things to DO

ATV Riding

Looking to get some mud on the tires? 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 through Saskatchewan's lush boreal forests. ATV enthusiasts will find scenic rides through forests, along old logging roads, across open meadows and around glistening lakes. Many of the local ATV tracks double for snowmobiling in the winter.

Beaches in Prince Albert National Park

There is a beach here to suit everyone! From the main beach in Waskesiu with a playground, showers and quick access to the townsite amenities to more secluded areas on Namekus Lake  that can only be reached by canoe.  Make a 'day at the beach' your Prince Albert National Park tradition.  

Bears on the Beach–Waskesiu Playground

Within the heart of Waskesiu, at the townsite's main beach, a giant ‘tree’ and life-sized sculpture of a playful mother bear and her cubs provide climbing opportunities for children as part of a new nature-themed playground. The tree and bears are part of the "Bears on the Beach" playground renewal project lead by the Waskesiu Foundation Inc. with Parks Canada as a proud partner. The new structures allow more children to play at one time, combine physical activity and learning, while also encouraging children to appreciate Prince Albert National Park and the boreal forest setting.
