Big River

The Big River area, with its famous small-town spirit, beautiful rolling hills and dozens of pristine lakes, welcomes you to ‘Nature’s Doorstep’.

This area is the gateway to the wild west side of Prince Albert National Park. Known for its long Main Street that leads to a pier on Cowan Lake, this area has outstanding fishing and offers many other activities including hiking, biking, canoeing, camping, snowmobiling, horseback riding and even downhill skiing.

Nearby, at the Ness Creek Site, thousands of people gather in July for the Ness Creek Music Festival - a celebration of music, ecology, community and the arts. Other events include Country at the Creek in June, Northern Lights Bluegrass & Old Tyme Music Festival and Music Camp in August, a variety of cultural, recreational and educational activities for all ages, and 20 km of excellent trails. Just a few kilometers up the road is Nesslin Lake with beautiful beaches, well- treed campsites, yurts, and the most outstanding northern lights you’re likely to see.

Sturgeon River Ranch offers trail rides through prairies and forests. You may see Canada's only free-roaming wild plains bison and spot elk, moose, deer, wolves and bears. Toss a line into Tie Lake and catch tomorrow’s dinner or just kick back and listen to the loons.
