Hugging the shores of Alberta’s seventh largest lake, Cold Lake is one of the fastest growing centre in northeastern Alberta. And don’t let the name fool you, Cold Lake is a community filled with warm smiles, crystal clear water and an abundance of natural beauty.
It’s a place where people come for a visit and never want to leave. Surrounded by Provincial parks and beautiful Alberta landscape Cold Lake is a haven for outdoor recreation enthusiasts.
With a population including catchment of 20,798, Cold Lake has three main economic industries – the Canadian Forces Base – 4Wing, several thriving oil and gas developments as well as a busy tourism sector. Construction on the Base began in 1952 and it is now the largest air force base in Canada.
Cold Lake is located 287 km northeast of Edmonton and 107 kms north of Lloydminster.
Take a trip down the Iron Horse Trail on your ATV or snowmobile, rip up the dirt on our newly commissioned motocross track or head out on the lake for a day of fishing. Enjoy the Millennium trail which runs from the Canadian Air Force Base 4Wing to the Marina. When you’re ready to relax, head to Kinosoo Beach, recently voted one of Canada’s top 25 beaches or out on the green at one of three local golf courses. Aside from our ice arenas, baseball fields, soccer pitches, and local ski hill, the new Energy Centre offers a host of things to see and do including a world-class fitness centre. Cold Lake really is a four season playground!
Our 250 berth marina, the largest inland marina in western Canada, provides access to almost 400 square kilometers of open water with lots of sandy beaches. Fishing is a favorite pastime here, which is not surprising since the lake supports a very diverse fish population. We’re famous for our six species of angling game fish and hold the angling record in Alberta for Lake Trout. A whopping 52 ½ pound was caught in 1929 with a line and hook.
Community Organizations are many with random samples that include Knights of Columbus, Lakeland Radio Society, Adoption Support Group, Beta Sigma Phi, Kinsmen/Kinettes, Agricultural Society, Kinosoo Performing Arts Society, Lakeland United Way and Music Festival Association to a few.
