Happily placed to the south of Lac La Biche, the body of water north of Beaver Lake, the hamlet of Lac La Biche sits in the middle of lake country. Get a vacation rental, and spend your time boating, swimming and paddleboarding. Relax in the privacy of your rental, or venture out to town for a hot meal. Drive a few miles to the Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park for a little hiking and sightseeing.

Located at the northwest end of the lake, Plamondon is all about the rural beauty of Alberta, Canada. A vacation rental here means plenty of peace and quiet time spent with the family. Take walks around the many lakes, or tie up a boat to your rental’s deck and go on daily water adventures.

Owl River lies conveniently between Square Lake and Lac La Biche. Although there’s plenty of water around for swimming, boating, and fishing, you’ll want to take time out of your day to enjoy the beauty of Lake County, just north of Owl River. Another nature option is to drive a few miles east for some hiking at the Lakeland Provincial Recreation Area.

Avenir

Beaver Lake

Beaver Lake

The hamlet of Beaver Lake lies just south of Lac La Biche. It also has Beaver Lake to the south, Missawami Lake to the west and Pinehurst Lake to the east. You have any number of recreational opportunities at your fingertips. Swim, boat or kayak on any of the lakes; hike around the area; or take a day trip to Edmonton to the south.

Tawakwato Lake

Hylo not only lies on Tawakwato Lake, just a few miles from Lac La Biche, but it also sits close to Highway 663 so you can jump on a cruise to a number of other wilderness areas or just explore the area. The rural area allows you to kick back at your leisure with your family or enjoy a good book in front of a cozy fire.
