eLINOR LAKE RESORT
Elinor Lake Resort is a place to buy or rent your own lake lot. It’s a place to build a cabin or bring your RV. Then spend quality time at the lake – and in nature.
It’s all on the doorstep to one of Alberta’s key parks, Lakeland Provincial Park. It’s no wonder they call this “Canmore North!” This is Alberta’s newest cottage country. And, it’s surrounded by thick forests, gentle hills, and more than 100 other sparkling lakes.
Isn’t it time to get your place at the lake?
Elinor Lake has been a popular place to visit for over 100 years. In 1927, a story in the Edmonton Journal called the area a “campers’ paradise.” Most still see it that way.
Elinor Lake originally became a resort in 1995. It included cabins for rent and a 200-lot campground. In 2007, the campground area was converted to bareland condo.
This means visitors can now buy or rent their own lake lot. The sale lots are in the designated bareland condo area. The leased lots are in the seasonal area.
Condominiums are special pieces of real estate where part of the property is owned privately and part is owned by everyone together.
In bareland condominiums, the lots are owned privately. Things like the roadways are common property, owned together.

The Lac La Biche Mission was founded by missionaries in 1853. The Mission is the site of many firsts in what is now Alberta. This includes:
Portage La Biche connects the Athabasca River and the Churchill River systems. It was an important part of the early fur trade routes. The portage became a Provincial Historic Resource in 1993. It is the only portage to have this status in Alberta.
Many of the region’s lakes have been named after Royal Canadian Air Force members who died during WWII. These lakes are now marked with cairns. Mathews Lake is one of these lakes. It is also part of the Elinor Lake Resort property. A cairn sits on the south end of this lake.
