Tillicum Beach Park on Driedmeat Lake

Camrose, Alberta

Tillicum Beach Campground and Day Use Area is operated by the County of Camrose. The beach is sandy with a playground nearby and shallow waters for bathing in the swimming area. The water is usually clear with some weeds and algae later in the summer season. The beach is on Dried Meat Lake and is actually part of the Battle River. The name comes from the fact the Cree Nation in the area made pemmican in the nearby hills that flourish with Saskatoon Berries. The beach area has all of the necessary amenities for a day trip or camping.

Tillicum Beach Park has seven camping sites with power, as well as washrooms, shelters, walking trails, and a boat launch.

Privately monitored beaches are not monitored by AHS. Currently, no standardized guidelines for private monitoring exist.

Thus, the Swim Guide does not have current water quality data for beach locations listed as “private.” However, when we receive information that a beach is closed or otherwise unsuitable for swimming, we communicate this with AHS and share the information on the Swim Guide.

We receive notice of a private beach being closed, or “posted,” through one of two means:

An advisory is posted on Alberta Health Services website
We receive a pollution report from a Swim Guide user

We will always list a beach as “posted” when we receive notice of a watershed being contaminated. As well, we communicate this knowledge to AHS if it has been received by a Swim Guide user.

In 2016, AHS is hoping to have standardized guidelines for monitoring water quality. As this information becomes available, we will share it with Swim Guide users.

Monitoring Status

Privately monitored beaches will always posted as “No Data” unless we have received notice that the beach or location is closed.

A beach is marked Green when two consecutive single sample results are under 400 CFU/100 mL AND the geometric mean (average of 5 samples) is less than 200 CFU/100 mL over a 30-day period.

A beach is marked Red when two consecutive single sample results are equal to or above 400 CFU/100 mL AND the geometric mean (average of 5 samples) are equal to or greater than 200 CFU/100 mL over a 30-day period.

A beach is marked Grey if there is no current results or no available information.
