Engstrom Lake Provincial Recreation Area
A year-round fishing destination, Engstrom Lake PRA is located 78 kilometres south of Fort McMurray. This park is a day-use area only, so overnight camping and campfires are prohibited.
For boaters, motorized boats are allowed, but only up to 9.9 hp/7.5 kW, so it is a good place for canoes and kayaks as well. Services in this park are limited, so pack in what you need, and then pack everything out when you leave. There's also a hiking trail that follows the eastern shore of the lake and is not well marked - but that's part of the adventure!
