Pine Lake is a lake in Alberta.[1] Pine lake is drained by ghostpine creek which eventually empties out into the Red Deer River. The lake is very rich in plant life which gives it fish. Some of the fish in this lake are northern pike, walleye, yellow perch and burbot. It is located 25 kilometers southeast of Red Deer. Most notable for the Pine Lake tornado that struck the hamlet of Pine Lake in 2000.[2]
