Widewater Day Use Campground

Located between Canyon Creek and Wagner on the south shore of Lesser Slave River, Wide Water is a popular launching point for boats in the summer and fishing shacks in the winter. Crown land adjacent to the Wide Water Community Complex was also home to the temporary command centre for RCMP and Fire Rescue services in 2011 when the wildfire forced the complete evacuation of Slave Lakes 7000 residents and neighbouring municipal communities. Utilizing the temporary utility and infrastructure services brought to the site to help protect the community, the Wide Water Day-Use site is now a place for community gathering and recreation.
