Aylesford Lake

Being just a 20 minute drive from the valley's core, it's no wonder Aylesford Lake is such a popular destination for anglers and nature lovers, alike. This lake is great for those looking to catch Smallmouth Bass - it's often used for Smallmouth Bass Tournaments in the province. In addition to its stunning vistas of tree-lined shores while fishing, Aylesford Lake boasts a beautiful beach area, sheltered picnic space and playground for the family. There is plentiful parking for both the beach area and to park your boat trailer. Aylesford also offers barrier free fishing access at its docks, where you can find the lake's public boat launch. Fish from the shore, your boat, the wharf, or enjoy a beach day - Aylesford is the place to do it!
