Pembina River Provincial Park is a provincial park in central Alberta, Canada.

It is located between the towns of Entwistle and Evansburg, a short distance from the Yellowhead Highway. The short 16A highway spur crosses the southern edge of the park, which is developed along the gorges of the Pembina River. The gorges cut in sandstone reach 62m in height, and were formed during the glaciation.

Activities[edit]

Birding and camping are the most common activities in the park.[1] Water related sports like fishing, canoeing and tubing are also popular.
