North Shore Homestead

Just off highway 88 north of Slave Lake lies the North Shore Homestead. Here you will have a chance to explore Alberta’s natural and farming history.

From it’s origin in 1930 as a working homestead, the North Shore Homestead now offers visitors some great attractions.

Get up-close and personal with a heard of bison as you go on an in-depth, “Nose to Nose” interpretive tour. Up to 40 people can enjoy these majestic animals in their natural surroundings as you are told about the bison’s story. This is a sit-down tour and suitable for all ages.

The on-site museum has a vast array of items that reveal more local history, from hunting and trapping displays, to antique cars and equipment. The biggest exhibit however has to be the two Canadian record grizzlies!

The North Shore Homestead also offers various accommodations ranging from 350 Sq. ft. rooms to two bedroom units. Each unit has their its own character and, though they are all freshly refurbished with all modern amenities, the Old-world rustic charm has not been diminished.
