“Lovely lake - nice campground”
Review of Goldeye Lake

Goldeye Lake
Reviewed 4 August 2012

Five minutes drive west from Nordegg is this nice little lake and campground. We were looking for somewhere that the kids could swim from shore if they wanted and that we could put our canoe in and fish - we were able to do both here. The campground beside the lake has approximately 20 sites, but only 3 could accommodate big rigs (we had a 30 ' trailer), however up on top of the hill is the other part of the campground where there are at least 20 sites and there are longer sites there, with more privacy. We did not mind the lack of good privacy as we stayed a couple days mid week and it was not busy - there are trees and bush between sites, but some campers you can see from site to site. Then on the weekend it was full, but we were established at our site and tried to ignore our neighbors. The campground is clean - each site is swept and tidied after the occupants leave. The outhouses very clean as well. It cost $27 for an un-serviced site and that included 1 wheelbarrow full of wood. You could pay extra for more wood. The caretaker was friendly and when we arrived she guided us to a site that worked best for us. There are a lot of little sites good for tenters or trucks with campers. The lake was clean, cool and the kids did swim a bit and float on an inner tube. The canoeing was nice and we enjoyed the site of the loon family swimming under our canoe in the shallows. There were lots of people fishing for the stocked trout, but not a lot of success. We did not catch anything. There is a trail that goes around the lake that my husband and son mountain biked - it took them 25 minutes. They said it was muddy in places and some of the little bridges were falling apart. We found this a good spot to go out on our daily trips to Siffleur Falls, Crescent Falls etc. Would stay here again.

I camped last year and I have to say that is is a beautiful place, very peaceful and the people selling the firewood was just fantastic. Upon arrival at our campsite we happen to see deer grazing in the back. that was a beautiful site to see. I highly recommend going to this place if you want a beautiful relaxing place.

Located 2 hours west of Red Deer, Goldeye Lake is just past the hamlet of Nordegg. We camped with our 20-foot trailer at the un-serviced lots ($15/night), which are spacious and surrounded by dense forest. The camp management is friendly and they keep the sites spotless and the outhouses clean. They sell firewood each day for $5, a small bundle pretty much typical for camp sites around the area. Nearby there is a cutline off Highway 11 into the woods, almost across from the Fish Lake entrance. Follow the hydro line. So if you bring your chainsaw, there is enough deadfall to saw for free. It'll keep you going for a week - see my pictures. There is also Fish Lake, which is nearby and the un-serviced sites there are superbly managed as well, with numerous outhouses nearby. Both sites have water available but no sewage dumps. You can dump behind the Nordegg Hotel, roughly 10 minutes east of the campgrounds, for a donation of $5. The serviced lots are crowded at both lakes but they're located right on the lake.
