The calm waters of Astotin Lake are a great place to launch a kayak for the first time. To improve your chances of catching a glimpse of bison, elk, birds or other amazing animals in the park:
Plan your visit around dawn and dusk, times of day that may provide a better chance of sighting wildlife. Many animals shelter in the trees during the warmest parts of the day.

  • Float your own boat or rent a canoe, kayak or stand up paddle board at the Astotin Lake Recreation area;
  • The boat launch is located at the north end of the Astotin Lake Area;
  • Motorized boats are not permitted on Astotin Lake;
