Brazeau County offers the outdoor enthusiast a wide range of activities, from canoeing and kayaking, fishing, and water sports in the summer, to snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling in the winter. Three major water courses traverse through Brazeau County: the North Saskatchewan, Pembina, and Brazeau Rivers, all providing an abundance of recreational activities.
For those looking for something a little less adventurous, check out our museums and art galleries here. There are also many bike trails and walking paths throughout the parks in the various communities, picnic areas, a bowling alley, swimming pools, and rodeo grounds with activities for the closet cowboy.
If you're here during the winter, make sure you pop over to the Drayton Valley Omniplex and take in a Thunder hockey game.
There are four Golf Courses in the County: the Drayton Valley Golf & Country Club, Birchwood Village Greens Golf & Country Club at Lindale, the Big T Golf Course and Breton Golf Course at Breton. Please go to the Brazeau Tourism website for information and a description of each.
Don't forget to check our Maps page for downloadable recreation area maps on golf courses, campgrounds, and other outdoor recreation facilities.
For more information on some of the sport organizations and clubs in the area, all of whom host various tournaments throughout the year, and welcome new participants, please see our Recreation Clubs & Facilities page.
Camping is available along the rivers and at the Brazeau Dam, allowing for an enjoyable weekend of fishing. Be sure to visit the Brazeau Tourism website at www.brazeautourism.ca for details on pike, trout, walleye, whitefish, perch and sturgeon fishing.
