The wilderness of central Saskatchewan – grasslands, boreal forests, rolling aspen parkland and pure lakes – meets accessibility in 3,875-square-kilometre Prince Albert National Park. Canoe in a network of lakes and streams, camp in aspen and tamarack forests and see wildlife like rare plains bison and white pelicans, making the experience as wild or relaxing as you like.

The resort town of Waskesiu Lake serves as a handy base, offering visitors easy access to long, sandy beaches, swimming, boating (both motorized and non-motorized), camping and other activities, plus a wide range of dining and accommodation options. Popular hiking and canoe routes thread through a string of backcountry lakes and campsites, including the hallowed cabin of turn-of-the-century conservationist and author Grey Owl.
