Where you’ll be

Rimbey, Alberta, Canada

Raymond Shores is nestled on the NE side of Gull Lake, Alberta close to Rimbey. A gated, year-round family-orientated community with some residents living here year-round. Surrounded by mature trees, paved roads, walking trails, and nature's little critters. The lake itself is quite large and busy year round.

The community center/hall is reserved for residents only and does have a pool plus hot tub. There is an outdoor pickleball court that is available for public use (we have rackets available for you to use).

During the warmer months enjoy access to the private beach area with a playground and volleyball net as well as horseshoe pits. There is a seasonal washroom with an outdoor shower available as well. Plenty of grassy areas to just stroll around and enjoy. A couple of covered gazebo spots with picnic tables are also available. Great area to spend the day at and watch the boats pass by, watch the water activity or jump in yourself! Bring along your paddleboard or kayak if you have one!

During the winter enjoy ice-skating (when the ice is ready and cleared off) with access from the beach area. Many enjoy ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Walking along the many trails is wonderful as well - you may catch some deer along your path. If you are interested in renting an ice shake there are rentals available from 'Jorgys Hot Spot' located on the NW side of Gull Lake near RV Heaven. They also offer grocery items, liquor, take-out hot food options, fireworks, and other random items.

A couple of ski hills are close by for some fun winter enjoyment - check them out for more information: Canyon Ski Resort (east of Red Deer) and Medicine Lodge Ski Resort (Bentley).

Just outside the gates is a public boat launch area (we have a boat slip available to rent for an additional charge). The local Meridian Market is across from the top gate and offers typical small variety grocery items as well as frozen local meat. Full-licensed restaurant with great homemade meal options if you don’t feel like cooking.

Explore Gull Lake to find various greenhouses open 24 hours/day, visit Gull Lake Honey (with a disc golf course across the way), 5 golf courses in close proximity, several beaches, Gull Lake townsite offers additional services as well. Rimbey, Bentley, and Lacombe are short distances away if you forgot something or just want to go for a drive. Some great local craft beers can be found!
