The Driftpile Band is situated 30 kms. west of Swan River (or 3 hours and 15 minutes northwest of Edmonton)

The Driftpile Reserve itself is over 15,000 acres in size and sprawls along 10 kms of sandy shoreline on the south side of Lesser Slave Lake.

Highway #2 runs directly through the reserve and provides good access to the lake.

The Driftpile Band also enjoys a stable political environment and welcomes
the prospect of developing tourism on the reserve.
With relatively high unemployment, the project represents
badly needed jobs and economic opportunity for the
future growth and development of the band.
