things to DO

Paddling in Prince Albert National Park

The best seat in the house! Your canoe or kayak will provide you with a unique vantage point – the perfect spot to watch wildlife from a respectful and safe distance. It is a great low impact way to discover the natural wonders of the park. High water levels in spring make it the perfect time to enjoy the rivers.

Picnicing in Great Blue Heron Provincial Park

Looking for a day trip? Want to eat under the sun (or moon) Great Blue Heron park has several locations calling you!

Public Marina at Sunset Bay Resort

Skating at Elk Ridge Resort

There's no such thing as hibernating during the winter in the Waskesiu Wilderness Region. The trails are at full throttle from Big River all the way to Lakeland. Enjoy the scenic open terrain and forested zones as you carve the snow through Saskatchewan's lush boreal forests. Snowmobilers will find scenic rides through forests, along old logging roads, across open meadows and to ice-covered lakes. The local snowmobile clubs take good care of this network of trails, many of which double for ATV tracks in summer.
