Welcome to Lake McGregor Country Estates

Southern Alberta's best kept secret!

Lake McGregor is a clean, clear 29 Kilometers long warm water lake fed at its northern end by the Bow River. Ideal for swimming, fishing, boating, water skiing and wake boarding in summer and Ice fishing and skating in the winter. The lake is always uncrowded.

Perched high over the South end of the lake, Lake McGregor Country Estates is a year round, architecturally planned, gated resort community situated only 90 minutes southeast of Calgary, with its own water and sewage treatment plants and onsite manager and caretaker.

This is a place where our children can play without worry, neighbours can visit and share special moments, and everyone slows the pace down a little in order to appreciate life's simple pleasures. Just a 90 minute drive from Calgary and 60 minutes from Lethbridge means that you don't have to plan a trip to the cottage. You don't lose a couple of days getting there and back! You leave after work/school Friday evening, have supper when you arrive and spend the rest of the evening on the lake boating, swimming or fishing, or in the community centre pools. You can literally enjoy every moment of the weekend!

As owners we enjoy full access to the 13,000 sq.ft. residents club, indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, sauna and private marina. Other amenities include: tennis court, volley ball court, basketball court, baseball diamond and secure, year-round storage of our boats and personal watercraft.

The nearby town of Vulcan is handy for services and amenities such as restaurants, entertainment, grocery and supply shopping, 18-hole golf course and hospital medical services.


We know everyone is anxious for full use of the facilities to open within the community. The board is currently required to adhere to allregulations and government requirements to ensure the safety of all residents.
As the facilities re-open, all residents need to respect this communal space will only be available if residents are responsible and take the necessary rules and recommendations seriously.
Failure tofollow the rules will result in individual loss of privilege to the facilities and, if necessary, closure of the facility to all.

Anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, had close contact with anyone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days or has travelled outside Canada inthe last 14 days cannot enter the facility and MUST isolate at home.

Thank you for your understanding and diligence in this matter.
