North Cooking Lake is a hamlet in Alberta, Canada within Strathcona County.[2] It is located on Highway 630 and on the northeast shore of Cooking Lake, approximately 24 kilometres (15 mi) southeast of Sherwood Park. It is 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) south of the Waskehegan Staging Area entrance to Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Grazing, Wildlife Provincial Recreation Area.

Due to the multiple lakes nearby with sandy beaches, North Cooking Lake was known as one of Edmonton's recreation and resort spots in the early 1900s (decade). It was so popular that special trains operated to bring vacationers to the North Cooking Lake Station where steamers and motor boats delivered them to different resorts. Once a teeming playground, North Cooking Lake is now a peaceful residential retreat.[3]


The population of North Cooking Lake according to Strathcona County's 2009 municipal census is 49.[1]
