Keiver's Lake an excellent stay vacation



When the sun is shining, it's no fun to be cooped up indoors. An inexpensive stay-cation is an ideal alternative. So pack up and head West! Less than twenty minutes from Three Hills, you will find Keiver's Lake.
This recreation area has a lot to offer. Take advantage of the day-use picnic area, free of charge. A full, new play park has been recently built to accommodate all ages. There is a smaller play set perfect for children ages two - five and a larger play set for children ages five -12. Along with the play park is a set of swings and a brand new 1800 sq. ft. basketball court. The new court is covered with Deck Tile, a plastic tile that allows for better grip. The basketball nets can be lowered or raised as necessary and also have a place for hockey net attachments, so children can play floor hockey. All the equipment, (nets, basketballs, etc.) are provided at Keiver's Lake, so just ask the park attendants.
The baseball diamonds and camp kitchen are available for reservation. There is a grassy games field for playing soccer or throwing around a football. Coming in the next two weeks will be a beach volleyball court complete with nice, new sand.
Come out and camp for a few nights. $15/night means you have access to any of the available 52 sites. There are also four group sites, that can be reserved, for up to 25 trailers. Firewood is open to the park users and so are the full washrooms and showers. Be prepared ahead of time, there are no power hook-ups or water for camping trailers, but that is something Brad Buchert, the park supervisor, is looking into.
Swimming is not recommended in the lake, but it is very common to see people out on their canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and paddle boats.
Keiver's Lake park attendant and host's Marg and Tom Adamson are on-site 24/7, during the park's season, May 1- Labour Day, for security purposes. They make a point of trying to get to know most of the campers that come out. So far this year, they have noticed a lot of local first- timers, camping and enjoying the park with their families. The couple have also noted people have travelled from BC, Edmonton and Calgary to stay at Keiver's Lake. The park is host to many family reunions and school reunions each summer.
The Adamson's commented on the park's increasing popularity with all the new additions.
"Canada Day long weekend was one of the busiest ever," said Marg.
Instead of sitting at home on a warm weekend, or travelling to a distant destination, have a weekend away, that is not that far. Keiver's Lake has enough facility's to keep the whole family happy. So get up and get going!
