2024 Marina and Boat Launch Updates:

Please be advised that the Marina Operator has informed Camrose County that they will not be operating in 2024 due to the low water levels. 

Camrose County received numerous complaints in the fall of 2023 that the boat launch was in a state of disrepair. The Boat Launch is not part of Camrose County’s Recreation Lease (as is the campground and beach area) with the Provincial Government and is outside of County jurisdiction. The boat launch is a Provincial Asset and under their monitoring and control.
