WILLIAMSON PROVINCIAL PARK, Alberta
was designated a Provincial Park in 1960. Named after Alexander Williamson an area landowner who settled in the area in the early 1920's. Originally from Scotland.


The Sekanie, Beaver, Chipewyan and Cree lived in the Sturgeon Lake in the early years. The name Sturgeon lake came from the translation of the word "Mo-koo-oo-pow" . Settlers began arriving in the early 1900's. The area was first surveyed in 1908 and eventually Alexander Williamson owned it in 1945. The government bought the land for $2500 in 1960 and later that year became a provincial park to be enjoyed by all.



Fishing at Sturgeon Lake
Sturgeon Lake offers hours of fun fishing for the big one. Northern Pike to 30 pounds and Walleye to 5 pounds. Perch to 2 pounds and Whitefish to 4 pounds.

The lake is at its best when the water is cooler, in the months of June and early July. As the temperatures increase so does the growth of the weeds and the quality of the water.

Cosy Cove Marina & Campground
A private campground located a few kilometers to the west of Williamson Provincial Park, also on the south shore of Sturgeon Lake. This area is much shallower and narrower and often referred to as "The Narrows". Approximately 23 km west of Valleyview.
