One Island Lake Provincial Park takes up 59 hectares and is located on the Alberta Plateau. The lake is a spring fed lake and has been stocked annually with brook and rainbow trout since 1963 and offers Trophy Trout Fishing. Many are impressed by the clear water of the lake which offers opportunities for fishing, swimming, water-skiing, windsurfing, SCUBA diving or even snorkeling. The deepest part of the lake is 10.7 meters.

Originally, in 1948 the lake was named HOP lake, after three men from Hythe who were in the lumber business : Len Hodgson, Bill Oakford and Art Pearson. (The initials of their last name spelled HOP) They were involved in building the first road to the lake as well as having some of the first lots available. Government surveyors later named it One Island Lake because of the small island located in one corner of the lake. It became a Provincial Park in February of 1990.

There are a total of 36 vehicle/tent campsites located on the east side of the lake each with picnic table, and firepit. There is a good number of campsites that back onto the lake. Small boats can be carried a short distance from the campsite and dropped in the lake. Larger boats use the boat launch area only a short distance away located near the entrance to the park. There is a firewood fee and all campsites are on a first-come first-served basis. The park has pit toilets, two hand pumps, but no sani-station facilities and there are no electrical hook-ups. The tenting area 1-4, is next to the Day-Use area. Also there are more tenting past campsites 20-23.
