Wabamun Lake Provincial Park is one of the closest campgrounds to Edmonton that also has a beach. Located approximately 1 hour West of Edmonton the campground (that has flush toilets and showers) is one of our favourite places to camp. With so many things to do, it might also become one of your places to camp too – especially with these suggestions of things to do!
