The north quarter-section of this site is primarily wetland, with a dense stand of black spruce, large bog birch-willow wetland, and a small area of sandy upland with jack pine and aspen. The south quarter has gently undulating to hilly terrain with aspen-jack pine forest. Halfway Lake lies in the Boreal Forest Natural Region, Dry Mixedwood Subregion. (Alberta Parks website, 2012).

The upper quarter is located north of the community of Halfway Lake. The south quarter is roughly bisected by a low-lying marshy area. This site is located in a small arc of Natural Areas with Bridge Lake to the north and Taylor Lake, Redwater River, and Halfmoon Lake Natural Areas to the east and south.
