Located at the south end of massive Gull Lake, Alberta, Aspen Beach Provincial Park Campgrounds, with their sandy beaches and warm water, is sure to please the entire family.
Couple great beaches with two great campgrounds and you have a combination that’s hard to beat. Brewers and Lakeside Campgrounds are two jewels in Alberta Parks’ crown.
Both campgrounds are part of Alberta’s campground reservation system (Reserve.AlbertaParks.ca) which during our last stay was easily navigated by yours truly to select and pay for a campsite online just a day before our arrival. Although most campsites are by reservation only there are several first come first served sites.
Aspen Beach Lakeside Campground
Lakeside campground offers basic campsites, campsites with power as well as some with complete services (power, water and sewer). While the grounds are immaculately kept, the campsites here are much closer together than at Brewers and without the privacy of lush vegetation.
Aspen Beach Brewers Campground
Brewers campground provides no power but is our preference of the two campgrounds since much more privacy is afforded by the trees and bushes there. The campsites are large and as with Lakeside campground the lake is easily accessed. This campground, while nicely maintained, is left to grow wild and for the most part has been left in its natural state.
The campgrounds are connected to each other by a series of pathways which includes a boardwalk to protect the delicate ecosystem of the lake. Both campgrounds have playgrounds, showers and boat launches and each provides its visitors with a fantastic lakeside camping experience.
