The Hay River Territorial Park and Campground is located on Vale Island on those sandy shores of Great Slave Lake. The campground itself (21 bays, some with electricity, showers, laundry facilities) is set back in a wooded area, connected to the beach by trails. There's a central gathering building, picnic, day-use area in the campground, as well as a number of firepit facilities on the beach, where you will also find a large shelter which provides an enclosed dining area with a wood stove.
The nautical theme of the park was specially designed to reflect the harbour town aspect of Hay River - even the extensive playground equipment carries this theme. Beach volleyball can be played on two 'courts' - kids can build wonderful sandcastles (adults, too, of course) and grassed areas with picnic tables are plentiful.
While it's safe to swim along this shore, there is no life guard on duty and all the usual precautions should be taken.
