HAMLET OF FERINTOSH
The community takes its name from Ferintosh, in Scotland. Ferintosh incorporated as a village on January 9, 1911. It relinquished its village status on January 1, 2020, when it dissolved to become a hamlet under the jurisdiction of Camrose County. Ferintosh's economy is based on mixed farming, ranching, and more recently, oil and gas, services and retirement.
Ferintosh is known for its popular campground, managed by Camrose County, and the naturally beautiful trails around the lake. The population of 200 has been increasing slowly over the past five years. The Battle River Gas Co-op continues to be a growing success. Ferintosh Hotel Bar & Restaurant is one of the oldest businesses in this area. The village's scenic amenity and strong social cohesion are felt to be major asset. There is a strong senior centre as well.
