Live on Lake Time

That's our mantra during the summer in the Bonnyville /Cold Lake region.

When you #TakeItToTheLake, your worries fall away, life slows down, and the sun is the only thing you need to tell time.

Live your lake life here – two days, two weeks or two months. We have the water. Choose your moments. All that’s missing is you.




The M.D. of Bonnyville Visitor Information and Interpretive Centre is located in the Shaw House at Vezeau Beach on the shores of Moose Lake. The VIIC is adjacent to the Vezeau Beach M.D. Park and the newly constructed dual-vehicle boat launch.

The new centre is scheduled to open May long weekend (May 19, 2023).

The Visitor Information centre includes:

  • the Trading Post, a place to buy souvenirs of your visit to the region
  • information on local attractions
  • guides for regional tourism and recreation
  • maps

When you visit the Interpretive centre, you will find:

  • historical timeline and cultural influences of the M.D. 
  • information on the natural landscape of the M.D.

Other VIIC amenities include:

  • jumping pillow for kids
