A roadside turn-out on the Yellowknife Highway just north of the Airport provides access to this popular recreational area on the shores of Long Lake. There are picnic sites, a boat launch and kitchen shelters, as well as a sandy beach, a playground and change houses. As one of the smaller lakes, Long Lake warms up enough in the summer to make it a favourite place for swimming, boating, tubing, water skiing, windsailing and jet skiing. At the campground, there are 64 powered sites and 39 non-powered sites, plus 12 tent pads overlooking Long Lake. Swim off Long Lake’s sandy beach, hike the 4 km Prospector's Trail, camp, picnic, canoe, or enjoy the attractions of Yellowknife, located just 3 km away. Urban convenience in a wilderness setting.
