Private beach access makes it easy for adventurers of all ages to commute back and forth (in case you forget essentials like your trusty SPF or snacks!), and there are endless ways to enjoy your time in and on the water. Canoe, kayak, motorboat, and swim to your heart’s content, and then enjoy the luxury of being able to shower off in comfort from the privacy of your very own cabin. 

Find the Perfect Catch!

Waskesiu is a hotspot for fishing in Saskatchewan thanks to its ample supply of lake trout, northern pike and walleye. Before you cast a line, it’s important to be aware of the regional rules for fishing, which you can find in details here. Points of note include being aware that angling is allowed from one hour before sunrise and two hours after sunset from Victoria Day until March 31 annually, you must have a permit, and there are limits for how many of each species you can catch on a single permit.

Lace up your hiking boots and/or grab your helmet and venture into the numerous trails that crisscross the Prince Albert National Park. From the short and scenic Mud Creek Trail to the challenging and rewarding Grey Owl Trail, there’s a route for every skill level to explore by foot or by mountain bike. No matter how many times you trek across the boreal wilderness, there will always be something new to see and experience. Keep an eye peeled for local wildlife, and keep your camera ready for some unbelievable shots along the way!
