Woodlands County

Woodlands County is a diversified district of agriculture, oil and gas, and forestry activities located 1.5 hours northwest of Edmonton. The County incorporates approximately 7500 square km of land and a rural population of over 4000. The County is home to the geographical Center of Alberta, The Town of Whitecourt, and the Hamlets of Blue Ridge, Goose Lake and Fort Assiniboine.

Whatever season you visit Woodlands County you will find the outdoors to be unbelievably beautiful and the communities warm. For the outdoor enthusiast, there is something to do all year long. Woodlands is home to an abundance of hiking trails, picnic areas, campgrounds and many rivers and lakes for fishing or boating. Big game hunting is excellent in the fall, and the 220 mile groomed Golden Triangle trail winds it way through forested lands and uncut terrain for snowmobiles and quadders of all ages.

See Fort Assiniboine’s “Your Town” video (part of a series broadcast the first Wednesday of each month at 6pm during the News Hour on Global Edmonton).

“Fort Assiniboine, the second oldest Fort remaining in Alberta, is home to the World’s Largest Wagon Wheel and Pick. The 7-meter high roadside attraction was constructed to honor the travelers who journeyed through the area on their way to Dawson City during the gold rush. While you’re there, be sure to travel back in time by visiting the Fort Assiniboine Friendship Museum.”
