The best view in Cold Lake is from the marina breakwater. You might catch a glimpse of the "big fish" – the "Legend of the Kinosoo" that the Dene Suline believe lurks in the depths of the lake.
The Cold Lake Marina offers daily, weekly, and monthly berth rentals from May 1 to September 30, with onsite security, call 780-639-3316 to book your berth.
There is fuel, a pump-out system, sail boat lifting mast, and a fish cleaning station available for boaters. Fishing is allowed on the outside of the breakwater.
There are several restaurants along the lakeshore. Grab an ice cream after your jaunt along the trail, or bring your catch into Clarks General Store and Eatery and they'll whip up a unique recipe – just give them advance notice. One block from the lakeshore is Marina Mall where you can stock up on all the necessities.
Lakeside Marine & Off Road
Lakeside marine and off road has accessories, parts, and repairs for boats, quads, and sleds. They also sell Lake Trout fishing tackle, bait, tubes, ropes, and outboard engines.
Just a short walk along the lakeshore you'll find Kinosoo Beach, a three block stretch of fine sand named one of the top 25 beaches in Canada by Canadian Geographic. Beach volleyball courts, a children's playground, an ice cream stand, and the occasional live performance help break up the long summer day.
