  • Unfortunately I would not want to stay at the campground again. Lots of drunk partying, the bushes need to be cleaned out as there is garbage and dead tress that are a potential hazard. No wifi and da...  read more »

  • PLAY • NEIL'S 2016 ADVENTURE Your day in Moose Mountain Provincial Park begins as the sun peers through your tent’s mesh windows. The cool air of the morning is the perfect time to explore one of the many interpretive trails. Then after a quick stop at the impressive stone built visitor centre, it’s off to Little Kenosee for some kayaking. Twenty kilometres southeast of the lake is Cannington Manor. Located on the original village site, visitors can explore life in the Victorian community during the 1880’s. There are five period-accurate furnished buildings to explore and various hands on activities to partake in, such as rope making, croquet, tennis and horseshoes. Following that busy morning, Allison Park Store offers many tasty options for lunch, but you’ll need to save some valuable stomach real estate for dessert. The ice cream here is legendary and the blueberry swirl is amazing. Give yourself a bit of time to digest before hitting the beach and going for a swim. The water is Goldilocks and the sandy beach is perfect for relaxing. To round out the day, head a few kilometres south to the Prairie Dog Drive-In Theatre in Carlyle. The notion of a drive-in theatre may sound old school, but be assured there’s nothing old about this drive-in. Ray has a monster locked in his projector room and I’m guessing it ate the old 35mm projector. For the fellow nerds, the new beast boasts an astonishing 33,000 lumens - this is the brightest drive-in theatre across all of the Canadian prairies. At this point if haven’t yet collapsed and still have a bit of energy left, why not build a campfire, roast some marshmallows and share some horror stories? Keep in mind, tomorrow will be just as jammed packed with adventure so you’d better start counting sheep.
  • Situated in the South East corner of the prairie province Saskatchewan this park is an absolute pearl. As the name suggests it is a hilly area that is heavily wooded. There are many, many freshwater lakes inside the park most of which can be reached via well kept hiking paths. Some campsites back directly onto the Little Kenosee Lake. Most of the fun happens on the large Kenosee Lake, things like seadooing, water skiing, fishing etc. Power boats are not permitted on Little Kenosee Lake and that is what makes it great! Here you can use your kayak, canoe, wind surf board or whatever. Since most people prefer powertoys this lake is super peaceful. When you sit by the campfire you can gaze upon the lake and think you are truly alone on the beautiful wilderness.
  • Well maintained and quiet mid week. Very busy on weekends in summer. The lake is nasty and smells bad. Good restaurant nearby at the golf course
  • Great place to go camping. Lots to do from boating and canoeing to golf and waterside.
  • Firewood does not burn that well, the lake water is very dirty, the scenery isn't that nice in my opinion, the showers are usally very cold or very hot. Rarely will it be a comfortable temperature.
