This small PNT is located near the west end of Wabamun Lake close to its southern shore. The site is south of Sundance Road and thus does not border directly on the lake.

Wabamun Lake (sometimes spelled Wabumun) is one of the most heavily used lakes in Alberta. It lies 65 km west of Edmonton, is 19.2 km long and 6.6 km wide and covers 82 km2 with a maximum depth of 11 m. Its name derives from the Cree word for mirror, ᐋᐧᐸᒧᐣ (wâpamon) .
Extensive Development starting with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway has impacted the ecology of the lake. An oil spill in 2005 and unauthorized development in 2011 are further examples of unplanned activities affecting the lake [1, 2].
