Welcome to Elk Point!

Located in the rolling hills of Alberta's heartland, the town of Elk Point is situated on the North Saskatchewan River east of Edmonton and is considered the gateway to the province's Lakeland region. The community has a rich multicultural heritage dating back to fur trading settlements of the late 1700s, evidenced by the town's 9.8-metre (32-foot) tall wooden statue of explorer and surveyor Peter Fidler and a large historical mural that showcases the area's history. At the nearby twin forts of Fort George and Buckingham House, an interpretive centre offers visitors guided tours of the historical site and insight into the thriving fur trade that once existed in the region. Today, Elk Point has swapped the Hudson Bay and Northwest Trading companies for agriculture and oilpatch industries and serves as a supply centre for related businesses. Life is not all work and no play, however, for today's residents and visitors. The town celebrates its western culture with an annual, two-day stampede every July, while the nearby Lakeland region and Iron Horse Trail attract an array of lake enthusiasts, hikers, campers and snowmobilers to the area.
