Ghost Lake Usage

The gated community of CottageClub is situated on the eastern shores of Ghost Lake where the Bow and Ghost Rivers meet. The pristine lake water is clean and the area less crowded than you’d expect, especially compared to other developed lakeshores in Alberta and BC. Lake usage is year round and captivating mountain views from CottageClub sweeping west across the lake are reminiscent of beautiful Lake Louise.
