Meadow Lake Provincial Park
- Meadow Lake Provincial Park
25 Lakes: The Meadow Lake Provincial Park is one of Saskatchewan's most popular destinations. It covers 1,600 square kilometres and features two dozen lakes that are linked together by the Waterhen River. The lakes are fished for northern pike, walleye, and lake trout.
Wildlife: The clear lakes, and the forests of aspen, birch, jackpine and spruce, create a diverse natural habitat for 130 bird species (such as pelicans, bald eagles, golden eagles, and blue herons) and a range of animals from beaver, coyotes and wolves, to moose, elk, whitetail dear and black bear.
All-Season: Although it's the place to be in summer, Meadow Lake Provincial Park also offers fine winter activities such as cross country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling and ice fishing.
Beaches: There are seven that are designated as swimming beaches. Red Cross swimming courses are offered.
Venues: Miniature golf. Tennis courts. Baseball diamonds. Playgrounds. Riding stables. Special park programs. Check the park bulletin boards to find out about all the good things going on.
Boating: Many lakes have boat launches. More remote lakes require a short portage. Canoe trips vary from a few hours to several days. Sail board, boat and canoe rentals are available.
Hiking: There are many nature trails throughout the park. Venture off on your own, or join the park staff on a guided tour.
Camping: Electrified sites, group camping, service centres with showers, and picnic areas.

- Steele Narrows and Fort Pitt
Located in the area are the historically significant locations of Steele Narrows and Fort Pitt. Steele Narrows was the site of the last battle in the North West Rebellion of 1885. Fort Pitt is the site of an early Hudson's Bay Company fur trading post. There are Provincial Historic Parks at both locations offering picnic areas and fishing.
- Clearwater River Provincial Park
Offering some of the most spectacular scenery in Canada, this wilderness park is for the adventurous who want to explore the land in the same way that voyageurs did 200 years ago as they sought for a water route across Canada.
Travelling from Hudson's Bay via the Churchill River to its headwaters in northwest Saskatchewan, the early Canadian fur traders and explorers would cross the Methye Portage to the Clearwater River, then canoe on to Lake Athabasca. Evidence of earlier visitors to the Clearwater include rock paintings and prehistoric Indian pictographs.
Offering challenges to the most experienced canoeists, this river features swift flowing white-water rapids, majestic canyons carved out of the pre-Cambrian shield, and more leisurely oxbows flowing through spruce forest. Arctic grayling, walleye, and northern pike are found in its waters, abundant wildlife inhabit its shores.
The park protects over 224,000 hectares of pristine wilderness. The river itself was designated a Canadian Heritage River in 1986 because of its varied and spectacular natural features, its history, and for its outstanding recreation opportunities. If high adventure is your idea of a vacation, contact the conservation offices in Buffalo Narrows (306-235-1740) or in La Loche (306-822-1700) for details on how to access the river or portage.
- Athabasca Sand Dunes
For those of you who think Saskatchewan is all flat, bald, boring prairie, you would be surprised by the forested wilderness of central Saskatchewan, and you would be stunned by the Dunes of the north. Stretching along 100 kilometres of the south shore of Lake Athabasca, the Athabasca Sand Dunes are the largest active sand surface in North America and are the world's most northerly major sand dunes.
The Dunes are truly an adventurer's destination. Two hundred kilometres beyond any road, they are reached by flying to Uranium City and boating the 50 kilometres across Lake Athabasca. Not the casual day trip! Only around 100 people a year are expected to visit the Dunes, but the area's unique beauty is truly worth seeing. The dunes even have their own unique plant life -- a dozen plant species that grow nowhere else on earth.
For information on how to visit the dunes, contact the conservation offices in Stony Rapids or Uranium City, or phone (306) 439-2062.
