Lloydminster, it’s summer and as the temperatures start to rise, I bet a swim or a lakeside adventure with some ice cream sounds pretty good right about now.

Did you know that by heading up Hwy 897 North, it puts you into one of the country’s top lake bound destinations?  Bonnyville is home to 18 lakes and 11 lakeside campgrounds that will not only soothe the soul but leave you different in all the best ways.

“On Lake Time” means absolutely no stress, explains Ron Young aka “Captain Ron” – who lives his best life lakeside at Crane Lake. Discover Ron Young’s success to happiness by reading this ZenSeekers story and get planning: https://www.zenseekers.com/story/takeittothelake-bonnyville-and-get-happy
