Consider Yourself Invited

Welcome to Sylvan Lake, where hospitality has been a way of life since the first cottages, dance halls and boat houses that sprang up more than a hundred years ago. Rich in history with the start of a lumber mill business in the late 1800’s, the tourism community grew as an escape to experience the resort community.

Today, the lake continues to be a vibrant recreational playground. Come out and enjoy the serenity and warmth of a small town community nestled amongst the trees. Gather with friends and family to go on a winter adventure… spend the day at the lake, explore the forests and wilderness, walk through and shop our quaint boutiques and enjoy the culinary scene with the tastes of our beautiful community.

Experience Sylvan Lake.
