Rock Lake is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
The Rock Lake area is a significant wildlife movement corridor. Open grassy slopes exposed to the westerly winds provide critical winter range for elk, deer and bighorn sheep. The park is also home to moose, grizzly and black bear, cougar, wolf and a variety of birds.
The area is a spectacular setting for hiking, horseback riding, fishing, fly-fishing, bird-watching, wildlife viewing, camping, and cross-country skiing. Nature lovers and explorers will discover an array of sites and treasures from wildflowers, birds, and mammals.
Also, they will get deep into one of the most diverse Upper Foothills habitat complexes in Alberta, featuring dense coniferous forests of lodgepole pine and white spruce through tall shrub communities and wet meadows. Rock Lake is a popular fishing location primarily for mountain whitefish, and lake trout, although bull trout, rainbow trout, burbot and northern pike can also be found here.
More information on these landmark Alberta parks is available from Travel Alberta, Alberta Parks, and Parks Canada.
