Park / Area History

Established in 1967 as a centennial project. The lake is located in the middle of a section of land that was crown land. The lake was originally called Fish Lake and renamed to Suffern Lake dedicating it after Jack Suffern who was a government agent (Forest Ranger) for the area from 1914 to 1945. Jack (a local Metis) who lived in the area started stocking Fish Lake with fish during this time and also planted a whole section of land to evergreen trees on nearby crown land locally know as our prairie forest.

Camping

Suited for large camping units, the park has 36 electrical and 20 non serviced sites. All sites are naturally drained. Each site has picnic tables, ground level fire pits, and a trash can. Water connections for some sites are available and from a tap nearby for some sites. Washrooms in the campground are modern flush toilets, and clubhouse has flush toilets and showers. Shade is provided in most sites by tall aspens and willow scrub into which the sites are built. Each site has a small bay with a large open area in front and will hold the largest unit. The clubhouse can be rented for private functions. There is a wealth of family or group camping available, as the open space in front of each site extends for quite a ways.


Group Camping

We can arrange to have some sites used for group camping and we also have a more open area without services which can also be used for group camping.
