Elk Island National Park

Elk Island National Park

National Park · Alberta, Canada


Elk Island National Park is 120 square kilometers (46 square miles) of fenced-in forest and prairie located about 32 kilometers (19 miles) east of Edmonton. Established in 1906 to protect dwindling wildlife stocks, it is now a prime attraction with a fine herd of bison as well as elk, wapiti, deer, beaver, coyotes, and a few bears. Although it is one of Canada's smallest national parks, it offers all the opportunities for camping, hiking, fishing, golfing, canoeing, kayaking, and guided tours.
