Sunset on Lake Newell Reservoir
Located on the east side of Lake Newell, Kinbrook Island Provincial Park has been a favorite place to visit for generations. The large sandy beach stretches into the reservoir and backs onto a pleasant grassed and treed picnic area. Close by is the marina, where sailboats, motorized boats and windsurfers take flight. Many of the 169 camping sites are spacious and surrounded by mature trees.
Rich in wetlands, trees and shrubs this area boasts over 200 species of birds that wither make their home in Kinbrook Island Provincial Park or use it as a stopover on their migration. An interpretive marsh trail will get you close to water-loving bird species such as pelicans, grebes, terns, cormorants, herons and gulls and a stroll through the grounds will reveal sights and sounds of birds you haven’t seen before.
Lake Newell Resort, located on the north-west side of Lake Newell, offers more opportunity for water-based recreation. A public marina boasts a large boat launch with ample parking and boat slip rentals available by the day, week-end, month or season. The marina also offers marine fuel service, snacks, drinks, ice cream and fishing supplies. A family friendly beach is located just a short distance from the marina.
