Maqua Lake Provincial Recreation Area
Located atop Stony Mountain, about 50 kilometres from Fort McMurray, you'll find a day-use area with a small beach and a beautiful lake, along with two group camping sites reservable from June through September. As motorized vessels are not allowed on Maqua Lake, it is a haven for kayakers, canoeists and standup paddle boarders. Anglers may wish to leave their rods at home, as the locals say the lake hasn’t been stocked in many years. The road in to Maqua Lake can be quite rugged so a 4WD vehicle with good ground clearance is recommended in spring and essential in the winter.
