Local Attractions

While in the County of Smoky Lake take advantage of the many opportunities in the area:

White bison have long been honoured by First Nations and Métis peoples, and they return to these traditional lands alongside woods bison, plains bison, elk, white elk and Percheron horses. Their return marks the establishment of the new Visions, Hopes, and Dreams Métis Crossing Wildlife Park.
