Grist Haven Lodge

Grist Lake Lodge is located 200 km northeast of Edmonton; approximately a 2.5 hour drive south of Fort McMurray; or 3 hours north of Lac La Biche.

Grist Lake is a small, deep lake (3 miles long and 300’ deep in spots) with lake trout, whitefish and northern pike in Northern Alberta.

Fishing Northern Alberta in the summertime brings up to 18 hours of daylight which means you will have all the time you will need to land that “prize” you’ve been dreaming for.  For even more action, bring your fly-fishing gear and play with the pike a short walk away at Jumbo Lake.

“The finest fishing in Northern Alberta”

Grist Haven Lodge is open year round and offers accommodations to suit all your needs.  Situated on a white sandy beach on the south shore of Grist Lake, the main lodge constructed of native logs and six cabins plays host for some of the finest fishing in Northeast Alberta.

If you fancy camping we have a recreational vehicle campground, located on the north shore of Grist Lake, adjacent to the airstrip.  This campsite has washrooms, tables and fire pit areas; but no other services.

Come and enjoy the beauty and charm of nature in its purest state.

If you are looking for an excellent family vacation destination, Grist Lake is the place.


The main lodge contains a comfortable living room, cozy fireplace, licensed lounge and satellite T.V.
