Big, beautiful Christina Lake—you won’t get tired of looking at it. And with some of the warmest waters in all of Canada, your buddy won’t get tired of playing in it. Cottages line the southern third of the 6500-acre lake, but the northern two-thirds is protected within the ecologically important Gladstone Provincial Park. Recently expanded in 2004, the park now contains over 97,000 acres of some of the best grizzly habitat remaining within the southern interior of the province. It’s highly unlikely that you and your dog will encounter a grizzly, but black bears are quite common. Be sure that ol’ Spot stays by your side.
