Duck Mountain Provincial Park

Duck Mountain

Driving up the mountain, feel the stresses and strains of everyday life slip away. The forest, acts as a green curtain that closes the outer world behind you,to make your thoughts become as clear and simple as the deep blue lakes scattered throughout the park. The spring-fed waters of Blue, Childs, Wellman and Singuish Lakes are legacies of ancient glacial times. Duck Mountain's rolling terrain of woodland, wetlands and valley meadows, is home to a variety of wildlife, including black bear, moose, white-tailed deer, lynx, coyote and wolves. The calls of waterfowl and songbirds are surpassed only by the eerie, unmistakable bugling of a bull elk. When it is time to come down from the mountain, you'll be tempted to start planning your next visit back to "The Ducks."

Where to Stay

Choose from four campgrounds offering a mix of basic and electrical sites. Group use sites are also available at Blue and Childs Lake. Rental cabins and full-service lodges are a popular choice for those seeking more creature comforts.
