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.
