Fort Assiniboine Sandhills Wildlands Provincial Park

Fort Assiniboine Sandhills Wildland Provincial Park is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Nestled along the north shores of the Athabasca River, the province's longest river (spanning 66 square kilometres), it provides a range of adventures to make for an unforgettable wilderness experience.

A bird watcher's delight, enjoy the sights and sounds of great grey owls, cooper's hawks, pileated woodpeckers, and sandhill cranes - and the wildlife experience doesn't stop there. Mule and white-tailed deer, moose, beavers, mink, muskrats, and river otters also call the area home.

This is also a fisherman's haven - with rainbow trout, arctic grayling, northern pike, walleye, and mountain whitefish available for the picking in the great waters of the Athabasca River.
