Escape to the County of St. Paul

The County of St. Paul welcomes you to blaze your own trails and escape to the country. Our region is affably known as The Lakeland and offers ample opportunities for tourists and residents alike to enjoy our region. We are known for trails and lakes — with dozens of lakes, Alberta’s Iron Horse Trail and bylaws that allow for back road access for off-highways vehicles, it’s no wonder why. Some provincial historic sites include the Fort George-Buckingham House in the Elk Point area, and the Frog Lake Memorial Site in Frog Lake.


We’re proud to have been awarded the Trans-Canada Trail Award recognizing our work with partners throughout northeast Alberta to build and maintain Alberta’s Iron Horse Trail.

The County of St. Paul is nestled in the Travel Lakeland region.
