Great place to get information about the town and surrounding area. There are bathrooms and a gift shop as well as a neat little coffee shop. A good starting place when you arrive at the lake.

The Bistro in the visitor has a great menu, lovely patio the friendliest staff I have experienced anywhere in my travels. Kudos to whoever does the hiring and training. I will certainly stop in for lunch the next time I'm through Christina Lake.

Very nice building and a good place to stop for something to drink and use the washrooms after a long drive. Good place to get your bearings on Christina lake area.
