When you drive from Saskatoon to Lake Waskesiu you enter a totally different environment. Gone are the rolling wheat fields. Ahead is boreal forest, winding rivers, and a huge lake. There is so much to do- fishing, hiking, birding, camping, etc. The little community on...More

Maybe not so high on the list of Canada's national parks, it is maybe only so because of its competition. In all rights, this park deserves better exposure than what it gets, especially so in the fall when the tree colors come alive. We were...More

Our only regret is that we didn't book an extra day here! We came mid-week in late September and the autumn colours were incredible! We stayed in the Otentiks and pretty much had the park to ourselves. Usually we are tent campers but were worried...More

So the national park is awesome, as usual. The beaches are great and the rest of the experience is awesome. The boat launch is not so much. After the federal government put in a bunch of money to the marina last year (black top, parking,...More

We visited this park as part of a Canada 150 Canada day long weekend roadtrip where we went to both Grasslands National Park and this park. We preferred this park by far, even though we ended up staying in BeaverGlen overflow camping. Waskesiu is a...More

I do believe that STC was doing a daily run into Waskesiu, but obviously that will be ending May 31 with the closure of STC. Other than that, I don't believe there is any public transportation running from Saskatoon to the... More
