Prince Albert National Park, Waskesiu Lake

(4.4/5 based on 70 reviews on the web)
Prince Albert National Park encompasses 3874km2 in central Saskatchewan, Canada and is located 200km north of Saskatoon. Though declared a national park March 24, 1927, it had its official opening ceremonies on August 10, 1928 performed by Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King. The park is open all year but the most visited period is from May to September. Although named for the city, the park's main entrance is actually 80 km (50 mi) north of Prince Albert via Highways 2 and 263 which enters the park at its southeast corner. Two additional secondary highways enter the park: No. 264, which branches off Hwy. 2 just east of the Waskesiu townside, and No. 240, which enters the park from the south and links with 263 just outside the entry fee-collection gates.The park ranges in elevation from 488m on the western side to 724m on the eastern side.Waskesiu is the only town within the park, located on the southern shore of Waskesiu Lake. Most facilities and services one would expect to find in a multi-use park are available, such as souvenir shops, small grocery stores, a gas station, a laundromat, restaurants, hotels and motels, rental cabins, a small movie theatre (which adds showings on rainy and cold days), Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) detachment, camp grounds, three marinas, many beaches, picnic areas, tennis courts and lawn bowling greens. The facilities and services combine recreational and nature experiences. Notably, the park contains the Waskesiu Golf Course designed by famed golf course architect Stanley Thompson who also designed the course in Banff National Park.

  • Stayed here in late December and it was gorgeous. Beautiful forest and lots of wildlife sign. Would love to go back in Summer. The park seems pretty accessible and there are few people in winter. Ther...  more »
  • What's not to like about P.A. National Park? This time of year (November) there are no crowds, but no amenities such as a store or liquor outlet, so keep that in mind.  more »

  • Beautiful place to be in summmer time alwayse busy place but got lots to do here and a place to go with huge family and friends.
  • Beautiful and serene. Surrounded by forests and pristine lakes. Campsites are well maintained and you can really get away from it all if you hire a canoe too. 5 stars!!
  • Nothing really challenging or adventurous. But the Trail Signs were clear and the information brochures at the beginning of a Trail are a Plus. They should do something about the last Lookout Point (spruce river higland Trail) It was not worth the effort. But maybe that was because we visited this as our last stop after a Day of hiking.
  • Awesome place to visit with many activities for people of all ages and an awesome beach!
  • My happy place. Always something new to see and do. It is very beautiful.
