Welcome to the
Village of Bittern Lake.

 Bittern Lake is located on Highway 13 between Camrose and Wetaskiwin.

It is a charming, cozy village that is known for its beauty. Each resident takes pride in generating their personal piece of paradise.

Our lake is not recreational, it is a nature reserve and is not accessible other than by a walking trail, please respect the wildlife in the area.  The area is Crown Land and no camping permitted within 1KM of any road, or on any roadway within the Village Boundaries.

Rink   

Please follow Provincial Guidelines and note that the playground, rink and soccer field are for use at your own risk.  Please clear the ice completely to use the ice and allow for flooding as necessary.  If the lights are on when it’s dark, then it’s ready to use.

Bittern Lake has a wildlife reserve, not a recreational lake which boasts birds and other wildlife. There is no vehicular access to the lake, however, there is a walking trail, we are waiting for information from the relevant authorities so that our volunteer group can maintain the area.  This area is Crown land and as such cannot be used for camping, or use by 4×4 vehicles, ATVs are permitted on the land, however please do not use in the lake bed.

We have household waste transfer and recycle facility for use by residents, it is NOT a dump.  Any items for the dump are required to be taken to the City of Camrose Dump on 50th Street, Camrose or to Camrose County Dump (Dried Meat Lake facility off Highway 21) as per Bylaw.
