Lac La Biche, Alberta

There is a campground near to Lac La Biche at Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park and many more lakeside campgrounds in this region of lakes. Outdoor recreation opportunities abound.

One of Alberta's oldest communities, Lac La Biche was first settled in 1798 when David Thompson established a fur trading post for the North West Company. In the following year Peter Fidler added Greenwich House for the Hudson's Bay Company. The proximity of the Saskatchewan and Athabasca River systems provided an ideal location for the fur trade.

The fairly permanent presence of local Metis and Cree peoples drew missionaries whose fervour eventually resulted in a more stable community, viewed as a hub to the northerly missions. The future Lac La Biche grew as industries, such as a publishing business, a grist mill and freighting business sprang up and schools and other community services were built and manned.

The current Lac La Biche County which comprises Lakeland County as well as the city itself offers a variety of attractions for the visitor. One of these is the Winter Festival of Speed which features snowmobile drag races, quad races, ice races (for cars) and dog sled races, alongside other forms of winter fun like ice fishing and cross-country skiing.
