Aspen Beach Provincial Park is located 2 hours north of Calgary on the shores of beautiful Gull Lake. Enjoy sandy beaches, warm water, and boating!

Although it’s a busy weekend, the beach doesn’t feel crowded. Friends and families are spread out across the long beach. Children’s laughter carries from the adventure playground, while boats ply the waters of Gull Lake. The swimming area’s waters are calm despite the boat traffic because the boats are far from shore.

After a late supper at our campsite, we return to the beach to watch the sunset. A few paddlers dot the lake, and the setting is serene. The girls hit the adventure playground one more time and make friends with other campers.
