escape from the daily hustle and bustle. From the tranquil mornings sipping coffee on the porch to the evenings spent around a campfire under the starry sky, it was a memorable and rejuvenating getaway. The park's stunning landscapes and abundant wildlife made us feel truly connected to the natural world.

    Great campground...tons of trails and places to walk. There's a few beaches so you can spread out if it's busy. Huge day use area with multiple "sites" to use. Beautiful for scenery. Lots of wildlife. They have a store and sell pops, ice cream, camping supplies, beach toys, etc, which is always a bonus. Town isn't too far which is convenient. They also have a couple playgrounds to entertain the kidlets. 2022 showed us terrible blue/green algae all over the lake so it made it hard to fish, swim or tube, but we managed. Also had warnings this year of fecal bacteria so the campground beach was recommended that it not be used. I would definitely double check those details, but otherwise a great provincial park!

    Nice park with private lots, unfortunately the lake had algae and swimming was not safe. Showers and washrooms were far away. Bike ride to town was nice with the nice paved trail all the way

    Park and campground was great. The swing advisory for blue green algae was disappointing so we went somewhere else for a beach day.

    Excellent cabin experience! Clean and warm....all you could ask for in the winter! Driveway was plowed out, deck was shovelled and there were actual wine glasses to use! Definitely would stay here again!

    I stayed here in the fall for 4 days and loved it. This is the only Alberta provincial park that is on an island and it has the oldest forest growth in the province. There is so much to do at this campground that I didn't get to go on all of the trails, hit the beach, or attend any of the guided tours or interpretive sessions. I did bring my kayak with me, so I was able to enjoy being on a large lake with the mallards, loons, and other waterfowl. I even saw a bald eagle the size of a large dog when I paddled around Birch Island. The highlight for me was sitting around the campfire, looking at all of the stars provided by the dark sky preserve, while listening to the waves crashing against the shore from my waterfront site. Some of the more mundane information: you have to pay for the firewood, but you get a lot for $10, the outhouses were clean, the sites were large and mostly private. I learned the hard way that you cannot paddle completely around the island as there is a gravel bar under the bridge connecting the island to the shore. This bar made one side of the bridge have stagnant water that a bit of blue-green algae was growing. I did not see any anywhere else along the shore or anywhere else in the lake. I will definitely be going back.

    This is a nice little park for day hikes, especially in the fall with the changing leaves. There can be bears and coyotes so plan your hiking gear accordingly. The beach is not always open because of blue green algae so be sure to check the provincial website before planning a beach day.

    Just amazing peninsula surrounded by a large clean warm lake. Bring your bikes and kayak, this place is truly a must visit provincial park north of Edmonton. There are three main sandy beach on the peninsula and other access to some hidden gems.

    We stayed in loop D site 49, Very private spot close to everything..🌳 We hiked the whole island.... we did the outside trail day one was just over 10km. Second day we did the remaining trails and that was just over 12km.🥾 Totally doable in one day...😊 ++Showers are free and open all night++🚿 There is also washing machines and dryers which are coin operated.🪙 You can hire paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes from the main office.🛶 As well as buy delicious ice cream🍦 And there were lots of life jackets you can borrow for free on the beach.⛱ There are a few grocery stores, liquor stores, takeout and gas stations in lac-la biche if you need them. Enjoy your stay amd dont forget your binoculars to view pelican island...🔍
