A pretty little lake with perfect views of the Three Sisters and Mt Proctor.

Maiden Lake is right in town and is a great spot to enjoy swimming, easy paddling and picnicking on the grass while enjoying the views. Kids can catch minnows, play at the little rocky beach area or explore trails and nature. Maiden Lake is open to the public; please be aware of and avoid heavy machinery working on flood mitigation.

Please return any fish back into the lake.


Maiden Lake is located off 19th Street in Fernie, behind Canadian Tire and Independent Foods Grocery Store. It is close walking distance to Fernie RV Resort, Fernie Golf & Country Club and the Best Western Plus Lodge.

NOTE: In fall 2019 the City of Fernie conducted flood mitigation work by and around Maiden Lake. The wooden dock was removed due to wear and tear. Please respect this lake and area for all to enjoy. Late in the summer season swimming in the lake could cause swimmer's/lake itch. If swimming shower after.
