Figure Eight Lake Provincial Recreation Area is located 40 kilometers northwest of Peace River on Highway 737 in the County of Northern Lights. Figure Eight Lake takes its name from the shape it had before 1970 when the water level was low, in these earlier days the lake had two basins and resembled a figure eight.
The area offers a beautiful, rustic, family friendly, lakeshore campground which has many activities to offer. During your stay you can fish, boat, wind surf, canoe or just enjoy the beautiful lake view! Visitors can also enjoy a hike on forested hiking trails around the lake and you may see one of the multitude of birds and other wildlife that inhabit this area! An easy-access hand launch allows you to get your electric-powered boat on the water to find the best fishing spots, or you can fish from the seawall. Visitors may access the lakeshore by a handy paved foot path. OHV trails can be accessed nearby for hours of family fun! After a day of making memories, get ready to relax and enjoy your evening at one of 27 beautifully forested campsites which can accommodate RVs or tents.
Winter activities can be enjoyed here as well with 5kms of ungroomed cross country ski trails and ice fishing available.
