Eyes on Lesser Slave Lake is LIVE! 

Our exciting new project called ”Eyes on Slave Lake” is LIVE.
We have 2 live streaming cameras that provide 24/7 views of Lesser Slave Lake. View lake conditions in real time from anywhere in the world!
The project was developed to showcase Lesser Slave Lake to viewers around the globe, and to  help recreational lake users make informed decisions about lake use before they make their way out to the lake!
Special Shout out to the Sunstone Inn Bed & Breakfast, deSIGNS by Tam Ltd and RMS Electrical for their support in making this possible!
