Local Activities, Sights & Events of Interest to Visitors Services at Cooking Lake Airport include a flight training school, charter services, aircraft maintenance and repair establishments. 100LL fuel is also available. Used primarily for privately owned float planes and small wheeled aircraft, the facility is equipped for VFR day/night with a rotating beacon, Visual Approach Slope Indicator System (VASIS), Aircraft Radio Control of Aerodrome Lighting (ARCAL), and an Automated Weather Observation Station (AWOS).

One of the most unique features of this facility is that it is Canada's only "bare land condominium airport". The owners of the hangar lots comprise the condominium association. In the fall of 2013 the Condo Association developed 20 additional hangar lots with taxiways to be paved in the spring of 2014. The hangar lots are for sale now - please visit for more information.
