The Parc National Elk Island is one of the 43 national parks that can be found in Canada. This beautiful island is located just 35 km east of Edmonton in Alberta and is home to the 8th smallest park in the country. With an area of 194 sq kilometers, it is, however, the largest fully enclosed national park.

Established in 1958, Elk Island has the densest population of ungulates or hoofed mammals in the country. Among its wildlife creatures include the wood and plains bison, moose, white-tailed deer, coyote, elk, beaver and many more. To stick to its name, the island makes sure to maintain a large population of elks which was already at 605 in 2007. Aside from watching wildlife in their natural habitat, Elk Island National Park also provides opportunities for kayaking and canoeing, golfing, hiking, camping, snowshoeing, cross country swimming and many more. Swimming is not recommended in the island.
