GETTING THERE:
The Highway west of Grovedale is paved for 36 km. The next 84 km of gravel road makes the journey to Two Lakes a bit of a challenge. When it is dry, visibility can be very low from the dust of the many logging and oil well trucks that travel on this road on a daily basis. When the road is wet from the rain, it can also be challenging. The recommended speed is 80km, but most likely you can expect to travel at less than that especially when you have an RV with you. Allow extra time to make this trip.

On the way to Two Lakes, 32 km from Grovedale, is the Devon Wapiti Gas Plant.

At the 70 km mark from Grovedale, you will cross Nose Creek. Next to the creek is Shutter Flats Recreation Area. There at least 3 group camping areas, pump water and shelter.

Once at Two Lakes you can expect to see the common loon and the osprey. Remember this is bear country and proper precautions must be taken when handling food or when out on the hiking trails.

TWO LAKES PROVINCIAL RECREATION AREA

Two Lakes Provincial Recreation Area is located 138 km southwest of Grande Prairie Alberta, or 120 km southwest of Grovedale on Highway 666. There are 2 lakes as well as 3 campgrounds at this location with a total of 86 campsites.



North Lake is the smaller of Two Lakes. There are two campgrounds situated here; Gunderson Meadows campground located on east side and Pine Hollow located on the west side.

Two lakes was named in 1952 and the name was used to describe the two lakes. A recluse named Gunderson lived in a cabin near the north side of the lake, which later became Gunderson Meadows Campground. Gunderson creek was also named after this gentleman who lived in the area until 1934. Two men from Wembley built a trapper's cabin on the North Lake back in 1935 and later built more cabins along their trapline.

South Lake is located about 3 km south of North Lake and is the bigger of Two Lakes. Moberly Flats Campground is located here. The water is very clear but cool.
