The RV park lady at Blueberry Hill RV park highly recommended going for a round of golf at the Athabasca Golf Club across the road. We already were planning to do that because we knew that it was a good course. It was beautiful! Very well maintained and beautiful surroundings. We left there wishing that we had chosen to do 18 instead of just 9 holes.
We continued on up the highway toward Slave Lake. This section of the highway does have more truck traffic but it wasn’t bad. We stopped at the Island Lake Store along the highway and also along the highway to take a few aerial photos of Ghost Lake as you can’t see much of it from the highway.
Slave Lake is a busy community with the beginning of many fishing resorts/RV parks along the lake. Anything you need can be picked up in town and there are many beaches to enjoy some sand time. Many of the resorts have boat rentals. We went in to check out one of the resorts in Slave Lake, Big Fish Bay Resort, just on the west side of town. Lots of improvements being made here and very friendly operators.
Carrying on down the lake we stopped at Spruce Point Park, this is one of the larger resort areas. All the resorts mentioned in the blogs are listed on the Campground listings in the Highway Guide so that you can call or look them up on the web to find out their amenities.
Don’t miss out talking to some friendly people by skipping by the small stores along the highway. This is where you will hear the best stories around!
We reached the Hamlet of Faust, the year round population isn’t big but it swells considerably during the summer with 5 resort/campground areas in town or very close by. We went to BayShore Resort and heard that the fishing is great, everyone was catching lots this spring. If you have your boat with you, there are a lot of resorts that have private marinas.
