Elk Island National Park
Elk Island National Park is 120 square kilometers (46 square miles) of fenced-in forest and prairie located about 32 kilometers (19 miles) east of Edmonton. Established in 1906 to protect dwindling wildlife stocks, it is now a prime attraction with a fine herd of bison as well as elk, wapiti, deer, beaver, coyotes, and a few bears. Although it is one of Canada's smallest national parks, there are all the opportunities for camping, hiking, fishing, and guided tours that you would expect. Check website for further details.
